Beegie pays tribute to the music of her college years of 50 plus years ago. Her piano playing is well up in the mix and should please the many fans of her warm and wonderful instrumental jazz style with a rythmic swing. There are two pieces I am especially glad to have, Canadian Sunset and Old Cape Cod, which bring back delightful memories of holidays in those regions. Not perhaps a first purchase rather than one of her splendid albums which feature the 'Great American Songbook' such as Duke Ellington, this is nevertheless a welcome addition to an existing collection. Considered to be one of the finest piano players in the world, Beegie Adair has accompanied such legendary performers as Chet Atkins, Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash - and also worked with Lucille Ball, Dinah Shore, Mama Cass Elliott and Peggy Lee. Her playing puts me in a good mood at anytime of day or night.

They are, she says, my main guys. They're so tuned into the way I visualize music that its effortless to play with them.

Beegie Adair one of the best kept secrets around...but the word, or should we say music is getting out there --- if you haven't discovered Beegie Adair yet, you don't know what you've been missing --- About her music Adair says, "Falling in love with jazz is like falling in love with a person, except with jazz you never get over it." --- Once in a while a musician comes along with impeccable technique, deep understanding of the jazz repertoire, an innate tendency to swing and the rare ability to communicate the heart and soul of a tune to listeners. That musician is Beegie Adair.

This was the music we listened to when growing in St. Louis, Missouri, every station had them playing at the swimming pools, teen hops and on the home radios --- Those were the days my friends when things were simple and everyone was happy and carefree --- Beegie and the guys capture those times when we were young and just starting out in life --- Memories come back with baker's dozen tunes that we can once again enjoy.

2. BECAUSE OF YOU - [3:43] - (was written by Arthur Hammerstein and Dudley Wilkinson a recording by Tony Bennett recorded April 4, 1951 -- was the first major hit for him, reaching number one on the Billboard magazine charts and staying there for 10 weeks)

3. CANADIAN SUNSET - [3:42] - (written by Eddie Heywood with lyrics by Norman Gimbel. An instrumental version by Hugo Winterhalter and the writer Eddie Heywood reached #2 on the Billboard chart in 1956. A version sung by Andy Williams was also popular that year, reaching #7 on the Billboard chart)

4. MISTY - [3:25] - (written in 1954 by the pianist Erroll Garner. Originally composed as an instrumental following the traditional 32-bar format, the tune later had lyrics by Johnny Burke and became the signature song of Johnny Mathis, reaching #12 on the U.S. Pop Singles chart in 1959. It has been covered numerous times, perhaps most notably by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan (1959)

5. OLD CAPE COD - [2:59] - (written by Claire Rothrock, Milton Yakus, and Allan Jeffrey, and published in 1957. The recording by Patti Page was released by Mercury Records as catalog number 71101; flip side "Wondering." It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on June 3, 1957. On the Disk Jockey chart, it peaked at #3; on the Best Seller chart, at #8; on the composite chart of the top 100 songs)

6. STRANGER IN PARADISE - [3:58] - ( a popular song from the 1953 musical Kismet and is credited to Robert Wright and George Forrest. Like all the music in that show, the melody was based on music composed by Alexander Borodin, in this case, the "Gliding Dance of the Maidens," from the Polovetsian Dances. Richard Kiley and Doretta Morrow (Man of La Mancha and King and I) performed the song in the original cast of Kismet. Vic Damone and Ann Blyth performed the song in the 1955 film. The most popular was recorded 1954 by Tony Bennett)

7. NEVERTHELESS - [3:09] - (written by Harry Ruby with lyrics by Bert Kalmar, first published in 1931. The song was recorded by Bing Crosby and by Rudy Vallée in 1931, and was revisited in 1950 by The Mills Brothers)

8. HEY THERE - [4:01] - (From the musical play "The Pajama Game", written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. It was published in 1954. It was subsequently recorded by a number of artists.

11. TRYING - [3:29] - (written by Billy Vaughn published in 1958)

Stand up and take a bow Jack Jezzro (producer), Greg Howard (executive producer) --- recorded and mixed by Brandon Harkin at Wildwood Recording, Brentwood, Tennessee and mastered by Mike Haynes of 440 Digital, Nashville, TN --- after 13 tracks it does leave you wanting more --- and we know they'll be more down the road --- if you enjoyed this album, why do not try another new release "In A Sentimental Mood" (Green Hill 5563) featuring The Beegie Adair Trio --- relive the romantic songs of Duke Ellington with a smooth blend of instrumental jazz --- just the way we like it ... THE BEEGIE ADAIR TRIO!

Outstanding, talent abounds 2 Nov. 2009
By Art S - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this today. What a find! It is truly a joy to listen to accomplished musicians. Every composition here is spellbinding in its clarity and emotion. I'm hooked. I was concerned when listening to the samples that I would tire of the "sound" of a trio, but the intimacy and style is polished and sufficiently complex to keep one's ears tuned and enjoyment level high.

Beegie swings lightly 14 Oct. 2010
By Rocky Mountain Jazz Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just discovered Beegie Adair. Where have I been? Ms. Adair is a very listenable jazz pianist, with some pleasant surprises on this album. But first, what this album is not: If you are expecting the definitive jazz statement on some pop standards, this is not it. If you are expecting technical jazz pyrotechnics, a la Oscar Peterson, this isn't that, either. As others have noted about Ms. Adair, it would also be a mistake to dismiss this album as just some pleasant easy listening elevator music. That can happen pretty readily because this album is just so pleasant to listen to. However, beneath the pleasantness is some serious jazz playing. I liken Ms. Adair's piano-playing to Doris Day's singing. It's easy to dismiss Ms. Day's jazz chops because she made it sound just so smooth and effortless. Same with Ms. Adair.

The choices for this album, mostly 1950's pop and show tunes, may also lead the listener to think that it is just schlock, but it is most certainly not. In fact, Ms. Adair toys with us with the intro to a couple of them, playing a momentary "schlocky" intro, and then proceeding to make a swinging jazz statement with the rest of the tune. Oh, and about that "swinging lightly" part. This album does that in spades, thanks to Ms. Adair and a very supportive rhythm section. In fact, this album can be described with a word not often used these days--"danceable." You will want to gather up your significant-other and head for the dance floor with this one. "Sensually swinging" probably is the best term.

Finally, a word about a couple of specific tunes: One of my '50's favorites is here, "Hey There." Ms. Adair starts this one out with the ending few bars, played "straight," then delves into the tune from the beginning, with a very danceable rhythm, nice improvisations, beautiful chording, and a tight rhytm section throughout--a refreshing treatment. Another is "So Rare." This tune was Jimmy Dorsey's last attempt at a "pop hit"--coming after big bands had already severely declined in popularity. By most jazz standards, "So Rare" was very "commercial" and schlocky, and there was pretty widespread thinking that Dorsey thought it was, too. Nonetheless, it became one of the few big band commercial successes in the 1950's. As Dorsey played it, I never really liked it because of its "commercial" bent. So, when I started to listen to Adair's version, I was not expecting much. Sure enough, she starts it out very "straight," seemingly not veering from the commercial "line." But then, as she plays, you realize that she is taking it a different direction, making a very pleasant and entertaining jazz excursion, once again swinging with that rhythm section, nice chording, surprising us once again.

This is a versatile album. It can be played at the cocktail party for a pleasant background and not many people may notice how "jazzy" it really is. You can play it for a jazz aficianado and watch them light up and say, "Hey, check that out." Or, you can use it for a romantic evening with that special person. It's all good.

PS--Check out Adair's other albums. More "chestnuts" to be found there.
Go Back to High School with Beegie Adair 17 Sept. 2009
By Chuck the Moderator - Published on Amazon.com
I discovered Beegie two years ago on a search for jazz Christmas music. The first notes I heard her play convinced me, she is the greatest. Her new album 'Moment's to Remember' is my music being a fifties high school graduate. Her renditions of that decade's best songs are on the money, timeless, yet right now. My all time favorite melody 'Misty' is included here and she makes it her own. The album is a bit shorter than previous releases of hers, but the quality of the performances makes up for that shortcoming. I cannot get enough Beegie Adair and now own 7 of her actual CD's. You won't be sorry buying this wonderful album.
