Hoagy Carmichael: The Essential Collection (2CD)

Hoagy Carmichael: The Essential Collection (2CD)

Ref: AVC909

(UK Postage Free )


He wrote one of the greatest and most popular standards of all time and yet there are many who probably have never heard of Hoagland Howard Carmichael, better known to his chums and fans as plain Hoagy!
The standard in question is “Stardust” and Hoagy’s own version gets AVID’s Essential Collection under way with a flourish!
CD1 continues with a host of Hoagy classics performed by the great man himself including Georgia On My Mind, Lazy River, Hong Kong Blues, Lazybones and many many more.of course!
CD2 changes direction a little and features Hoagy performing the work of other great writers including the legendary George Gershwin.
For the last eleven tracks we feature a host of great solo artists performing Hoagy tunes including Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Connie Boswell and the inimitable Bing Crosby.
So take the lazy river and shake the stardust out of your ears and listen to one of the twentieth centuries great singer songwriters………a man who was a legend before John was!!??
