Please try again later. Audio CD Verified Purchase. Any album of Hoagy Carmichael is welcome, and this is generally a fine set.
Offered here are sound and performance anomalies, so the buyer knows what to expect. This is most apparent on the very next song, Goldkette’s “So Tired,” which is spoiled by constant surface crackle and lathe distortion in loud passages.
Nothing short of extreme Dolby could’ve salvaged this one– too bad none was applied. The CD’s detailed booklet lists Carmichael as vocalist on both 4 and 6. If so, he’s not using his natural voice. Hoagy sings dreadfully off-key on the “Georgia,” and he does only a bit better on “Havana. A solo piano version of “Lazy Bones” includes an intro and lyrics that are never heard anymore.
The piano “Stardust” is brilliant but marred but a swoosh that persists for the first 1: Half the record is a crackle-fest. Sometimes you may wonder why you bought this CD, but I never did and never would. How can you not love Hoagy Carmichael. OK, he’s got some age on him, but that just makes this CD better.
Scene brought to mind by the battered, dust-laden cover of an old Hoagy Carmichael Bluebird Label record found in a back bedroom closet up at Josh Breslin’s cozy logwood cabin in wintry outback Maine a couple of years back. Long-fingered, soft-dashed, soft Stetson-brimmed hat slanted to the back of his head just short of falling off, always just short of falling off, cigarette, unfiltered of course, dangling, edge dangling off some forsaken lip, some browned tobacco lip, and the lip hanging off a slapdash calculatedly careless face, a face weary, wary, and just short, just short of yellow jaded, the keyboard, ivories tinkling, black setting off the white in the be-bop, no pre-be-bop night.
Making one think, and think hard, of Carib nights, of some vagrant maddening fragrance as Laren Bacall, full-blown hair falling off to one side stardhst her head, steps into, no, sashays from parts unknown into any gin mill in old Port-o-town, the soft sound of silk against stardudt slender thighs turning heads to watch her shape head toward some grizzled old ancient sea captain, Captain Bogie, and ask for carmuchael light for her cigarette, unfiltered of course, and an off-hand drink.
Later, carmicael, when all dust is settled wise, almost yellow jaded, old Cricket will piano back her up on some song, oh ya, How Little We Know, but who cares for anything then but that arched-browed come hither, and hope, hope against high heaven that she will ditch that lame sea captain, hero or not, and give a young buck a chance.
And later still, still sashaying, silky thigh sashaying out some crooked barroom door cooing Am I Blue with that damn monkey of a sea captain in tow.
But don’t blame Hoagy. Carmichael was there on the ground floor of the pre-big band era when jazz was king and the men who would be giants just hung out and played together.
Bix, the Dorsey brothers, Goodman, Goldkette and more. Here you can catch how jazz influenced the sound of pop in the late twenties and how perfectly suited to that sound Carmichael’s compositions were, while still managing to push the envelope on new and interesting changes. It’s always a pleasure to hear him work.
He was cool long before it was in vogue, relaxed and yet always in control. I ‘discovered’ Hoagy Charmichael as an undergraduate at Indiana University and this was the first piece of Charmichael’s work I ever bought.
My original copy was a tape I played again and again until there was nothing left but squeaks. This recording has the best collection I have found of Charmichael performing his own work.

I have since purchased many recordings of Charmichael’s work but this will always be my favorite. See all 5 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
