Christmas In July 2007-Day 6

Is it the 6th already? Time flies when you're having fun. Today is Ferrante & Teicher Day, in case you were wondering. All three tracks are from the great piano duo, and none of them are from their classic Christmas recordings! These tracks snuck into ordinary non-seasonal albums, but I think you'll agree with me that they could just as well have been on a holiday release. The first two tracks, Skaters Waltz and Happy Sleigh Ride are both from The Enchanted World Of Ferrante And Teicher (United Artists UAS 6375, 1964) and track three, Ave Maria, is from the live album The Ferrante And Teicher Concert, Part Two (United Artists UAS 6475, 1966). The record I recorded for that last track is a bit beat, so I apologize for the clicks and pops. Hopefully you can listen through those and really enjoy it. If not, check out a non-live version of the same track by the same artists (but on a different label) that I shared out last year. But first, download today's share!

Last year featured three great organ tracks from Ethel Smith on this day. Excellent stuff!
