Tony Pastor gives his usual big-grin-while-passing-a-kidney-stone routine on the lyrics.
We musickers call that "putting on the dance belt" - singing above your range.
But I think that was Tony's range - he just didn't have a trained voice.

Tony sings and Artie plays When Winter Comes in 1939.

Michael Buble's Crazy Love. I just discovered Michael Buble this year. Really like his voice and how he's re-interpreted some of the classic songs.

...but then got youtube ADD and ended up finding this. I don't envy their intonation endeavors.

eerie coincidence?

I'm listening to Radio Dismuke. In between selections I hear a vintage station break.
NBC identifies with the chimes. KFI, Los Angeles, follows with a time check: "13 seconds before 9."

Just for something to do, I look at my watch. 13 seconds before 10. Neat.

Making a fast transfer of shortwave recordings of BBC news reports from September 3, 1939 -- including the speech by King George VI -- for broadcast over our pre-show sound system during our upcoming showings of "The King's Speech." His Majesty is followed by announcements that all cinemas and places of public amusement will be closed until further notice, which will hopefully not cause our audience to stampede.

Love them both!!!! I have the Hylton recording and .... what can one say about Sam Browne that it hasn't been said yet! Amazing! :eusa_clap

This is the first time I hear Debroy Somers Band.... I fell in love with that first song and will burn a CD ASAP!


Thank you so very much V.C. :D:D :D

What a coincidence. I'm listening to Tim Conway, Jr. on KFI right now. :)

At one time KFI was the NBC Red Network affiliate in Los Angeles. The Blue Network station was KECA, both of which were owned by West Coast broadcasting pioneer Earl C. Anthony. KECA was later spun off and became the present day KABC. One of the announcers at KFI in the 1930s was future NBC anchorman Chet Huntley.

I've always loved the British dance bands from the 1920s and '30s. They really gave the songs a certain touch of class. One recording I'm looking for is The Kerb Step by, I believe, Sam Lewis and his Orchestra. The Kerb Step was also known apparently as "The Daily Express Song"

And here's Sam Browne with Elsie Carlisle...

Ambrose and his Orchestra -- I'm Gonna Wash My Hands Of You (1934)
Decca F-5318

To be honest I don't like that so much... :confused: I'm choosy, it has to be only so and so LOL ... it has to have that certain thing( for me of course)

Another British dance band who had that touch of class we were talking about was Ambrose, I have many versions of this beautiful song "Moaning For You" :)

This is great! Never heard about him.

In fact, I only hearded bass sax with Boyd Reaburn. A beautiful tone!

Adrian Rollini, patron saint of the bass saxophone, and some of his fellow swing luminaries (Bunny, Benny, Big T and, IIRC, Krupa) in 1934 discings of Riverboat Shuffle and Davenport Blues.

More Roly at redhotjazz.com, who insists his recordings have a "general lack of excitement or beauty." So does a pork chop supper, but it's mighty satisfying, and so are they.

Boyd was a good player but strictly a "paper" man - not a jazz soloist. He also split his time with a lot of reed doubles, such as English horn. I can't think of a Raeburn chart that out-and-out featured bass sax.

It was an uncomfortable fit with the bop-influenced sound anyway, as you'll know if you've ever heard Charlie Ventura play it. (Bugle Call Rag, 1951)
