Various Arrangers : Standards 4

The beautiful 1937 ballad, 'I Can Dream, Can't I?' moves between lush harmonies and flowing counterpoint. It is richly texutred, yet accessible to most groups. ''Their Hearts Were Full of Spring' is as close as a mixed group can get to the original TTBB, Four Freshman, original. A very romantic a cappella ballad with lush harmony throughout! 'Am I Blue' sounds incredibly lush for having a maximum of 4 parts. A la Gene Puerling but easier. A definite "oo and ah" creator!

Songlist: I Can Dream Can't I?, Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, Am I Blue

The Barbershop Harmony Society's International Chorus competition, held in Denver, CO in July of 2007 saw California's Westminster Chorus emerge with the gold, singing gems like "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring" and "Strike Up the Band/Everybody Step" medley, followed by Ambassadors of Harmony, here singing "They Didn't Believe Me," local favorites Sound of the Rockies, singing "Colorado, My Home," and the Northern Lights, singing "'Cross the Mason Dixon Line."

Encore! : Without A Song

Mixed quintet (two men, three women) Encore! is acclaimed music educator/performer/arranger/director Kirby Shaw's baby, and is all those things for the group, which includes his wife, Markita, singing alto. 16 classic, somewhat incongruous songs: ("Their Hearts Were Full of Spring" segueways into "Sixteen Tons, for instance, and "Java Jive" into "The Rose"). But luckily, each song is a gem, for which Kirby's flawless arranging and directing is largely responsible. Other favorites: "Ain't Misbehavin'," "If Ever I Would Leave You," "Long Ago (And Far Away)," "The Boy From New York City," and "Without a Song." Kirby and company are having big fun here, and so are we!

The Four Freshmen : Day By Day : 00  1 CD : 604

The Four Freshmen : Day By Day

Recorded in 1962 as part of a Public Service series sponsored by the U.S. Navy for radio broadcast, this recording includes many the Four Freshmen standards-"Day By Day," "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring," "Route 66"-as well as some lesser known songs. Their trademark voicings made the group a popular favorite; they recorded over twenty albums for Capitol alone! Their likeable onstage persona can be heard on "Once In Love With Amy," a novelty number that sounds like singer Ross Barbour is on helium. "Somebody Loves Me" and "Taps Miller" are swung at a speed that is vivace going on dangerous-"Taps" features a challenging scat performance, while "Somebody Loves Me" has a rubato turn of phrase that is a clever device.

Songlist: Day By Day, Lulu's Back In Town, Polka Dots And Moonbeams, Teach Me Tonight, (It's Only A) Paper Moon, This October, Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, Candy, Once In Love With Amy, Show Me The Way To Get Out Of This World, Fools Rush In, Somebody Loves Me, Taps Miller, Route 66, In This Whole Wide World

The Four Freshmen : In Concert

The liner notes merely tell us that "In Concert" was recorded in the early sixties, probably at a number of live performances. The signature tight, bright harmonies are there, lightly accompanied by what sounds like an excellent jazz combo, but in fact are the 4F themselves, which always prompts the question: how can these guys sing so well and play instruments at the same time? There are 11 songs, mostly of the "torch song" variety: "You've Got Me Crying Again," "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "Love Lost," "There Will Never Be Another You," "Polka Dots and Moonbeams," "How Can I Tell Her," "Angel Eyes," "Blues In The Night," "Fools Rush In," "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring" and "In This Whole Wide World." The electricity of a live performance, while losing none of the excellent recording quality and tone-music to slow dance to!

Songlist: You've Got Me Crying Again, I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, Love Lostwomens, There Will Never Be Another You, Polka Dots and Moonbeams, How Can I Tell Her, Angel Eyes, Blues In the Night, Fools Rush In, Their Hearts Were Full of Spring, In This Whole Wide World

Ladies First : 1st : 00  1 CD : Manfred Adams

Ladies First : 1st

When "Ladies First" was founded in 1991, they didn't know that their name would also become a testimony of our success. Since the first German Barbershop Competition in 1992, Ladies First has taken first place every time. They won three provincial choral competitions and were the first German Chorus to qualify and be invited to the Sweet Adelines Internationals in Atlanta in 1999. Their director, experienced German "Barbershopper" Manfred Adams, brings the best out of his "Ladies," whether it be in music, choreography or simply entertainment. "1st" is all sung in English, and is an impressive, finely-crafted tour-de-force of a CD. The powerful harmonies, the innovative arrangements and the sheer, infectious spirit of these four women show why they have won so many awards in the growing European Barbershop movement. 15 cuts, "This is Some Lucky Day," "Original Dixieland One Step," "Stars Fell on Alabama," "It Don't Mean A Thing," an amazing arranged "Drunken Sailor," a "Good Old Acappella" that warms our hearts, a smoky "Hit Me With A Hot Note," a randy "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," Elvis' "Love Me Tender," and a swinging "Royal Garden Blues" are favorites. Sweet Adelines has taken strong root in Europe, and Ladies First has the kind of sound and pizzazz that we have only seen from groups wearing International medals and posing in front of large trophies-give 'em a listen!

Songlist: This Is Some Lucky Day, Love Is Here To Stay, Original Dixiland One Step, Stars Fell On Alabama, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), The Rose, Drunken Sailor, One Alone, Good Old A Cappella, Their Hearts Were Full of Spring, Hit Me With A Hot Note, When October Goes, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Love Me Tender, Royal Garden Blues

Rhythmix : What A Ride! : 00  1 CD

Rhythmix : What A Ride!

Coppell, TX-based Rhythmix is a multiple Sweet Adelines regional-winning champion and internationally ranked barbershop quartet, and "What A Ride" is their second CD release, the first being 1999's "En Route." 11 finely-crafted standards like "This Is Some Lucky Day," Ella Fitzgerald's "A Tisket A Tasket," "I Didn't Want to Fall," and "Yes, Indeed" and romantic heart-tuggers like Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring," "If You Love Me, Really Love Me" and "Why Did I Choose You." The four finish strong with a jazzy, incongruous "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" and a tongue-in-cheek, drama-ridden "High Heel Blues."

Songlist: This Is Some Lucky Day, In The Wee Small Hours, They Can't Take That Away From Me, Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, A Tisket A Tasket, If You Love Me, Really Love Me, I Didn't Want to Fall, Why Did I Choose You, Yes Indeed, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, High Heel Blues

The Suntones : Masterwork Series : 00  1 CD

The Suntones : Masterwork Series

Miami, Florida's Suntones, formed in 1957 singing innovative arrangements of "Old Black Magic" and Hi-Lo's songs, finally won SPEBSQSA Quartet Gold in 1961. They went on to record extensively and seek professional bookings outside of barbershop circles, causing them to perfect their act, and helping to create a world of possibilities for top-drawer barbershop groups in the entertainment industry. "Suntones" is a "best-of" collection of 23 songs, certainly tough choices given the large number of excellent recordings by the group. From the first cut, "Bye, Bye Blues," the final tune in their Gold-winning set that became a trademark for them, we see how special this group is. "After You've Gone," which begins straight, introduces a major 7th chord, jazzy 2nd chorus and wild and crazy tag. "If You Can't Tell the World She's A Good Little Girl," "Old Songs Medley" showed that even though they tended toward daring innovations, they never lost their love of the simple, "square" barbershop songs. "Danny Boy," "That Old Black Magic," "West Side Story Medley," "Jezebel," "Where Is Love," "Show Me Where The Good Times Are," "Tennessee Waltz," "Shrimp Boats" and "For All We Know" need to be listened to again and again to appreciate the chances the Suntones took, and how solid the barbershop fundamentals were that formed their base. "Suntones" is an amazing recording on many levels, and certainly mandatory listening for aspiring quartets to expand their horizons.

Songlist: Bye Bye Blues, Emaline, After You've Gone, If You Can't Tell The World She's A God Little Girl, Old Songs Medley, Danny Boy, No, No, Nora, Finian's Rainbow Medley, That Old Black Magic, A Little Street Where Old Friends Meet, West Side Story Medley, It's A Most Unusual Day, Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, Jezbel, Where Is Love?, Watch What Happens, As Time Goes By, Two Guy Medley, Show Me Where The Good Times Are, Tennessee Waltz, Shrimp Boats, Armed Forces Medley, For All We Know

The 57-strong, all-male Los Angeles-based Westminster Chorus is a Barbershop Harmony Society Legend! First formed in the Spring of 2002 of 15 members whose average age was 20, the chorus grew to over 50 members, captured the Far Western District Chorus Championship in 2003 and 2005, then placed an incredible 2nd to The Vocal Majority in 2006. This relatively unknown group, the youngest chorus ever to grace the International stage, went on to win International Gold in 2007 and 2010! "It Only Takes a Moment" is a well-chosen "Best Of" selection of 16 varied songs, from traditional tunes like "Sloop John B," "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel," "Shenandoah" and "Goodbye Dixie, Goodbye;" Swing music like, a wonderful "Nat King Cole Medley," Gershwin's "Let's Burn Up the Town" and "Hit That Jive Jack;" Classical songs like Rachmaninov's "Bogroditse Devo" and Esch and Whitacre's "Lux Aurumque;" heartstring-tuggers like the title tune, "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring," "Still Fighting It" and "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go" and foot-tappers like "Early American Uptempo Medley." Westminster's sound is powerful yet subtle, equally adept at inspiring us with a soaring crescendo and breaking our hearts with a romantic tune about love. This is a marvelously entertaining, beautifully arranged collection from the talented young guns of the Barbershop Harmony Society!
