If you have ever been attracted to the instrumental vocalizations of anyone, The Kings Singers, The Swingle Singers, The Mills Brothers, or the Real Group to name a few, they are treading in the footsteps of the Comedian Harmonists who starred in twelve films and sold millions of records before they were suppressed by Hitler and banned from performing. Founded in 1927, they peaked in 1930-1932 before their three Jewish members became the focus of Nazi hatred. Delightful, joyous interpretations of classical and popular standards of the day are the fare of the quintet. A light piano accompaniment is provided by the sixth member who was also the arranger. This recording contains nearly 70 minutes of music from old 78 rpm records. Fabulous!!
