|Off Beat Percussion — Don Lamond and His Orchestra (1962)|
The track we have today is "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)". Yes, it's been done to death by soooooo many artists, but this version is fresh and different. It's the only version I can listen to over and over without getting sick of it!
|Machito and his Orchestra — Irving Berlin in Latin America (1959)|
So today we have Machito and his Orchestra. I just love this album. I found it for $2 it in an Op-shop many months ago. I just had to look at it to know it would sound totally kick-ass. The only thing wrong with it was that a small grand-child perhaps scribbled all over the back cover with a blue pen. But anyway, if you ever happen to find anything by Machito and his Orchestra BUY IT!!! That is if you like 50s Latin music of course!
This track is a lovely Latin version of "Blue Skies". It's a pretty song and I really like the Doris Day version too.
