It’s easy to listen to her that I thought you would feel the same, so let’s get started and start on Life And Times Of Peggy Lee Part Four, and I’ll do the conclusion of her life tomorrow. Cheer up, that only means the second dice will also be there, and it isn’t an Christmas album.

Life And Times Of Perry Como Part Five

Como in 1939, when he was with

The Ted Weems Orchestra.

I really like Perry Como, for I have six albums, which is two more than Peggy Lee(actually, I had  three albums of Peggy Lee, until this morning, now it’s three and the fourth is a double album, Perry Como has). So let’s get started with Life And Times Of Perry Como Part Five, so I can upload an album(which I uploaded this week for this blog which I’ll be uploading today).

Three years after joining the Carlone band, Como moved to Ted Weems’s Orchestra and his first recording dates. Como and Weems met in 1936 while the Carlone orchestra was playing in Warren, Ohio. Perry initially did not take the offer to join Weems’s orchestra...

PERRY COMO, 1954

In this blog Life And Times Of Perry Como Part Four, I’m going to get personal in his life, so please read my blog and listen to an album I uploaded from iTunes which means those who have Androids, can finally get to hear music, instead of the whistle that is on the bottom of your toy phone, but I’m not biased on either phone, just because I have an iPhone, doesn’t have anything to do with my unbiased views of either one. So take out your thumb from your mouth and drop your blanket, for you can hear actual music from iTunes.

Personal life

One of the many factors in his success was Como’s insistence on his principles of good taste; if he considered something to be in bad or questionable taste, it was not in the show or broadcast...

Musical Films Of 1927

The Jazz Singer released October 6, starring Al Jolson.

Musical Films Of 1927 has only one musical movie and that is The Jazz Singer, in fact it’s the very first talkie and since I’m typing you about it, it’s also the first musical move. In 1927, only one film was a musical, and that’s The Jazz Singer. From the beginning of the movie industry, 1927 was the first year that had music in it which is still talked about today. It’s still a silent movie, so I’m sure you might not want to read the subtitles, but then I watch foreign movies so silent movies is just the same. The story is dated and it moves slow, but I still had to buy the album, because this website will have an album on each blog I do...

I Know that I should have done more of John Williams before,  but I’ve been away and now I’m catching up with all my favorites, who were born from 1920 to 1945, so let me get started on The Talented Life Of John Williams Part Three, and let’s see what I have in my next blog. I hope you like it, and I do have the third disc of his album, with Steven Spielberg.

While skilled in a variety of 20th century compositional idioms, Williams’s most familiar style may be described as a form of neoromanticism, inspired by the late 19th century’s large-scale orchestral music—in the style of Tchaikovsky or Richard Wagner‘s composit...
