CD Reviews

Barry McCanna | Normandy, France | 10/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Carroll Gibbons led the Savoy Orpheans, the resident band at the Savoy Hotel; his Boyfriends was a small group drawn from the full band, and Hildegarde was a visiting American vocalist who recorded several sessions with them during the thirties. Incidentally, the title of this CD should read "Ooh! That Kiss", which conveys a sensuous reaction more in keeping with the songwriters' intention.

Hildegarde takes vocal honours on seven tracks, including the song "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup" which was a best-seller. Carroll's fellow-American, pianist and composer Johnny Green, is present on two tracks, and Matty Malneck's violin embellishes Carroll's signature tune of "On The Air".

This is a stylish compilation of thirties recordings, many of which tunes have since become standards. You should snap it up if and when it becomes available.
The Perfect Playlist

"Clarity and Pureness begin to describe the quality of Vocalion re-mastering.
And in addition,
Michael J. Dutton's careful attention taken in arranging the playlist
of these magnificant melodies
is genius."
