The Four Aces

Four Aces

Male Vocal Jazz Quartet.

One of the most successful pre-rock vocal groups, the Four Aces did well during the early '50s with a narrow range of pop material but burned out before decade's end. Founded by Navy shipmates Al Alberts and Dave Mahoney, the act added Lou Silvestri and Sol Vaccaro before making a name for themselves around their native Philadelphia. After failing to find a distributor for their debut single "(It's No) Sin," Alberts founded his own Victoria label to release the single. It became a big hit in late 1951 and sold a million copies. Signed to Decca before the end of the year, their debut single for the label, "Tell Me Why," just barely missed the top of the charts and sold a million copies as well. A few Top Ten hits followed during the early '50s before the theme to Three Coins in the Fountain hit number one in 1954. Another movie theme, "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing," spent over a month at the top during 1955.

Mark Hayes : Love Is a Many Splendored Thing

The Four Aces hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with this ballad from the movie of the same name. Originally an instrumental-only title song, lyrics were added to make it Best Original Song eligible, a category that it won in 1955. Mark Hayes once again gives us an arrangement that is musically satisfying and beautifully expressive.
