Blue Moon

I suspect there aren’t too many people on the planet who haven’t heard this classic song. Written by the great songwriting team of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, it has been recorded countless times. Boomers will likely recall the #1 1961 doo-wop version by the Marcels.

The Ventures recorded it on their album “Colorful Ventures”. While inspired by this, my version is not based on theirs. It is more “Latin” — perhaps a bit more the way The Shadows might have done it.

Orange Fire

“Orange Fire” was originally a track on the 1961 album “Colorful Ventures”. Each song on the album has a color in the title. There are some standard, well-known songs like “Blue Moon” and “The Green Leaves of Summer” and a bunch of other tracks like this one and “Yellow Jacket” .
