Midwest Vocal Express : New Orleans Decoupage

Review: Pride of Greendale, Wisconsin, the 58-strong men's a cappella chorus Midwest Vocal Express, brings us a nostalgic tribute to New Orleans, with a number of excellent guest quartets, Checkmate, JACKPOT!, Breaking News and Nightwatch, who blew us away more than once at the Harmony Sweepstakes Finals. Some favorites among these 16 songs are "Tin Roof Blues," the title tune (New Orleans Decoupage 'Way Down Yonder in New Orleans"), "Original Dixieland One-Step," "You'll Never Walk Alone," "Ja-Da," "Where the Southern Roses Grow," "Calypso Medley," "Alexander's Band is Back in Dixieland," "Zip-A-Dee Dooh-Dah," "Polka Medley," "I'll Fly Away," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Teen Medley" and "Irish Blessing." But there's not a weak cut, dry eye or untagged heartstring here. "New Orleans Decoupage" is a breath of fresh, Southern air from one of the Midwest's finest men's choruses!

Songlist: Tin Roof Blues, New Orleans Decoupage, You'll Never Walk Alone, Ja-Da, Where The Southern Roses Grow, Calypso Medly, Alexander's Band Is Back, One Voice, Zip-A-Dee-Dooh-Dah, Polka Medley, Yes Sir, That's My Baby, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, I'll Fly Away, It's Only A Paper Moon, Teen Medley, Irish Blessing
