I'm a big fan of Frank Loesser's lyrics and Jimmy McHugh's melodies, so I decided to add a few to my repertoire. When I'm learning new songs, I record myself a capella to see how my voicings are sounding and what I need to work on. It's bare, but I thought this turned out kind of sweet.
Possibly the geekiest use of "Nature Boy". [more inside]
Country/jazz. acapella. An open letter to Amy Winehouse. Super Mario Galaxy. [more inside]
This song was originally written in 1945 by Lennie Hayton for the soundtrack of the Minnelli/Astaire MGM musical Yolanda & the Thief. Since I just started drinking my beloved morning latte again after giving it up for 2-3 months, it felt appropriate to do a little joyful a capella singing to the world for no real reason whatsoever. Oh, if only I could set up a 5 piece band in my office... sigh.
