Unforgettable

Music by Irving Gordon

Originally Performed by Natalie Cole

he most popular version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1951 from his album Unforgettable (1952), with an arrangement written by Nelson Riddle.[1] A non-orchestrated version of the song recorded in 1952 is featured as one of the seven bonus tracks on Cole's 1998 CD reissue of 1955's otherwise completely instrumental album, Penthouse Serenade. Cole recorded the tune anew in a stereo version of the Riddle arrangement, for the album The Nat King Cole Story (1961).

In 1991, after Elvis Presley's musical director Joe Guercio had the idea, Cole's original 1951 recording of the song was edited and remixed to create a duet with his daughter, Natalie. The remixed version reached number 14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and also number three on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.[2] The song also won three awards at the 34th Annual Grammy Awards (1992): Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance.[3]

Nat Cole's original recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000.

Various Arrangers : The Great American Songbook - The Singers

Crooners, wailers, shouters, balladeers - some of our greatest pop vocalists have poured their hearts and souls into the musical gems of the Great American Songbook. They sang in nightclubs and concert halls, on television and in films, and left us a legacy of recordings still in play today. Their interpretations entertained us, moved us to tears, and wove lyrics and music into the fabric of our lives, making us see ourselves in these quintessentially American songs. This folio features 100 of these classics by Louis Armstrong (Hello Dolly - What a Wonderful World), Tony Bennett (I Left My Heart in San Francisco), Rosemary Clooney (Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep), Nat King Cole (Route 66), Bing Crosby (True Love), Doris Day (Bewitched), Ella Fitzgerald (How High the Moon), Judy Garland (Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody), Dean Martin (Everybody Loves Somebody), Frank Sinatra (Young at Heart), Barbra Streisand (People), Mel Tormé (Heart and Soul), and many, many more.

Songlist: You Belong To Me, True Love, Smile, If, Manhattan, All Of Me, I Love Being Here With You, All The Way, Day By Day, Heart and Soul, I Wanna Be Loved, And I Love You So, Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home, Autumn Leaves, Baby, It's Cold Outside, Cry Me A River, Gypsy In My Soul, That's Entertainment, Sunrise, Sunset, Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea, Bewitched, Blame It On My Youth, People, Born Free, Cabaret, Call Me Irresponsible, Dear Ruby, I Should Care, There Will Never Be Another You, Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep, and more

Acoustix : Jazz, Jazz, Jazz : 00  1 CD

Acoustix : Jazz, Jazz, Jazz

Rewarding loyal fans after years of anticipation, Acoustix presents a cache of songs guaranteed to please a wide variety of listeners. Their opening statement, the title tune "Jazz, Jazz, Jazz," is performed in homage to the greats of the era: Nat, Benny, Frank, and of course, the Four Freshmen, to whom Acoustix pay tribute throughout this album. This is not music for barbershop fans only, though the characteristic purity of the voices and seventh chords endemic to the genre are still very much in evidence. Indeed, five of the songs feature orchestral accompaniment in the big band style: "Jazz, Jazz, Jazz," "Day by Day," "Poinciana," "Graduation Day/It's a Blue World" and "Route 66." Guest vocalists Jim Clancy, Greg Clancy and Wendy Wilson DeCrow (of Vocal Majority) augment the much-anticipated Gene Puerling arrangement of "Unforgetable" (Jim and Greg) and "The Nearness of You." (Other arrangements on the CD were done by the renowned Greg Volk.) The closing medley of Simon and Garfunkel hits reveals yet another side of this amazing quartet's range and prowess.

Songlist: Jazz, Jazz, Jazz, Shine on Your Shoes/Steppin' Out with My Baby Medley, Day by Day, Answer Me, My Love, Straighten Up and Fly Right, Orange Colored Sky, The Nearness of You, Pionciana, Unforgettable, Graduation Day/It's a Blue World Medley, All the Way, Route 66, Simon & Garfunkel Montage

Acoustix : All The Best : 00  1 CD

Acoustix : All The Best

Well here's a real treat! Without doubt Acoustix are one of the best barbershop quartets there ever has been and include some of the genre's most talented singers. This is a best of CD that also includes four all new studio recordings namely "Moon River", "You Are So Beautiful", "O Canada" and "The Impossible Dream." One expects to be blown away by these singers and sure enough these new songs deliver the goods. Added bonus is that Aucoustix's previous bass (who now sings with Max Q) Jeff Oxley joins Joel T Rutherford who together take you to bass heaven. If you only own one barbershop CD (and how sad would that be) this would be the one to have! Superb.

Songlist: Tonight, That's An Irish Lullaby, I'm Afraid the Masquerade is Over, Irish Blessing, The Stars & Stripes Forever, Blackbird Medley, The Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, This Is The Moment, Day By Day, Straighten Up and Fly Right, Unforgettable, Simon & Garfunkel Montage, Cool Yule, You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch, The First Noel, O Worship the King, You'll Never Walk Alone, Fear Not My Child, Moon River, You Are So Beautiful, O Canada, The Impossible Dream

Excalibur : <span style="color:red;">Unforgettable</span> : 00  1 CD

Excalibur : Unforgettable

Excalibur's third CD and we think, their best. Considered to be a contemporary barbershop group, they have placed consistently in the top ten in competition. With arrangements by Greg Volk, whose distinctive style has been in demand by countless quartets of late (including Acoustix), the showpiece of this recording has to be the "Sound Of Music" medley. Featuring a series of amazing and inventive transitions, it's inspired, particularly "Edelweiss" and "My Favorite Things." The title track illustrates the group's forte, interpreting standards; however, they also include competition-friendly arrangements of songs such as "Ida," "Ain't She Sweet" and "Atlanta's Jumpin'." Finally, the "America" medley ends on a stirring note - is there some kind of award for "most challenging tag"? Salute!

Songlist: You'll Never Go Wrong With a Son, Sound of Music Medley, You Made Me Love You, Alley Cat, Unforgettable, Your Mother Should Know Medley, Atlanta's Jumpin' (This Jount Is Jumpin'), There Goes My Heart, Ida / Ain't She Sweet Medley, Nice Work if You can Get It, America Medley

The Four Freshmen : Still Fresh

Under the direction of original Freshman Bob Flanigan, this recent release (on Pat Boone's independent label, no less) maintains the quality of the original group, with an absolute allegiance to the unmistakable chord voicings of their style! Accompanied, with the group members playing their own instruments in Frosh tradition, songs such as "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "Straighten Up And Fly Right" will have you reveling with joy. "Meaning Of The Blues" (written by Bobby Troup) and "Moonlight In Vermont" are redolent with a liquid sensuality that hasn't lost its magic after all these years.

Songlist: My Shining Hour, Moonlight in Vermont, Get Out of Town, Where Do You Start?, Straighten Out And Fly Right, Unforgettable, More Love, Close Enough For Love, Once In Awhile, Meaning of the Blues, Walkin' My Baby Back Home

Hi-Fidelity : Reach For The Stars : 00  1 CD

Hi-Fidelity : Reach For The Stars

Speaking of really funny, top-drawer Barbershop show quartets, '06 Harmony Sweeps National Champion and Audience Favorite Hi-Fidelity are one of our personal favorites. Having cracked us up and broken our hearts with their perfectly costumed Adams Family set at the Sweeps, they have Reached for the Stars in their new show, and grabbed them! 16 tunes, the first half being more standard Barbershop fare such as "Make 'Em Laugh," "Best Seat In The House," the live, hilarious, chord-cracking "Bright Was The Night Parody," the live, loaded-with-BHS-in-jokes "Second Place Parody," "I Don't Know Medley," the exquisite "Danny Boy," the side-splitting "(Everyone's Kissing My) Fanny," "Heart Of A Clown," and "Unforgettable" (with guest Sweet Adelines quartet SparX) The second half tunes are the true icing on the cake. The first 3 are from HF's live set from the '07 Denver BHS, performed in perfect Trekkie costumes and personas, "Enterprise/Sulu Medley," "Star Trek Dialog" and "Star Trek Girls Medley" (this stuff is as funny as any Barbershop sketch comedy we've heard!). The related, but not live, "Come Fly With Me/Fly Me to the Moon Medley," "Wish Upon a Star/Impossible Dream Medley," "Lost In The Stars" and "Goodbye" finish the album very nicely. Funny, touching, beautiful stuff from one of the best quartets in the business!

Songlist: Make 'Em Laugh, Best Seat In The House, Bright Was The Night Parody, Danny Boy, Second Place Parody, I Don't Know Medley, Fanny, Heart Of A Clown, Unforgettable, Enterprise/ Sulu Medley, Star Trek Girls Medley, Come Fly With Me, Fly Me To The Moon Medley, Wish Upon A Star, Impossible Dream Medley, Lost In The Stars, Good-bye

Favorites are "Taking a Chance on Love," "Unforgettable," "For Once in My Life," "Almost Like Being in Love," "Easy Street," "Money Medley," "I'll Take Romance" and "How Deep is the Ocean." The debut CD "Can You Hear Me Now" has the good stuff, certainly one of the best Sweet Adelines recordings we've heard in a long time, by one of Sweet Adelines' top quartets!
