Product Description

Product Description

2012 two CD collection. Matt Dennis was a man of many musical talents. More than half of the 48 tracks on offer here are his own compositions and he supplies some wonderful vocal and piano arrangements. Features many of his popular songs including several of his biggest successes such as: "Everything Happens To Me", "Let's Get Away From It All" and "Violets For Your Furs". Matt Dennis hasn't been seen on CD too often but I think you'll agree that this is a fantastic collection. For the uninitiated you may pick this up just because you simply know some of the songs on the set rather than the man himself, but we don't think it will be long before you say "Welcome Matt Dennis". Jasmine.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 albums from Matt Dennis March 14 2012
By DMW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection contains four Matt Dennis albums from the 1950s, more than half his recorded output: 1. Matt Dennis Plays & Sings (originally released in 1958); 2. She Dances Overhead (1955); 3. Dennis Anyone? (1955); and 4. Welcome Matt (1959).

The remasterings sound fine to my aging ears. Suffice it to say that these recordings are superior to the recordings from 55-year-old lps I have heard before, in the same way that most recent reissues of old music sound better than the scratchy old records. (I love the sound of well-cared-for, well-cleaned vinyl. I am not arguing against vinyl!)

Read Will Friedwald on Matt Dennis if you want to get interested in him. Stellar song-writer, sophisticated arranger and self-accompanist on the piano, and subtly swinging singer. . . he makes it sound so easy, but it wasn't.

Jasmine Music has done us a favor, making these albums available again.

Took us back to the lounges, and in-person Matt Dennis evenings. Still have an LP and
tapes, and never get tired of listening to this gem of a creative entertainer.

I am so glad I listened to a few snippets and bought this set as an MP3 download. Totally worth the money. I'd never heard of him or heard him. His touch is light and deft and very easy to listen to! His voice is very nice too, nothing overdone here. Great cocktail music!
