My dear coz has sent me a cd....Robbie Williams....'Swinging when you're winning.'
I love these old standards and on this recording Robbie even duets with Frank Sinatra!
What a marvellous age we live in when they can put two recordings together to sound as one. All in the right key, seamlessly joined. Wonderful!
Of all modern day singers, Francis Albert was The One for me! The only one on a par is Tony Bennett.
Their breath control is awesome. Not like some of the present day so-called singers. Even the best of them take a breath or two in mid sentence.
I used to do a bit of singing myself in the days of yore but to take a breath in the middle of a phrase was the Greatest No-No.
