In weary reaction to the horror of WWII, a group of thirteen men under the leadership of Henry C. Parker III (Class of '48) joined in the joy of close harmony. The Princeton Tigertones, founded in 1946, soon outgrew the confines of the immediate Princeton area and began travelling to entertain at the women's colleges along the east coast and in the social clubs of New York city. Shortly after their founding they toured Bermuda and this helped establish the fifty-plus year tradition of world touring. Along the way their distinguished record finds three Carnegie Hall performances with another planed for 2001, alternate summers entertaining aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2, and performing world tours during which they have sung for many world leaders. The group also established the habit of recording every two years, this being their twenty-sixth recording and a continuation and tribute to the tradition begun more than half a century ago. On this eighteen song recording we are presented with a combination of lively renditions such as the opening tune, "Good Ol' A Cappella" and lovely arrangements of slower moving work such as Harry Conick's "Heavenly," "Shower the People," and one of our favorites, "Walking in Memphis." Along with the more contemporary offerings are fine arrangements of "Mood Indigo," "Loch Lomond," and "Georgia on My Mind." You can look forward to some intricate arranging for the seventeen voices of this male chorus, accentuated by fine solo voices. This is an excellent recording of collegiate contemporary choral music. You'll have to discover for yourself the unannounced "secret track" at the end. We won't spoil the surprise!
