The Breeze and I

The Breeze and I” is based on original solo piano piece entitled Andalucía, written by the Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona as part of his Suite Andalucía in 1928. English lyrics were added in 1940 by Al Stillman.

The Shadows used an arrangement by their producer, Norrie Paramor, as the “B-side” to their 1963 #1 UK hit “Foot Tapper”. This version is accompanied by an orchestra.

My arrangement is based on — and borrows heavily from the Shadows version. However, I left out the strings and woodwinds and added a couple of interludes borrowed from another source. See if you can identify it!
