CD Reviews

Those were the days!

"
Bert Kaempfert became a symbol of two generations , he knew to combine the elegance, the inspiration and lyricism, always preserving this well defined personality along the late fifties and the sixties.

How can you forget themes such as Wonderland by night , Red roses for a blue lady, Strangers in the night and the world we knew of your emotional memory?. You grew up with those themes in your soul , and your heart .How many love affairs , how many marriages were made reality thanks to those beautiful and engaging melodies?

But then in the middle of the sixties when new sounds came to the ring of the popular music as Herb Albert and his Tijuana sounds, Ray Connif , Sergio Mendes or the european invasion Paul Mauriat , Frank Purcel , Georges Siravo, Norrie Paramour , Kaempfert turned around the rhythm and surprised the musical world with the a swingin ` safari . He understood the world had changed and so he accepted the challenge .

Acquire this well selected collection and turn on the clock of those days, because a trumpet never before sounded so well played!

A tremendous composer and arranger

"This album gives an excellent overview of the life and work of Bert Kaempfert. It contains all his world hits like "Danke Schoen", "L-O-V-E", "Spanish Eyes" or "Strangers in the Night" plus Kaempfert's instrumental hits like "Swinging Safari", "Afrikaan Beat" or the "Happy Trumpeter". All this titles are arranged in the peculiar "Kaempfert Bigband Sound", which I like very much.
A really great goodie of that CD is the text folder with detailed information about Kaempfert's astonishing career.
All in all: a "must" for everyone who likes instrumental easy listening sound!"
A FABULOUS ALBUM

"I FIRST HEARD BERT KAEMPFERT'S ORCHESTRA ON AN LP THAT MY FATHER HAD BACK IN 1966. I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SOUND OF HIS ORCHESTRA ALMOST IMMEDIATELY. I ESPECIALLY LOVE "OVER & OVER THE WORLD WE KNEW" (A SONG THAT BERT KAEMPFERT COMPOSED AND THAT FRANK SINATRA MADE A HUGE HIT OUT OF). KAEMPFERT'S ENCHANTING WAY OF SEDUCING THE LISTENER WITH A COMBINATION OF INSTRUMENTAL AS WELL AS VOCAL SOUNDS IS AWESOME. "TENDERLY", "DANKE SCHON", "BYE BYE BLUES" AND "STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT" WERE ALSO WELL DONE BY BERT KAEMPFERT. MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DID NOT BUY THIS AT AMAZON.COM (I MIGHT HAVE SAVED MYSELF A FEW BUCKS!)"
