Bert Kaempfert - Bye Bye Blues album download
Bert Kaempfert (born Berthold Heinrich Kämpfert, 16 October 1923 – 21 June 1980) was a German orchestra leader, t, music producer, arranger, and composer. He made easy listening and jazz-oriented records and wrote the music for a number of well-known songs, including "Strangers in the Night" and "Moon Over Naples". 1 Early life and career. Bert Kaempfert & His Orchestra. Promotion of the Beatles. Over the next few years, he revived such pop tunes as "Tenderly", "Red Roses for a Blue Lady", "Three O'Clock in the Morning", and "Bye Bye Blues", as well as composing pieces of his own, including "Spanish Eyes" (. Moon Over Naples"), "Danke Schoen", and "Wooden Heart", which were recorded by, respectively, Al Martino, Wayne Newton, and Elvis.
Bert Kaempfert was coasting at the peak of his popularity when he released Bye Bye Blues in early 1966. Perhaps that's the reason why he decided not to change his formula at all on this breezy collection of standards, originals, and contemporary tunes. The title is no joke: this is a sunny album without a care in the world, lightly swinging to its own beat. Kaempfert's big, brassy arrangements are appealing but a little similar, which means that the entire record kind of blends together; there's no beginning or end, just 12 easy listening tunes that flow into the next.
The album originally released 1966 in Europe. All tracks recorded 1965 at Studio Rahlstedt, Hamburg. CD Digipack with the look of the original album covers.
