Standing Right Beside a Rainbow
?This is happy music. Standing Right Beside A Rainbow contains some of the best in musical comedy and hit songs from 1905 to 1935, plus two orginals written in the style of the early 1930's. With approval (and liner notes) by Miles Kreuger of the Institute of the American Musical, this collection of vintage hits is sure to please the most discriminating ear. Delivered in the same spirit as early recording artists such as Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Nick Lucas, Dick Powell, the Happiness Boys, and others, you'll hear the same wonderful vintage sound without the crackles and skips of the old 78s. The performers are jazz vocalist Sharon Evans and impressionist Rick Rogers. Described as 'A smile in motion,' together they are Evans and Rogers, the hot new vaudeville song and dance team. Behind Evans and Rogers is a small but talented crew that includes one of the most popular side men in Los Angeles, Dan Weinstein, along with master pianist of the open mic, James Lent. If you love the retro sound of the 'good old days' or have never heard it, this CD is for you.
