a great collection of the timeless classics from the 40s!
martin and his wife Shirley are best know from the 80's pop groups Spandau Ballet/ Pepsi & Shirley / Wham!
I don't think I have ever heard Martin sing lead vocals before.....and was really surprised how good his voice is! Shirley was a backing singer/Vocalist for Wham! in the early days before her and Pepsi had a few huge hits in their own right.
They have been together for decades and this collection of hits with a huge jazz orchestra is brilliant!!! I know must of them as they are standards and popular tunes even though they are well before my time!
I bought is for myself and also my parents who where around when the songs where released - they love it!! I have also had to buy copies for anyone that has popped in the house and asked who it is!
Its a upbeat album full of timeless beautiful songs like "fly me to moon" , "how do you like your eggs in the morning?" and "the way you look tonight?" - if you think you don't know any of the songs I promise you will when you hear them!!
