Music of our Lives going back to the "Swanee River" (Suwanee)Posted Tuesday, August 3, 2010, at 7:27 AM
Now this may be a bit BEFORE my time, but this heat must have brought out songs from the deep South. My mother used to teach piano, and I can remember playing and singing from a Stephen Foster book, but I also remember some performances of it by Al Jolson and even the world renowned Chipmunks!
I woke up with Al's rendition in my head but maybe it was brought into my subconscious by me seeing it on a Chipmunk record I processed yesterday.
Speaking of processing music, I can not believe the harmony achieved by the Manhattan Transfer! Now that was musical talent. They may not have always been sing along songs but if you listen to them they have excellent control of their voices and mix it soooo well in harmony. Somehow I did not seem to appreciate that years ago.
