CD Reviews

Two amazing LPs on one CD
David Kenner | Fort Worth, Texas United States | 05/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Taragon is doing a great job of reissuing Kaempfert product. This particular disc to me, is the cream of the crop. These two LPs showcase the Kaempfert orchestra at the top of their game. The first disc is an amazing collection of latin standards (and a couple of originals!) and the second disc is one of his most beloved albums and all time best sellers. Together on one CD, they make for quite an enticing package. Besides the Kaempfert classics (Blue Midnight, L-O-V-E, Red Roses for a Blue Lady and Three O'clock in the Morning) there are many outstanding yet lesser known gems in the Kaempfert catalog. Bert's incredible arrangements of Besame Mucho and The Breeze and I sound as exhilarating today as they did over thirty years ago. Other highlights of the Latin album are Cha Cha Brasilia, Chicken Talk, and Bert's Bossa Nova (samples of which have been turning up on hip hop records and in television commercials lately.) You may want to start your Kaempfert collection with Taragon's excellent 16 track Best Of compilation, but this is an indespensible companion to that disc as many of Bert Kaempfert's best recordings are not always his best known."
Doesn't Get Much Better
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 01/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Easy listening/dance music doesn't get much better than Bert Kaempfert. Kaempfert possesses one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds of the last fifty years! Taragon's release of his product is to be applauded; the remastering is superb! The tunes---ah, there isn't a bad one on here! The use of Bert's signature trumpet; the omnipresent bass riffs; the impeccable percussion; smooth strings; and that enchanting female voice, this is what makes Bert Kaempfert one of the Best!"
Well loved & missed! Thanks to Taragon for the restoration

"The reason why everyone who has ever heard music by Mr. Bert Kaempfert has tapping toes is evident in this two-album CD! I can't tell you how much I missed his music, but I can tell you that I have almost every CD recording of Mr. Kaempfert's extraordinary and talented production. What a fine class of work this man created! His trumpet blowing is refreshing and delightful. His guitar playing is incredible and smart. Mr. Kaempfert has never fall short of remarkable when he composes (or scores) music. I was young when I remembered my first toe-tapping experience. I don't forget music that made me do this. Therefore, you too won't forget that it was no other than Mr. Bert Kaempfert, one of the finest 20th century composer of toe-tapping music. Enjoy!"
