Organ and Keyboard Cavalcade Review by Ian King
This fills in a gap from Tony Gilbert, having already released; “Those Fabulous 50s”, “Those Fabulous 40s, “The Swinging 60s” and “The Roaring 20s”. Well this is the new one, “1930s – The Age Of Elegance”.
I’m not 100% sure what keyboards are used on this one (or his others for that matter), but the whole setup seems to be centered around a Yamaha Motif ES module. As with the previous ones in this series, this is again a cut-above many releases with a lot of time and effort going into the arrangements and registrations. As these songs are at least eighty-years old, I don’t think there will be many people buying this CD to relive their childhood, but there are some great tunes on here which have stood the test of time with some of them making rare appearances.
Highlights include, “Easy To Love / Dancing In The Dark”, “El Choclo (Kiss Of Fire)”, “Where The Blue Of The Night / Falling In Love Again”, “Bei Mir Bist Du Schon / Big Noise From Winnetka”, “The Continental”, “Isle Of Capri / Cocktails For Two”, “Just A Gigolo / I Ain’t Got Nobody” and “These Foolish Things”.
