Definitively, today was not a great day from the IT side, but from the music side, I think it was one of the greatest ones, sabadabada update with Balanco Trio LP, Briamonte and now this new and amazing LP that I will describe bellow. I hope that all IT issues were solved for tomorrow, 48 Hours of Tom Jobim, as they seem to be right now.

This is Doris Day – Latin for Lovers (1965), for Columbia. Yes, it is exactly what you are seeing and reading, this is Doris Day debut LP at Loronix and I’m sure that you will have a good time with it.

I have to admit that the first time I took a Doris Day for a hearing was today. In my green head, Doris Day was an actress that eventually performs as a singer. Ouch! I was wrong. Doris Day is THE singer, by the way, fantastic singer, fantastic voice and breathtaking beauty. Thanks to Lieze, which is Caetano’s wife, absolutely crazy for Doris Day and decided to present Loronixers this LP, very suitable to us, full of Tom Jobim compositions and Bossa Nova rhythms throughout the album.

Thanks Lieze and thanks Caetano for sharing this pearl. This record should reveal several hidden fans of Doris Day. I invite you do discuss Doris Day with us in comments section. Tracks include:

01 – Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars (Corcovado) (Antonio Carlos Jobim/Gene Lees)
02 – Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words) (Bart Howard)
03 – Meditation (Meditação)(Antonio Carlos Jobim/Newton Mendonça/Norman Gimbel)
04 – Dansero
05 – Summer Has Gone
06 – How Insensitive (Insensatez) (Vinícius de Moraes/Norman Gimbel)
07 – Slightly Out of Tune (Desafinado) (Antonio Carlos Jobim/Newton Mendonça/Jon Hendricks/Jesse Cavanagh)
08 – Our Day Will Come (Mort Garson/Bob Hilliard)
09 – Be True to Me (Sabor A Mi)
10 – Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps (Quizás, Quizás, Quizás) (Osvaldo Farrés/Joe Davis)
11 – Be Mine Tonight (Noche De Ronda)
12 – Por Favor

Unlike in her mommy roles in movies, Doris D. the singer was simply like Wow — when you find the time, listen to her collaboration with Harry James on “Young Man With a Horn”: Jazztastic.

(Listening to Baden Powell at the Rio Jazz Club as I write this….wow!)

Usually I check in at Loronix every night around 11 PM (Eastern time in USA). By then Zeca has usually performed his magic for the day. When I went to sleep last night this album was still not posted and so when I looked again this morning I was pleased to find it.

Doris Day got her start as a big band singer way before she became famous for her movie roles. Zeca, if you ever want to hear more of Doris I strongly suggest you listen to her album with Andre Previn as accompanist. It’s beautiful. No Bossa though. I can help you out if you want to give a listen.

I did not know about this album. Don’t know if it has made it CD. Thanks Zeca.

I agree about young Doris swing jazz records with Harry James etc, but the later period recordings found her struggling with pitch control problems

still a fun record

My generation grew up seeing her in silly movies, often with second-rate songs, unfortunately. But she was a wonderful singer when she had good material – and this is the best. What a voice! – Charlie

“Latin for Lovers” was the last album that Doris Day recorded for Columbia Records. She has said that, at the time, she didn’t want to do this album, but now she considers it among her best work.

The track “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” was used in the soundtrack of the 1992 Australian movie “Strictly Ballroom”.

Uma das melhores gravações da cantora é o lado B do single “Que sera,sera”, trata-se de uma canção entitulada “I got to sing away these blues”, muito boa mesmo.
A exemplo de Frank Sinatra, primeiro veio o trabalho de crooner de orquestra, depois o de atriz de cinema.

The arranger for this session is a guy named Mort Garson.
He was the the arranger for “By The Time I Get To Pheonix”, if you know it?

Doris Day was a fantastic singer, right in the company of Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. She recorded way over 600 songs and many were classics. Doris Day definitely didn’t have pitch control problems. Just listen to her last album, the Love Album, which was recorded in 1967 and was lost for 40 years until it came out last year. Simply sublime.
Had she not been the number one movie star in the world, she might have been more remembered as a great singer. There is definitely a resurgence of interest in Doris Day as she is being rediscovered by younger fans.
