Synopsis

Amazon.com
Master film composer meets quintessential tux-and-tails entertainer in Top Hat. Henry Mancini arranged and conducts seven orchestral medleys, each based on a film Fred Astaire made with Ginger Rogers. That means we're treated to some of the most delicious songs in the history of American music, by such stalwarts as George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Jerome Kern. A bonus medley collects a few other songs associated with Fred, including one composed by the dancer himself. Yes, this is schmaltz, but it's schmaltz of the highest class. --David Horiuchi
 

CD Reviews

Much better than the "Boxed Set" of Fred and Ginger
06/25/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"We are sending this C/D to a friendin Cincinnati who is Ginger's numberone fan. Even as we listen to themusic it is easy to visualize thepair sweeping around the dance floor. The recording is clear andthe songs the best- he is certain toenjoy it."
