In the Mood

This is my cover of “In the Mood“, a popular big band-era jazz standard recorded by American bandleader Glenn Miller. A No. 1 hit, it topped the charts for 13 straight weeks in 1940 in the U.S.

My version is based on the Shadow’s version from their 1964 album “Dance With the Shadows”.

Godfather Medley

This is my instrumental arrangement/medley of two of the most famous themes from “The Godfather” which was released in 1972, “The Godfather Waltz” and “Speak Softly Love”.

Both were composed by Italian composer Nino Rota, who is best known for his film scores, notably for the films of Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti. He also composed the music for two of Franco Zeffirelli’s Shakespeare films, and for the first two films of Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather trilogy, receiving the Academy Award for Best Original Score for The Godfather Part II  in 1974.

Albatross

This is my cover of the instrumental, “Albatross”, which was released in 1968 by Fleetwood Mac. It was composed by the group’s founder, Peter Green. Covered by the Shadows in 1980, the song has an “ambient” feel to it, which I have tried to preserve. Perhaps it was intended to convey a sense of the effortless flight of the wonderful birds.
