4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy and romantic, 18 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Band Played On (Audio CD)
If you like your Dance Band Music played in a more mellow, dreamy and romantic style, then you will probably enjoy this. Guy Lombardo, who called his music "The Sweetest Music this Side of Heaven", (an expression and style which was subsequently copied by Maurice Winnick here in the UK ) enjoyed a lot of success with this style, created by using gentle saxes at the forefront of the band. The music is very laid back and is great for relaxing with late at night, perhaps with a glass of wine !
One tends to think of the Dance Band Era as being very much the music of the 30's (Swing taking over in the 40's) - and with that in mind, I feel that this CD should have perhaps concentrated on his 30's music. It tries to cover too wide a spectrum covering the years from 1927 to 1950. However having said that, it is still a worthwhile CD to have in your collection if you like this style of music.
