Product Description:

Personnel: Lawrence Welk (accordion).
Lawrence Welk, the man who entertained America for 29 consecutive years on television, was as famous for his accent as much as his music. But beyond being the brunt of many jokes, the man knew what America wanted. On this collection of big-band favorites, Welk and company come up with a thoroughly entertaining collection. Whether performing their renditions of Count Basie's "One O'Clock Jump," Duke Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train," or other classics of the era, the playing is impressive. Especially effective are the brass and piano solos (though unfortunately there are no liner notes to say who played what). Rhythmically the playing might be toned down a bit, and the vocals might be stylized. Still, there is a spirit beyond mere professionalism that can't be denied. For those who enjoyed Lawrence Welk over the years, or are fans of the big-band era, this is an easy collection to enjoy. ~ Michael Ofjord
