Combining two of the 20th Century's greatest musicians — Yehudi Menuhin and Herbert von Karajan in their only recorded performance together — this magnificent programme marks a high point in filmed classical music. Both features, Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 and Dvorak's "New World" Symphony, were directed by master film-maker and long-time Karajan collaborator Henri-Georges Clouzot ("The Wages of Fear").

Teddy Wilson And His Orchestra - 1939 (1991)  Music

This CD has quite a bit of variety. Teddy Wilson is featured on four of his better piano solos, backs Billie Holiday on one session (which resulted in superior versions of "More Than You Know" and "Sugar," and has some fine solo space for altoist Benny Carter and trumpeter Roy Eldridge) and is heard on 13 selections with his new (and unfortunately short-lived) big band. The Teddy Wilson Orchestra was impeccable, tasteful and swinging (just like its leader) but, despite the presence of such soloists as trumpeter Harold "Shorty" Baker and tenor saxophonist Ben Webster, it never really stood a chance in the competitive swing world of 1939; the orchestra would only record eight additional titles. However the music on this CD is quite enjoyable and not as common as most of the recordings reissued by the Classics label.

Woody Herman had a breakthrough during the period of time covered by Classics' third Herman CD. The Apr. 12, 1939, session yielded "Woodchopper's Ball," Herman's first hit, and it also featured "Dallas Blues," "Blues Downstairs," and "Blues Upstairs." From then on, Herman's first group would be known as "The Band That Plays the Blues." Other highlights of this enjoyable CD include four titles featuring singer Connie Boswell, the Andrews Sisters guesting on "Begin the Beguine," some vocals by Mary Ann McCall, and the tracks "The Sheik of Araby" and "Farewell Blues." Despite the lack of any major soloists (beyond the leader), things were definitely looking up by August 1939 for Herman.

Ringo Starr went back to work in the summer of 1989 fronting a tour of rock stars who, like him, had become golden oldies. Ringo sang hits like "It Don't Come Easy" and "Photograph," Dr. John sang "Iko Iko," Levon Helm of the Band sang "The Weight," his bandmate Rick Danko sang "Raining in My Heart," an old Buddy Holly tune, Billy Preston sang "Will It Go Round Iin Circles," and Joe Walsh sang the Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane." (Less interesting were E Street Band members Nils Lofgren, who sang a non-hit, and Clarence Clemons, who did a rap version of "Quarter to Three.") Ringo had always depended on his friends to support his solo career, but this extended the concept to one in which he served as a sort of master of ceremonies. The tour was a success; it guaranteed a night of good and varied music, and it was fun. As a record, of course, it was redundant, but still fun.
