    You got me there by the tip of my heart...No other city in the World like Manhatten. And Bette and Rod did a fantastic job recreating the mood...

    Let's all meet at Carlyle for dinner!

    Modern artists remaking classics, eh? Well my favorite would have to be this one:


    The Brian Setzer Orchestra swingin' Beethoven and Bach. Ya' can't get more classic than that! lol

    :eek:fftopic: Lady Hadley,

    Excellente remarque! but I see her from a different perspective: first she was a bright woman, then a very talented artist...finally she married Sarko...;)

    Thank You, and have a great day.

    When you consider how often the great songs are covered, and how the vast majority were written by songwriters as opposed to the artists who covered them, it's tough to say there's only one definitive version of most songs. Each artist gives it an interpretation, and we will either like or dislike it according to one's own tastes.

    I enjoy many modern artists' interpretations of the "standards" (there's irony), both crooners and bands:

    Diana Krall
    Michael Bublé
    Bryan Ferry
    Harry Connick Jr
    Brian Setzer
    Colin James
    Johnny Favourite

    Couldn't agree more. It was my husband's and my first dance at our wedding. :)

  18. "I know how a lot of "Artistes" have jumped on the Nostalgia band wagon, "Yes Rod Stewart I'm looking at you" but really I do think Harry Connick Junior was one of the first contemporary stars to introduce Swing to a whole new generation in the 1990's?"

    No, however, I believe it takes just as much creativity to interpret as it does to write. In some regards more as the artist is working within the constraints of the piece s/he is interpreting.;)
