Reseña de álbum

Frankie Carle's sweet band enjoyed their greatest period of popularity in the mid-'40s, when they ranked just behind Swing and Sway With Sammy Kaye and Les Brown and His Band of Renown, scoring hits like "A Little on the Lonely Side," "Oh! What It Seemed to Be," and "Rumors Are Flying," each of which hit number one in Billboard and/or on Your Hit Parade. Carle's recordings have been reissued only sparsely over the years, and this 25-track single CD with a running time of nearly 75 minutes is the most extensive collection of his original Columbia Records tracks yet released. With the exception of "Charmaine," which placed in Billboard's jukebox chart for only a single week, and "Twelfth Street Rag," another one-week jukebox-chart entry that was actually an eight-year-old Carle solo piano instrumental dredged up during the 1948 recording ban, it includes all of Carle's hits from the period 1944-1949. And since he didn't actually have 25 hits, there's more. Especially welcome are instrumentals like "Carle Boogie" and "Penguin at the Waldorf" that give a sense of the leader's piano playing. Two of these non-vocal numbers are previously unreleased, "Falling Leaves" and "Moonlight Whispers," the latter co-written by Carle. But he remains best remembered for those dreamy ballad hits, many of them featuring his daughter, Marjorie Hughes, who turns in typically warm, yet uninvolved vocal choruses.

Frankie Carle had one of the longest careers in big-band music, from the '30s right up through the '80s, more than a half-century of making music, and even more amazing a record given his current lack of representation in the CD bins. Carle began his career as a pianist, taught by his uncle Nicholas Colangelo. At age 13, he landed a gig in his uncle's orchestra, playing for $1 a week; by 1920, he was already leading his own short-lived group. He participated in his first recording sessions —...
