Format: Audio CD
Vince Giordano has devoted his life to the pursuit of the jazz and big band music of the twenties and thirties. His interest was kindled at the age of five by a cache of 78s in granny's attic, and by the age of fifteen he was a working musician. His passion has developed in several directions, including collecting early sheet music and extant arrangements, transcribing other arrangements from shellac recordings, and recreating these sonic masterpieces through the medium of his New York based 11-piece Nighthawks Orchestra.

Martin Scorsese has become increasingly interested in the creation of what used to be known as period films, the period in question being the early part of the twentieth century. He and Vince have worked together in the past, most notably on the film "The Aviator", but the series "Boardwalk Empire" reaches new heights, as witness this first volume of soundtrack music. It kicks off with the Original Dixieland Jazz Band's warhorse "Livery Stable Blues", replete with the whinnying effects which so startled listeners in 1917.

The tracklist credits favour the vocalists, but all but one of the accompaniments is provided by Vince's orchestra, the exception being the haunting Irish ballad Carrickfergus. I particularly enjoyed Regina Spektor's vocal on "My Man" which may sound syncopated by comparison with thirties recordings, but which accurately reflects its origins as a French vaudeville number. Kathy Brier gives a barnstorming rendition of Sophie Tucker's theme song "Some of these Days", and Leon Redbone's laidback approach to "The Sheik of Araby" is a delight.

I just love this album and volume 2 too. When I watched the series I couldn't figure out how the fantastic accompanying music was so clear and well recorded. Now I realise that it is a set of modern recordings of old songs sung by a selection of contemporary vocalists (some of whom are quite famous) all mostly singing with Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks to recreate that 1920/30s sassiness. I've noticed that half the Wainwright clan are on the albums, Loudon, Rufus, and Martha, but that's fine as I like them all. Good old Leon Redbone is featured too. All his albums sound like this anyway.These albums are a joy for the lug'oles. I couldn't chose one over the other so I had to get both albums. Why is it that when Martin Scorsese is involved with projects you get everything at a much higher, detailed, quality ? Please can we have some more.

Wonderfully evocative music, written as " throw away, short life" but still able to bring much pleasure almost a hundred years later.
Makes you realise what terrible music the young listen to today which certainly will not be around in another hundred years.
Very sad to hear that the next season of Boardwalk will be the last.

Some interesting tracks. I particularly like the 'born, live a while and then die'. Pretty much sums up life!
