Artist: Kaempfert, Bert
Description:
Producer: Milt Gabler. Reissue producer: Eliot Goshman. Recorded between 1960 and 1967. Includes liner notes by Steve Kolanjian. Digitally remastered by Eliot Goshman (1995, Taragon Studios, Deer Park, New York). Liner Note Author: Steve Kolanjian. Recording information: 07/07/1960-05/02/1967. Beginning with Louis Armstrong, through Harry James and Bobby Hackett of the Jackie Gleason Orchestra, the trumpet was once a king in pop music. This was true even in '60s-era easy listening, as demonstrated by the success of Al Hirt, Herb Alpert, and the ultra-shrewd German musician Bert Kaempfert, who probably was as responsible as anyone else in rehabilitating Germany's post-war world image. The Taragon label is re-releasing all of Kaempfert's many albums in an ambitious reissue project. This excellent compilation is the one to have however. As well as being a successful composer ("Strangers in the Night," "Spanish Eyes," "Danke Schon," "L.O.V.E" are all his compositions), Kaempfert was an even better producer, superior even to Herb Alpert in that he didn't rely as much on a formula sound as did the Tijuana Brass. His studio work is ultra-clean and efficient, and very pop-modern in the use of a prominently recorded low-strung electric guitar on all tracks. What lingers on are his memorable melodies however, sunnily displayed and all danceable in the old-fashioned European style.
