Swing Around the World Album

Our 3rd album is a classic international collection of American Swing, French Foxtrot, German Tango, Spanish Cha Cha, and much more! Available on our SHOP PAGE.

With this album, listeners can get a sense of the wide variety of styles being played in the 1940s. During WWII, America had its heyday of swing music with big bands like Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Chick Webb, and lovely vocalists like Helen Forrest and Ella Fitzgerald. Selections include "Sing me a Swing Song," "Undecided," and "On the Sunny Side of the Street." A sweet, but lesser known Irving Berlin tune will have you sighing, "I Want to Go Back to Michigan." For a romantic jazz setting, we have "The Man I Love" as interpreted by Lena Horne, Billie Holiday, and many of the great singers of the 1940s. To round out that classic Swing Era sound, we have a lilting rendition of Glenn Miller's hit, "Moonlight Serenade." 

Over in Paris, French chanson hits like "La Vie en Rose" were at the height of their popularity, and we have included "La Mer," which is the original French tune written by Charles Trenet, that went on to receive acclaim in America as Bobby Darin's swinging "Beyond the Sea." 

The exotic film, "La Habanera," includes a mysterious tango sung in German by Zarah Leander, titled "Der Wind Hat Mir Ein Lied Erzaehlt." Other Latin Jazz selections on this album include the classic bolero, "Besame Mucho" and the joyful cha cha, "Tu Voz" that Celia Cruz recorded decades ago with La Sonora Matancera. 

For our Yiddish speaking audience, we included a hit made popular by the Barry Sisters, "Abi Gezunt," with a great swing beat to dance to. They had a hit radio show in the 1940s that took traditional Klezmer tunes and revamped them with American arrangements to match the swing music craze of the day.

"Tu Vuo' Fa' L'Americano" was written and popularized by Renato Carasone, and you can't help but snap your fingers to this Neopolitan hit. The swing music craze was reaching around the globe and Italy had its own string of hits to boast of. This is perhaps one of the most memorable.
