RAMSEY, Bill: Rmsey Swings 4 CD box set
[BCD 16983-DH]
£75.00

4-CD Digipak with comprehensive booklet, 100 tracks, playing time: 313:33. -- This excellent 4 CD set celebrates 41 years of top-rate music from the great singer Bill Ramsey! A jazzman from Cincinnati, Ramsey made his home and his records in Germany and gained a fine 'Schlager' image! Here are 100 unforgettable tracks of high class swing, jazz, and blues songs! And Ramsey's music always featured top soloists and excellent orchestras! Listen to over 5 hours of high class interpretations of standards and classics! 'Ramsey Swings' is the perfect CD set to mark Bill Ramsey's 80th birthday! -- An American from Cincinnati, Bill Ramsey came to Europe via the US military -and stayed to make records and a career as a singer, comedian, TV host, and more. During the '50s, '60s, and '70s he was one of the most popular stars of light music in Germany. It is often forgotten that he is also one of the most excellent jazz, swing, and blues singers of his time. Bear Family sets this straight with a fabulous 4 CD set showing the artist in his true light and cementing his real importance through more than five hours of music from 41 years of his career; that's 100 great songs! -- His first recording 'Wumba-Tumba-Schokoladeneisverkäufer' - a German hit single from the late '50s that turned into an unwanted stylistic burden. Bill Ramsey can tell you a thing or two about being derided by (mostly) self-appointed critics, but his jazz music is appreciated by the true experts and by an audience of connoisseurs. His fans will love the songs that are here - song after song of standards (from 'Caldonia' and 'Watermelon Man' to 'Over The Rainbow'), immortal classics ('Round Midnight', 'Trouble In Mind', 'Moon River'), fascinating cover versions ('The Wind Cries Mary', 'He-De-Ho', 'Motherless Child', 'Proud Mary') and more. Here, Ramsey is accompanied by top orchestras and excellent soloists - the musicians always acknowledged the singer's clearly-evident talent and they loved to accompany him. -- 'Ramsey Swings' is an unsurpassable overview of the career of one of the most brilliant singers in Germany. An ice-cream man he may be - but this set shows what he is really all about!__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Disc 1 1.
