I have restored several 'Satch' tunes from his classic albums '...Plays Fats' and '...Plays WC Handy'
hope you enjoy the upbeat traks from 'Swing n Dance with Sinatra', a rare Columbia 1950 album
with arrangements by George Siravo
Apr-07: several 'Ivie Anderson' traks added - you may feel that these are only average vocals, but listen
to the great Ellington band behind her!

Do you Listeners prefer the Vocals?! then please embrace
new albums like Natalie Cole's 'Still Unforgettable'!
there's only so much 'classic' vocal in the vault! (--:

Sep-07: Inserted nice vocals from a good Charlie Spivak band -- I will
add more fine traks from these 'secondary' orchestras, as they become
available digitally. However, the 'heart n soul' of Crooners remains Holiday,
Sinatra, Crosby, Armstrong and Fitzgerald, plus the wonderful female singers of the BigBands.

Dec-09: added several traks by Dean Martin from the 'Legend' CD - is this Playlist cooking...!
Your Ad-Free membership, purchased via this site, helps subsidize this great music - my thanks..! -canuck
