Beachfront Property : Straight Up : 1 CD : CR 0316

Beachfront Property : Straight Up

If you enjoy listening to jazz presented by enough voices to be a chorus when that embellishes the arrangement, sung by singers so accomplished that you can follow each individual voice through complex vocal intertwining, you will love Beachfront Property. This group of southern California studio singers alternate accompanied and unaccompanied tunes which become jazz standards after they are through with them if they weren't before. One notable original is Vince Guaraldi's " Linus & Lucy" adapted for voices by Stan Castonogia and the group.

Dick Van Dyke & The Vantastix : Put on a Happy Face : 1 CD

Dick Van Dyke & The Vantastix : Put on a Happy Face    onsale

Dick Van Dyke, who all of us loved in "The Dick Van Dyke Show," Disney's "Mary Poppins" "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and many others, ordered some a cappella CDs from us awhile back and we mentioned the fact on the news blog. Mike Mendyke, formerly of Five O'Clock Shadow, read this and soon thereafter happened to run into Dick in a Starbucks. One thing lead to another and soon they formed a quartet that would sing on the set of "Diagnosis: Murder". We love stories like this, and Dick Van Dyke looks and sounds great on these 14 cuts! "Put On A Happy Face" from Bye Bye Birdie, Randy Newman's "You've Got a Friend in Me," "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," "Baby of Mine" from Dumbo, "High Hopes," "Bare Necessities" from The Jungle Book, "Pick Yourself Up," "A Lover's Wuestion," "It's Not Easy Green," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Ac-cent-tchu-ate the Positive," and the heartwarming "Theme from Dick Van Dyke Show," with unpublished lyrics attributed to Morey Amsterdam. Two bonus cuts are Dick reciting "A Visit from St. Nicolas" (Twas the Night Before Christmas) and "Old Fashioned Christmas" a nice original by Bryan and Michael. Dick Van Dyke is as funny, personable and entertaining as ever, and Eric, Michael and Bryan, the Vantastix, provide great backup vocals, solos, harmonies and stellar arrangements for all the songs. "Put on a Happy Face," obviously a labor of love for Van Dyke, did exactly that for us, and we're sure this gem will be loved by children and fans of all ages!

Songlist: Put On A Happy Face, You've Got A Friend In Me, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Baby Of Mine, High Hopes, The Bare Necessities, Pick Yourself Up, A Lover's Question, It's Not Easy Being Green, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive, Theme From DickVan Dyke Show, A Visit From St. Nicholas (Twas The Night Before Christmas), Old Fashioned Christmas

Gotcha! : At Last : 1 CD

Gotcha! : At Last

First formed in 1996 by four members of multiple SPEBSQSA Gold-winning chorus the Masters of Harmony, these four young Southern California guys have gained a reputation for hot live performances, ringing chords that last forever and a rainbow palette of loud vests and hankies under matching black suits. First qualifying for the International Quartet contest in 1998 in Atlanta, and placing 20th, the group climbed steadily, placing 12th, 8th, 6th and 2nd in the world before finally capturing Gold medals in Louisville, KY in July of 2004. "At Last" is their 3rd CD winner, following "Again!" and "Right Now!"-all the exclamation points are actually appropriate to describe the energy and spirit of this remarkable group! The songlist includes the inspirational "Pick Yourself Up," "Vict'ry Road" and "Gold," romantic tunes "Somethin' About Ya," "Down By the Old Mill Stream," "More I Cannot Wish You," "Hopelessly In Love" and "I Fall In Love With You Every Day;" and Barbershop standards "I'm Sittin' Pretty In A Pretty Little City," "Luck Be A Lady Tonight" and "Play That Barbershop Chord." This is entertainment, how Barbershop is done by one of the world's finest.

Songlist: Pick Yourself Up, Somethin' About Ya, A Blossom Fell, Vict'ry Road, Down By The Old Mill Steam, I'm Sittin' Pretty In A Pretty Little City, More I Cannot Wish You, Luck Be A Lady Tonight, Hopelessly In Love, I Fall In Love With You Everyday, Play That Barbershop Chord, Sabre Dance, Gold

Voices of Ascension : Can't Help Singing : 1 CD : Dennis Keene : 3224

Voices of Ascension : Can't Help Singing

The voices of Ascension sing new choral arrangements of favorite Kern songs - in styles ranging from swinging Browdway (I Won't Dance; Can't Help Singing) to a timeless classical tone (All The Things You Are; Smoke Gets in Your Eyes). Dennis Keene's talented singers are accompanied variously by orchestra, harp, and string quartet, leading to some surprising moments such as a solo oboe emerging from the orchestra in a poignant Long Ago and Far Away. There is also the beautiful a cappella singing listeners have come to expect from Voices of Ascension - as in the rich 8-part version of All The Things You Are.

Songlist: Can't Forget You, All The Tings You Are, I Won't Dance, Don't Ever Leave Me, Pick Yourself Up, Make Believe, Why Was I Born Born, A Fine Romance, Can't Help Singing, They Didn't Believe Me, The Song Is You, Long Ago And Far Away, I'm Old Fashioned, You Couldn't Be Cuter, The Way You Look Tonight, Ol' Man River, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Yesterdays, Don't Ever Leave Me

VoicesIowa : You Must Believe in Spring : 1 CD : Phil Mattson

VoicesIowa : You Must Believe in Spring    Out of Print

The Southwestern Community College has a tradition of turning out excellent harmony singers, under the direction of the highly-respected director Phil Mattson. The six-piece mixed "Voices Iowa" is a fine example. "Pick Yourself Up" is a dizzying rendition of the Kern/Fields classic, a daring flight into the upper registers. Bach's "Largo" yields willingly to a fine scat treatment; "Come Sunday" has the same heartbreakingly beautiful arrangement as that of the Real Group, but the tone qualities of the voices are quite distinct to Voices Iowa. "What A Wonderful World" comes alive, the notes a joyous burst of sunshine on a spring morning.

Songlist: What A Wonderful World, Pick Yourself Up, Largo, Revoici Venir Du Printemps, Come Sunday, Lo How A Rose E're Blooming, Love is Here to Stay, Music For Lovers, More I Cannot Wish You, And So It Goes, Look for the Silver Lining, You Must Believe in Spring
