Music by Will Hudson and Irving Mills, Lyrics by Eddie DeLange

Originally Performed by Art Tatum

Moonglow", also known as "Moonglow and Love" is a 1933 popular song. The music was by Will Hudson (19081981) and Irving Mills and the words were by Eddie DeLange. "Moonglow" was first recorded by Joe Venuti and his orchestra in 1933, with subsequent recordings by Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman and his orchestra, Ethel Waters, and Art Tatum in 1934 and has since become a jazz standard, performed and recorded numerous times by a wide array of musical talents. The Benny Goodman Quartet with Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa and Lionel Hampton made a famous version of the song in 1936, Artie Shaw recorded it in 1941, and Harry James recorded it in 1946 (released in 1950) on Columbia 38943.

Ames Brothers : Destination Moon : 1 CD : 2862

Ames Brothers : Destination Moon

The four tall (all six-footers), healthy-looking young singing brothers were a standout quartet even back in their grammar school days, but hit their stride, and the charts in the late 40s and through the 50s. This CD combines 2 lps in one bargain-priced CD, effectively giving us twice as much great music for our money. The first, a 1956 lp with Hugo Winterhalter and His Orchestra, features 12 (accompanied) hits, like "It Must Be True," "Ol' Man River," "That's The Way Love Goes," "Gotta Be This Or That," "Anniversary Song," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" and "Not You, Not I." The 1958 space-race inspired "Destination Moon," with Sid Ramin and His Orchestra, features another 12 (accompanied) winners, the title tune, "Moonglow," "East of The Sun," "No Moon At All," "Music From Out of Space," "Stella By Starlight," "It's Only A Paper Moon," "Beyond The Blue Horizon" and others. Powerful harmonies, great solos, memorable hooks in every tune-this CD is a truckload of big-fun 50s pop!

Songlist: It Must Be True, The Alphabet, Ol' Man River, Noche de Ronda, That's the Way Love Goes, Why Do I Keep Lovin' You, Gotta Be This or That, Anniversary Song, Love, Your Magic Spell Is Everywhere, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, I'll Never Get You Off My Mind, Not You, Not I, Destination Moon, Clear Out of This World, Moonglow, East of the Sun, Count Every Star, No Moon At All, I'm Shooting High, Music from Outer Space, Stella by Starlight, It's Only A Paper Moon, The Starlit Hour, Beyond the Blue Horizon

The McGuire Sisters : Do You Remember When?/While The Lights Are Low : 1 CD : JASM 601

The McGuire Sisters : Do You Remember When?/While The Lights Are Low

The McGuire Sisters (Phyllis, Dorothy and Christine) got their big break on the Arthur Godfrey Talent Show, where they replaced the Chordettes and remained for six years. They generated many hits throughout the 1950's and well into the next decade, and so popular were they that, as representatives for Coca-Cola, they received the highest fee in advertising history up to that time. These 24 romantic melodies just inspire harmony, and the orchestrations are brilliant as well. "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" uses imitation among the horn and string sections to reinforce the vocal line, while "Them There Eyes" is punctuated by percussion and horn accents and a half-time coda. The three voices, very similar in tone color and generally having a low tessitura in the female range, blend easily, and their vocal style is natural and without artifice. It's wonderful stuff.

Songlist: Do You Remember When?, Sometimes I'm Happy, June Night, All By Myself, Tiptoe Through The Tulips With Me, Them There Eyes, Mississippi Mud, Cuddle Up A Little Closer, Lovey Mine, Does Your Heart Beat For Me?, Somebody Loves Me, S'wonderful, Blue Skies, I'm In The Mood For Love, Don't Take Your Love From Me, My Darling, My Darling, Moonglow, Tenderly, I Hadn't Anyone 'Till You, If You Were Only Mine, Wonderful One, I'm Confessin', Moon Song, Love Is Here To Stay, Think Of Me Kindly

Vocal Majority : With Strings : 1 CD : Jim Clancy : VM13000

Vocal Majority : With Strings

We love the VM Chorus' a cappella recordings, but, for a change of pace, this romantic CD will soothe even the most implacable soul. Familiar favorites arranged by Jim Clancy such as "I Only Have Eyes For You" and "When I Fall In Love" bask in the smooth vocal blend. Most of the tempos are a slow 4/4, and the orchestral treatments are lush but restrained, allowing the melody to remain center stage.

Songlist: Some of the Songs, Chances Are, I Only Have Eyes for You, Can You Feel the Love Tonight?, Moonlight Serenade, When I Fall In Love, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, I Don't Want to Walk Without You, Moonglow, September Song, And More

Vox One : Chameleon : 1 CD

Vox One : Chameleon    onsale

This may well be the last album of jazz virtuosos, Vox One." These musicians created the most polished jazz (on the rock and blues edge of the spectrum) by anyone so far. Meticulous arrangements sung by superb performers make you forget any prior arrangement that was the benchmark to your mind's ear for how a particular song was supposed to sound. From the opening wail of the vocal electric guitar and definitive drum beat on "Chameleon" to the complex chord structures on "Round Midnight," you will be lost in a panoply of possibilities for the human voice. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Harold Arlen, Herbie Hancock, Theolonius Monk and more are treated with nothing short of the genius they deserve. The title cut from one of our best selling CD's ever, "Chameleon," is a cool and refreshing cocktail of vocal jazz. Having emerged from the highly regarded Berklee School of Music, their sound reflects the talent and training that enables them to articulate sophisticated musical concepts with ease. This amazingly rich sonic tapestry is heard in the bent notes of the "guitar" and the slur of the "bass" on this track-amazing!

Songlist: Chameleon, Naima (My Dreams), Moonglow, All Blues, Danny Boy, On Green Dolphin Street, You Don't Know What Love Is, Over the Rainbow, Teen Town, 'Round Midnight
