Songs By Jackie Paris

Jackie Paris!
I bought the original album 'Can't Get Started' in 1956. The album cover was changed almost as soon as it was released because it showed a group of kids in swimsuits laying on a beach in a tangle of arms and legs. Nothing suggestive or in bad taste...just a bunch of kids doing what we all did at that age in those times, but apparently, someone didn't approve.
I still treasure that cover and it sits in my living room...unplayed for years.
I Can't Get Started is my favorite. It was the first time I had heard the verse to this great classic, and have been singing it constantly.
Whispering Grass, a beautiful song, was and still is a favorite of Jazz musicians, but Jackie's vocal treatment has stayed in my head since I first heard it.
There isn't one clunker in this set...and if this is the first time you've heard him, I know you'll share my enthusiasm for Jackie Paris. Buy it...you'll love it!
