Frank Sinatra recorded the song for Capitol from October 17, , to January 16, His version was included on Songs for Swingin' Lovers! The group's version peaked at number forty-three on the Billboard pop singles chart and at number six on the Adult Contemporary.
Almost two decades later, the song was partially translated into Mandarin for the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom , presumably with some assistance from John Williams , who arranged the film score.
The song is performed with a number of synchronized dancers in a large cabaret number set in a Shanghai night club circa The song is included on the original film soundtrack.
There have been other cast recordings. She performed the mashup during the season three episode " The Purple Piano Project " that was broadcast on September 20, The single peaked at No. With Marion Evans, jazz trumpeter Brian Newman , a long-time friend and colleague of Gaga, played on the album. Tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano and flautist Paul Horn performed.
She thought "Anything Goes" was a funny track with a "real sexy, powerful vibe to it, and it's just because we're having fun singing it. Gaga's voice, when stripped of its bells and whistles, showcases a timelessness that lends itself well to the genre. Howard Reich of Chicago Tribune gave a positive review, saying found Gaga to be in "good voice" and Bennett in "classic form". It also charted at number on the sales chart of the Official Charts Company.
The song was Bennett's 15th entry on the Jazz Digital Songs chart, and his third number-one single. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Streamline Interscope Columbia. Retrieved November 20, Cambridge University Press.
Waits is truly a unique musician with one of the oddest collection of vocal stylings in recorded history I would think. His trademark low, raspy, growly, groaning singing has likely made more than a few listeners over the years a bit unsettled. Waits has been on the scene for more than four decades now and is one hell of a songwriter as evidenced by this recent album which is another offering of saloon songs, rocking and raging blues, and other stuff that defies categorization.
He plays a mean guitar on all of the songs and does piano and other instruments on various songs too. Actually it's challenging to begin to describe his voice in any way other than indirectly. You just have to listen to it yourself. Track 5. Face to the Highway, is wistful and mournful. And with that the first six songs form a truly classic first "side" of an album.
The remaining seven songs are good too but 1 to 6 are jaw-dropping good stuff. Labels: eclectic , rock , tom waits. Titling an Ella Fitzgerald album with the word "intimate" is practically redundant as just about everything she recorded was intimate simply because it was her singing. A master vocalist whose song interpretations and phrasing are legendary, influential and instantly recognizable she makes it all sound as effortless as exhaling or talking.
Frank Sinatra credited her for his own well-developed sense of vocal phrasing. This reissue of a album is filled with standards for which she set the, well, standard. Her expert rendition of "Misty" makes me wonder if it wasn't too good so that it led to that old Clint Eastwood movie, Play Misty for Me, in which he plays a radio DJ who is stalked by a crazed female fan who keeps demanding to hear the song.
Technically the CD version of this album sounds perfect. The clarity of sound is superb and helps create the intimacy. Much of this is due to all of these songs consisting of simply Ella's voice and subtle, thoughtful piano accompaniment by Paul Smith. And really, isn't that all that is needed? Labels: ella fitzgerald , jazz. Island, Yes, this album was reviewed earlier this week.
However, this is a different, later edition -- a remaster of the original album plus a bonus disc of alternate versions, different mixes, a couple instrumentals, and live performances of songs from that timeframe, both from the album as well as a few singles released prior to the debut '80 album in and earlier in The bonus disc may be of interest only to longtime, serious U2 fans, particularly for both studio and live versions of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" and "Boy-Girl" both live versions from a London gig in September along with "Another Day" and a wild-sounding and post-punk new wavish live version of "Cartoon World" from a concert in Dublin performed in February Clearly the lads were in that liminal, or in-between, space from boyhood to manhood, as well as experimenting with musical sounds and styles early in their development as a band.
Details: Cecilia Bartoli b. Decca, Mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli started on the road to superstardom in the late s when she was in her early 20s. The daughter of two professional singers, and graduate of the historic Academy of Santa Cecilia in her native Rome, Bartoli began by singing roles in Mozart and Rossini operas before later moving on to a wide range of projects including Baroque research and revivals, and her current successful leadership and management of an annual music festival in Salzburg, Austria.
This album of Mozart arias shows off Bartoli early in her career in her mids. If Mozart were alive to hear Bartoli sing these arias, I have to believe he would be pleased. As with anything by Mozart, "it's all good" as the saying goes. Having said that, the real gems on this album are "Non so piu," "Alma grande e nobil core," "Parto, parto," and "Ch'io mi scordi di te?
Bartoli's voice here is clear and clean, displaying amazing vocal technique while also being pleasing to listen to. In addition to her academy training, one of her longtime primary vocal teachers was her own mother. Her parents obviously made a wise choice when they named their daughter Cecilia, after the patron saint of music.
Labels: bartoli , classical. Monday, January 26, Diana Krall: Wallflower. Details: Diana Krall b. This'll be the first of quite a few Diana Krall album blogs over the next year, but this one is rather unusual. Normally Krall records albums of jazz, standards, bossa nova, and the like. Then again, torch singer Julie London -- to whom Diana Krall has sometimes been compared vocally -- was known for cranking out albums every year in the s containing remakes of contemporary pop songs, so this isn't without precedent.
Plus, established as a jazz superstar since the mids, Krall can pretty much do whatever she wants now and people will buy her albums.
On this new album just out this year, she offers 12 remakes of mostly s mellow ballads, produced by David Foster. Clearly the s were an influential decade in Krall's youth and her interpretations here are not run-of-the-mill but in several instances quite thoughtful and fresh-sounding. Her rendition of California Dreamin' kicks things off and she does a great job with the song, slowing it down and putting some real aching in the vocals. The second track, I think, is the standout on the entire album.
Her version of Desperado is brilliant -- she does an excellent job with a kind of old worn-out in my opinion song and brings a new, fresh perspective to it for the listener. I was really surprised by this one.
Another song she does a nice job with is I'm Not in Love, the song that made 10cc famous. In particular on the outro she does some interesting stuff with the piano and the producer with other instruments in place of the original 10cc outro.
There are a couple duets including one with Michael Buble' and another with Bryan Adams. While I think her wheelhouse is jazz standards, her walk down Mellow Memory Lane in this new album is good stuff with several really outstanding moments. Labels: diana krall , pop. Sunday, January 25, Chants for Life. Director: Joseph Schabasser.
Excelsior, In such an acoustical environment it was perfect. Chant has a healing effect and immediately causes a hush in the listener. The nearly two dozen chants on this hour-plus disc are designated for holy days including Easter and Christmas and include introits, offertories, communions and alleluias.
The sound always conjures for me images of monks in robes walking single file in an interior courtyard in a monastery, along a long corridor between and beneath columns and arches, at dusk or dawn. Labels: gregorian chant , sacred. Saturday, January 24, 9: U2: Boy. Four working-class high school boys answer a bulletin board notice seeking bandmates and meet after school in the kitchen of the notewriter. Boy is their debut album and was recorded in and released later that year when the guys were about 19 or 20 years old.
All of the material is their own. It is a thematically and musically consistent album almost from start to finish, with maybe 1 or 2 clunkers while the rest is enjoyable to listen to. The album has a natural flow and has the foundation of their trademark sound which they developed throughout the rest of the s. A bit dated in spots but still it is fun to listen again to their debut album and even with all that was to come they sound good from the outset, raring to go out into the world.
Total time 3 discs : It is Epic Friday! The Canadian pianist Glenn Gould announced himself to the world with his debut recording of J. Bach's Goldberg Variations which were first published in and originally played on harpsichord as the piano was not widely available at the time.
Recorded in four days in New York City in June , when Gould was just 22 years old, the album was released shortly after New Year's Day to great acclaim. Both the musician and the formerly obscure musical composition he recorded became international sensations virtually overnight. The piece consists of a lyrical aria theme and 30 variations thereof and finally the main aria theme again.
In each part of this work -- no matter how intricate, complex, simple, fast or slow -- Gould makes the piano practically sing. Over the years I have heard stories of countless people who claim that this recording had a miraculous effect in their lives when they first heard it, even some folks saying it saved them from despair and hopelessness.
Almost still a kid at age 22, Gould put this out as his first offering to the world. Here I am! Membership has its privileges. Learn more.

Ricardo Grilli has a creative jones not shackled by the conventional form and function of improvisational music. Odd meters, unusual voicing and themes all come full circle and just part of a free association approach used in his compositions and with amazingly fresh results.
Grilli played with the word and the free association narrative of something that returns to itself with the end result a spacious ballad of nuanced depth and character. Everest Digest. For Lovers.
