Spanish Masters

LP (Item 355389) Philips, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

A really great little album from The Swingle Singers – one that features them working with tracks from Spanish composers, and bringing a little bit more fire into their grooves! The approach is similar to that on their Bach and Mozart sets – scatting vocal jazz versions of classical tunes, served up mostly accapella, with some bass and drum in the background. The charm of the tunes lies in their construction, though – and the group really make the most of the setting – putting in some great vocal touches where you might normally expect to hear Spanish guitar! Titles include "Sevilla", "Spanish Romance", "Tango In A Minor", "Andaluza", "Granada", and "Concerto De Aranjuez". (Black label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A weird one – but one of the real standouts in Cleo Laine's 60s catalog!

Jazzy Verve-y grooves by this fab duo, with arrangements by Charles Calello and Claus Ogerman that are similar to those used on the pair's Grass album, but with a bit less pop psychedelia thrown into the mix.

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Nancy grooves nicely in this set of 12 tracks with arrangements by Billy May – and the kind of swinging mix of soul and jazz that graced her best Capitol work of the late 60s. Titles include "Watch What Happens", "Smack Dab In The Middle", "I Wish I Didn't Love You ... LP, Vinyl record album
