A wonderful mix of sounds.
on 21 December 2009
This is a CD that grows on you. It's a rich mix of nostalgic old songs such as Josephine Baker's 'Breezing Along with the Breeze' and Jean Sablon singing 'J'attendrai, contrasted with the lively 'Gotta Get Up' (Harry Nilsson) and Richard Anthony's bizarre version of 'Itsy Bitsy Petit Bikini'.
For me there are two wonderful highlights: Patti Page singing 'Old Cape Cod' and Marc Streitenfeld's original film score which is delightfully textured, melodic and inventive. It's all good stuff to drive to.
