Stormy Weather

Music by Harold Arlen

Ethel Waters first sang it at The Cotton Club night club in Harlem in 1933 and recorded it that year, and in the same year it was sung in London by Elisabeth Welch and recorded by Frances Langford. Also 1933, for the first time in history the entire floor revue from Harlem's Cotton Club went on tour, playing theatres in principal cities. The revue was originally called The Cotton Club Parade of 1933 but for the road tour it was changed to the Stormy Weather Revue and as the name implies, the show contained the hit song "Stormy Weather" which was sung by Adelaide Hall.

The song has since been performed by artists as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Dinah Washington, Clodagh Rodgers, and Reigning Sound and most famously by Lena Horne and Billie Holiday. Leo Reisman's orchestra version had the biggest hit on records (with Arlen himself as vocalist), although Ethel Waters's recorded version also sold well.[citation needed] "Stormy Weather" was featured in the 1943 movie of the same name.

The song tells of disappointment, as the lyrics, "Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky", show someone pining for her man to return. The weather is a metaphor for the feelings of the singer: "stormy weather since my man and I ain't together, keeps raining all the time."

The original handwritten lyrics, along with a painting by Ted Koehler, were featured on the (US) Antiques Roadshow on January 24, 2011, where they were appraised for between $50,000 and $100,000. The lyrics show a number of crossings out and corrections.[2]

Ethel Waters's recording of the song in 1933 was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2003, and the Library of Congress honored the song by adding it to the National Recording Registry in 2004. Also in 2004, Horne's version finished at number 30 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

Blue Stars : Rhapsody in Harmony : 00  1 CD : 3030

The Blue Stars recorded and performed from the mid-1970s to their excellent a cappella recordings for the Clifton label in the early 90s. This CD contains the 16 cuts from the United in Group Harmony Association Award-winning 1991 release "Blue Velvet," plus 9 previously unreleased cuts recorded from 1994 to 1996. The group's covers concentrate on legendary groups and classic 50s versions. This is exuberant, street-corner doo-wop and lots of it, heavy on the harmony! There's a list of the 25 songs in the liner notes, followed by the name of the group that recorded it, the label, the year and the member of the Stars who's singing lead. From relatively unknown hits like the Marcels' "Sweet Was The Wine," the Five Keys' "Deep In My Heart" and the 4 Vagabonds' "Rosy the Riveter" to better known hits like the Clovers' "Blue Velvet" and the Chords' "Sh-Boom," this is all authentic, soulful stuff. The Stars shine on "Rhapsody!"

DC Finest aka Doo Wop Cops : Arresting Sounds

Five active and retired law enforcement officers from Washington D.C. are the Doo Wop Cops. They are one of those groups who have serious careers and have had to put aside the early musical training each member had while growing up. They found one another in 1985 and the music just wouldn't be denied. They've performed with the Persuasions, Chuck Berry, The Drifters, Stevie Wonder and many more. We'll not pay attention to the numerous Presidential performances but will mentioned that they were picked by Gen. Colin Powell out of the hundreds of offers to perform at his retirement. They are great singers. There is a joyous over the top feeling to the music of these men who generally use their performances to inspire young people in their schools and neighborhoods. Let us tell you, if they weren't such devoted public servants we'd advise them to quit their day jobs in a second!

Songlist: Sh-Boom, Oh What A Night, Run Red Run, Heart & Soul, Stormy Weather, Can I, Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go, For Your Precious Love, Duke Of Earl, Buffalo Soldier, False Alarm, I'm On The Outside (Looking In), Never Let Me Go, Little Darlin, Island Of Love, At My Front Door

Frommermann : Music of the Comedian Harmonists : 00 SACD : 723385268079 : CCS SA 26807

Frommermann : Music of the Comedian Harmonists

he Dutch group Frommermann is named after Harry Frommermann, who in 1927 founded the Comedian Harmonists. This German ensemble, comprised of five singers and a pianist, was in the late twenties and early thirties of the last century a huge sensation. The Comedian Harmonists were namely renowned for their broad variety of vocal styles and the fine sense of comedy with which they performed close harmony music. Within a short period they became international celebrities with concerts in Europe and the United States. In 1935 the Comedian Harmonists were forced by the Nazis to disband, silencing this ensemble for eternity. Around Christmas 2004, at the request of the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam, Marcel Reijans selected a group of fellow singers and a pianist who shared his love for the music of the Comedian Harmonists. With this group of men, each busy with national and international careers, he made Broken Silence, a tribute to the Comedian Harmonists. With this theater program Frommermann broke the silence that was imposed on the Comedian Harmonists and their music gained a voice again in the Netherlands. The three concerts in the 2005 Grachtenfestival were a great success. The numerous positive reactions from the public and press lead immediately to an invitation to perform at the annual Koninginneconcert (Queens Concert) at the Noordeinde Palace in The Hague. This concert, which was attended by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix, the royal family and many esteemed guests, was also received with much acclaim. The NPS (Netherlands Public Broadcasting Service) made a documentary and registration of the concert, which was broadcasted nationwide on Koninginnedag (Queens Day) 2006

Songlist: Veronika, Der Lenz Ist Da, Eine Kleine Fruhlingsweise, Overture To Il Barbiere Di Siviglia, Mein Kleiner Gruner Kaktus, Stormy Weather, Ali Baba, In Einem Kuhlen Grunde, Wenn Ich Vergnugt Bin, Wir Sind von Kopf Bis Fub Auf Liebe Eingestellt, Schone Isabella Aus Kastilien, Morgen Mub Ich Fort von Hier, Wochenend Und Sonnenschein, Night and Day, When Yumba Plays the Rhumba On the Tuba, Kannst Du Pfeifen Johanna?, Guter Mond Du Gehst So Stille, Holzhackerlied, Gitarren Spielt Auf, Leb' Wohl, Gute Reise

Hudson Shad : Spawn Song : 00  1 CD

Hudson Shad : Spawn Song

Hudson Shad is an American group that was inspired by the German Comedian Harmonists, who were formed in Berlin, 1927. The First World War over, the cabaret tradition flourishes and the city is a locus of developing talent. The Comedian Harmonists performs until 1935, when, due to persecution of the three Jewish members under the Nazi Party, they are forced to disband. Hudson Shad's poignant "Liebeslied," sung in German, is all that much more evocative, its sentiment in horrible contrast to the terrible events to follow. The traditional "Callin' My Children Home" showcases the group's close harmonies and tight blend, "My Little Green Cactus" is a naughty paean to something other than succulents, if we know anything at all!

Songlist: Wie War's Mal Mit Lissaben?, Callin' My Children Home, My Little Green Cactus, Stormy Weather, Whispering, Liebesleid, Night and Day, Camp Meeting, Creole Love Call, Baby, Wedding Of The Painted Doll, Tea For Two, A Little Spring Melody, Uncle Bumba, Auf Wiederseh'n

Hudson Shad : Hooked Again : 00  1 CD

Hudson Shad : Hooked Again

The canon of the Comedian Harmonists is recreated by the American Hudson Shad, who on this entertaining and historically compelling CD sing both in English and German, to capture the essence of their inspiration. Accompanied by piano, the Harmonists sound is one part jazz and one part music hall, as on Ellington's "It Don't Mean A Thing," where vocal bass and piano pump out a furious twenties rhythm, augmented by scat and and a vigorous horn solo. "Whistle While You Work" is a masterpiece of vocal orchestration, not to mention whistling, and when the Shad assume the personas of the Dwarfs-well, you just have to buy this record to hear it! The traditional "Die Dorfmusik" has a racuous yodeling motif over a swaying 3/4.

Songlist: Wochenend Und Sonnenschein, (Happy Days Are Here Again), Blue River, Mein Kleiner Gruner Kaktus, Four Leaf Clover, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), Veronika, Der Lenz Ist Da, Liebesleid, Whistle While You Work, I Had A Dream, Die Dorfmusik, Stormy Weather, Georgia, Guitarren Spielt Auf, Standchen, Gloriana, Der Alte Cowboy (The Last Round-up)

King's Singers : A Tribute To The Comedian Harmonists : 00  1 CD

King's Singers : A Tribute To The Comedian Harmonists

How appropriate that the King's Singers would pay tribute to the seminal pre-world War II German group who had such an influence on the development of a cappella. The Harmonists, who were ultimately forced to disband by the Nazi government, were a six-member ensemble (five voices and a pianist) who were at the vanguard of the cabaret vogue of pre-war Berlin. Their set comprised jazz standards, German lied, classical pieces and a hearty portion of silliness ("My Little Green Cactus," "Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier." ). The British King's Singers have lovingly selected sixteen songs from the Harmonists' repetoire, which they in turn arranged for themselves, resulting in a happy marriage of both. "Overture from 'Il Barbiere Di Siviglia'" is a clue to the inspiration of the Swingle Singers; "Tea for Two" is nothing like the original, but is slowed to ballad tempo, with a host of jazzy chord voicings-a sublime rendition!

Songlist: Veronika, der Lenz its da, Liebling, Mein Herz Lsst Dich Grossen, Night and Day, Mein Kleiner Groner Kaktus, Creole Love Call, Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier, Stormy Weather, Das ist die Liebe der Matrosen, Ouvet re zu/Overture from the Barber of Seville, Wenn der Wind Weht Uber das Meer, Flight of the Bumblebee, The Donkey Serenade, Gitarren Spielt Auf, Tea For Two, Du armes girl vom Chor, Wochenhund und Sonnenschein

King's Singers : Greatest Hits : 00  2 CDs : EMC14587.2

King's Singers : Greatest Hits

Considering the longevity of the King's Singers' career (which began in the 1960s with performances of the Schola Cantorum Pro Musica Profana, or, as they were more casually known, the Cam River Boys), it's only natural that a greatest-hits album would require two discs, each crammed full of arrangements of popular songs and vocal pieces from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Whether performing infectious versions of songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, smooth standards by Cole Porter and Harold Arlen, sublime motets by Adrian Willaert and Orlande de Lassus, or lush fin de siecle classics by Gabriel Faure and Edward Elgar, the King's Singers always deliver entertainment first and foremost, and make their virtuosic repertoire fully accessible to audiences. Of course, their singing varies from classically polished formality to a more relaxed, even humorous glee club delivery. Fans who appreciate their amazing sound and enjoy their lively manner will appreciate this generous retrospective, which brings together recordings made between 1974 and 1990. 48 songs in all.

Songlist: Penny Lane, Help!, Yesterday, Elanor Rigby, Bridge Over Troubled Water, The Sound Of Silence, You Are the New Day, Three Times a Lady, The Rhythm of Life, Here Comes The Sun, Barbara Allen, Early One Morning, She Moved Through the Fair, Bugeilo'r Gwenith Gwyn, Londonderry Air, O My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, The Little Drummer Boy, Ding Dong!

The Marcels : Summertime : 00  1 CD : 7030

The Marcels : Summertime

Beginning with this mixed (three black & two white) group's initial success with 'Blue Moon,' which was #1 on the Pop and R&B charts in 1961 (displacing none other than Elvis), the Marcels carved out an unmistakeable niche in the annals of pop history. It is their 'bomp baba bomp...da dang da dang, da ding a dong ding' bass intro, heard on 'Zoom,' 'That Lucky Old Sun' and others that is forever in the ear of every doo-wop audience, casual or otherwise. 'Blue Moon' is not on this CD, but pretty much of the rest of the Marcels recorded output is; like many other groups, personnel departed more consistently than they remained, so some cuts are stronger than others. Signature songs such as 'Summertime,' 'Over The Rainbow,' 'Sunday Kind Of Love' and 'I Put The Bomp' display a flair and musicality a cut above the average and are terrific R & B tinged doo-wop.

Songlist: Zoom, A Sunday Kind of Love, Teeter Totter Love, Over The Rainbow, I Could Have Danced All Night, Summertime, Where There's A Will, Why Do You Have To Go, I Put The Bomp, That Lucky Old Sun, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind, Spanish Harlem, Save The Last Dance For Me, I'll Be Forever Loving You, Two People In The World, Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart, Got A Job, Stormy Weather, When I'm With You, For Your Precious Love, That Lucky Old Sun, Close Your Eyes, Soul Dinner, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind

Masterpiece : Nice and Easy

Rob, Patrick, Alan and Brett have all enjoyed great success with other Barbershop groups. Tenor Rob Menaker graduated from the UCLA Men's Glee Club to a number of groups, culminating in a 1996 International Championship with Nightlife. He also won 6 chorus championships with The Masters of Harmony. Lead Patrick Haedtler sang with 2007 International Chorus Champs The Westminster Chorus, and with 2009 International semifinalists The Crush. Baritone Alan Gordon also sang with the Masters, which led to his joining Gotcha!, 2004 Quartet Champions. Bass Brett Littlefield anchored Nightlife's 1996 Championship with Rob, and sang with the Masters for 20 years. Brett and Rob are among the few men who have won a Barbershop Quartet and Chorus Championship on the same day! Now singing together as Masterpiece, the new group attracted a lot of attention by placing fourth at this year's Portland Convention, and they celebrated by releasing their debut album, "Nice & Easy." Every one of these 12 songs, including favorites "Nice & Easy," Blood, Sweat & Tears' "Hi-De-Ho," "Deed I Do," "Stormy Weather," "San Fernando Valley," "Tennessee Waltz," "Sweet Pea," "Joyfully I'll Travel On" and "At the Crossroads;" is masterful, if you will--funny, poignant, nostalgic, powerful and filled with unbelievable ringing chords and harmonies. It adds up to great entertainment-don't miss this one!

OC Times : Let's Fly

Tenor Shawn York, lead Sean Devine (of the Alley Cats), baritone Patrick Claypool and bass Corey Hunt, all talented young men from Orange County, CA, proved with their 2nd place medal at the recent SPEBSQSA competitions in Denver that a far-from-quiet young revolution is happening in the Barbershop world. The quartet, also members of Chorus Gold medal-winners (and youngest-ever choral entrants) Westminster Chorus, rose from 46th place to 18th in 2004, to 5th place in 2005, and in 2007 second only to supergroup Max Q. "Let's Fly" is 15 innovatively-arranged (by group arranger Aaron Dale), flawlessly performed winners, from OC standards "Good Luck Charm," "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," "Honey (Open That Door)/Hey Good Lookin' Medley," "Love Me," and "Come Fly with Me," to new winners "Teddy Bear," "Drivin' Me Crazy," "So Much in Love," a brilliant "Stormy Weather," "Anytime at All," "You're 16, You're Beautiful, and You're Mine" and the last cut, "Save the Last Dance For Me/Sway Medley," this collection impresses at every turn. Audiences call them "fresh," "cutting edge," "pushing the envelope"-but listen to "Let's Fly" for yourself, hear the fast-rising future of Barbershop, and come up with your own adjectives!

Orphei Drangar : Caprices with OD Vol 3

Not only is Orphei Drangar one of the oldest and best men's choirs in the world, but it is a true gathering of individualists, almost all of whom have amde of will make their mark in professions other than music. Given this urge to express themselves as individuals, their popular pre-CHristmas concerts, known locally as "caprices," are not just a collective letting down of hair," but a much-appreciated opportunity for displaying all sorts of individual talents not usually required of choristers -- whether this be writing musical sketches, singing in some hitherto undiscovered register, representing half of a theatrical horse and etceteras. Add to this Eric Ericson, the world's greatest choral conductor -- who looked after Orphei Drangar for forty years because he enjoyed them so much -- and the mixture is potent, not to say explosive. Like all the greatest musicians Eric Ericson has that well-developed sense of humor that comes from recognizing that one has been entrusted with a very rare gift. Together, Eric Ericson and Orphei Drangar let their hair down in grand style. Indeed they elevate the very concept of "letting one's hair down" into something like an art form.

Songlist: Hor I Orphei Drangar / Kalinka, Pa faltet stod en liten bjork, Balladen om Eugen Cork, Livet ar ett helvete, Halsa dom dar hemma, Fragancia, Julgranen, Nu har jag fatt den jag vill ha, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Stormy Weather, True Love, Norgehistoria, Engelska flottan, Kivikspolka, Poor Lonesome Cowboy, Feeling Too Good Blues, Hark, Ye Sons if Orpheus, Maybe Itęs Because I'm a Londoner, Jag ser pa dina ogon / 5000 man, Viljasangen, Lat oss liksom svalorna, Operetten ar dod

Saturday Evening Post : 1st Edition

Though only formed in 1998, the SEP, as they are known, are Rocky Mountain District Champions. With an obvious allegiance and love for true barbershop form, songs such as "Let's Get Away From It All," "Tonight, Tonight" and "Heart And Soul," though not originally conceived as quartet material, have lost all trace of swing and Broadway, and are zinging examples of vertical harmony. The tag of "Stormy Weather," to name just one, shows the Post staking its territory without equivocation, cleverly invoking the blues feel and sealing the deal with a tenor pedal tone over the top. "The Clown Medley" and "Gospel Medley" invoke the nostalgia of turn-of-century Americana.

Songlist: Tonight, Tonight, Let's Get Away From It All, Stormy Weather, Sweet Lorraine, Let The Rest Of The World Go By, Running' Wild, Makin Whoopie, Clown Medley, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Little White Cloud That Cried, Gospel Medley, Heart and Soul, Tin Roof Blues, My Cup Runneth Over With Love, Drinkin' Gourd, Star Spangled Banner
