Today we received a new PEGGY LEE album with live renditions 'On The Ed Sullivan Show' back in 1962! Since it's taken from TV shows it is in mono but in very good quality! Since she's such a joy to listen to, we'll add them to our playlist as soon as we can.🀩πŸ₯³πŸ˜ƒ

Kelly Eisenhour (April 17, 1960, Tucson, Arizona) is a jazz vocalist. These weeks she released her third album called 'I just found out about love' which is produced, arranged, and co-played by the one and only Jeff Hamilton!!! These days he's most known for his excellent drumming in Diana Krall's Trio, but he has a too-long list of other musical highlights too. Anyway, we selected nine songs/renditions from Kelly's newest album which will 'enjoy your ears'.😁🀩😎

"I LOVE ROMANCE THAT SWINGS!" A quote by singer Catharine Russell. Her latest (eighth) album, 'Send For Me' was released earlier this month and can be heard on our 24/7stream since we really do love what she does.

Catherine reinvigorates rare gems and stalwart standards from the Great American Songbook, lending her voice to the compositions of Nat King Cole, Irving Berlin, Eddie de Lange, Jimmy Van Heusen, Al Dubin, Louis Jordan, and Harry Warren. Russell’s deep connection to her chosen material is part of a calling.

As the daughter of pioneering and legendary musicians, pianist/orchestra leader/composer/arranger Luis Russell, and bassist/guitarist/vocalist Carline Ray, so Catherine Russell was born into jazz royalty.

TODAY'S ADDITIONS TO OUR PLAYLIST! Normally we don't make much fuzz about 'new renditions' in the list, but today we make an exception to that rule. We selected 12 songs by Julius La Rosa. That sets his a total on 50. Hilary Kole has 17 songs now. But a new name on our playlist is Betty RochΓ© from New York City, but originally from Wilmington in Delaware. πŸ™ƒThough she had a sporadic career, she became best known for her version of "Take the "A" Train" with its composer Duke Ellington. πŸ₯° According to AllMusic, "was famous for her strong, dramatic way of putting across blues material" πŸ˜‰

TONIGHT at midnight EST we'll start our Valentine's Day songs promotion. To be honest we never did that before but I'm glad we could finish it on time. Not very, strangely enough, there are some more male singers versions selected than female ones. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

MARVELOUS MARILYN MAYE is 93! and still with us AND performing nationwide! So it's about time that we put our first 2022 spotlight on her. There’s a certain phenomenon that occurs when Marilyn Maye sings or from the moment she walks on a stage. She’s funny and clever and she sang the great American songbook, or mainly swung it, in her own inimitable style.

Currently, we are listening to a selection of her albums to evaluate which of her renditions should get added to our station's playlist at last. This all happened due to a discovery of her rendition of "Sherry!' from an eponymous broadway musical from 1967. Sherry is based on the 1939 play The Man Who Came to Dinner. Here's the link to listen to Marilyn's rendition also from 1967! πŸ₯³πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜

Hi Everyone! This post is not meant to be funny but's remarkable for sure! Every white spot on this map can hold numerous listeners. It represents not the street where you live but the location where your internet provider puts you online. A few minutes ago my eyes got focused on this listener's city located in California. πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒ

CARMEN McRAE 1959! I don't know about you but on this fifth day of 2022, I finally succeeded for a very very long time to play a whole album without interruption and with a lot of enjoyment too. With 133 renditions Carmen already is well represented in our playlist but for some mysterious reason, I missed this 'Something To Swing About' album. Happy that this MCA MVCM-269 release got a Japanese re-release.πŸ˜‰

When Carmen sings, it is with the imagination, the sensitivity, and breathtaking technical artistry of a fine jazz musician. Where other vocalists seem restricted by the original melody line, Carmen’s vocal improvisations, diction and phrasing make her the country’s supreme vocal jazz artist!πŸ™ƒπŸ₯³πŸ˜πŸ˜

Hi Everyone! On behalf of our little crew: Thank you very very much for listening! Luckily more and more people worldwide found us on the internet. This year our number of listeners grew more than 10%!

Our anchorwoman Jennifer Roberts and I made a special 'thank you & new year's eve' jingle which will be played almost every uneven hour. It will be followed by a rendition of Frank Loesser's 'What Are You Doing On New Years Eve'. We selected 45 different ones! One of Jennifer herself included. Here you can listen to this very live broadcast moment!

Tomorrow December 12 is Frank Sinatra's Birthday and we of course celebrate that with a few rare live renditions recorded at The Sands. Not the well-know 1966 Sinatra/Basie ones but the lesser know live recordings from 1961 with the orchestra of Antonio Morelli. They are very special due to the repertoire he did then. Wonderful songs he stopped doing live, later on, like; Imagination, Moonlight in Vermont, Without a Song,The One I Love Belogs To somebody Else, Witchcraft to name a few. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK! πŸ₯³πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒπŸ˜˜

SUE RANEY. Yesterday we were fortunate to add 20+ extra renditions by singer Sue Raney. Strangely enough not an American Songbook 'household name'. She made her first album (When Your Lover Has Gone) back in 1957 with Nelson Riddle when she was 17. Today she's still with us at the age of 81.

What makes vocalist Sue Raney special? First and foremost, she uses her intonation like a fine net that renders you immobile. As Sue sings, she has this way of commanding attention by wrapping a lyric around her finger without ever becoming possessive about the story.

The second factor is Sue's technique, which is remarkable. She has a mighty passing gear but never abuses it. Instead, she knows how to surge without ever breaking a sweat, making those extra efforts seem like a snap. The third factor is her incredibly sweet and gracious conversational style. πŸ€©πŸ˜‰πŸŽ§πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰

THE VERY BEST CHRISTMAS CD OF 2021! With all respect to others we promote and will promote in coming weeks, Brett Eldredge's 'Mr. Christmas' cd made us all very happy. Superb voice, fantastic orchestra, and exclusive arrangements on this one. Of course, not all songs do fit in our format but most of them do.

Brett originally is a country singer from Paris Illinois and was nicknamed 'Mr. Christmas' a few years ago by DJ Bobby Bones during his radio show after 'Glow'his fist Christmas cd. You can hear this very moment during the special jingle we made for this top album! 😎🀩πŸ₯³πŸ₯°πŸŽΌπŸŽΉπŸŽ€

PAUL CARRACK RELEASED A NEW GAS ALBUM YESTERDAY. Lots of pop singers often switch from their pop-music top-hit genre and produce an American Songbook album or more. The worst example to me is what Rod Stewart produced in our genre. Lots of CDs with the same boring elevator & shopping hall sound. But he cried his way to the bank. Today I listened to the third album in our genre of Paul Carrack. Paul who? Ok, I’ll mention a just few titles which will ring a bell. β€˜How Long (Is this been going on)’ β€˜Tempted’ and β€˜Love Will Keep Us Alive’ made popular by the Eagles. I knew about his exclusive craft on singing since we already agreed to add a number of other renditions by him to our playlist when he released 'A Different Hat' a few years ago. Paul Carrack has that wide and full vocal range with a bluesy raspy influence which is extremely unique for a singer with his roots. Soon to be heard on our stream! 🎹πŸ€ͺ😎😘
