The Breeze and I  performed by  Santo and Johnny  (1962)
Composed by Lecuona
From: USA
Mood: spooky
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Friday 4th October 2002

This recording is utter genius, and I have no idea why I didn't recommend it before. The track opens with some spooky ambient steel guitar sound effects, before some bongoes and vibes set the scene for the tune, which is picked out superbly twangily on the guitar. The great thing about the track is the spooky little effects and chromatic tunes that pop in and out in the background. Some of these are on the steel guitar, but the others could be vocal or vibraphone; it's hard to tell. It's all over in just over 2 minutes, but this really is a delightfully exotic recording.

from Encore (Canadian American JUMP 1023)
available on CD - Encore - the best of the rest (Jump-O-Rama)

Other Versions: I love Caterina Valente's version.

This is an excellent song, and I would also like to recommend the version by Pianists Ferrante & Teicher, available on one of their 6,000 albums. ;)
It has such a great musical flow and retro-feel.
There are a few other versions I recently downloaded, but virus problems prevent me from getting the artists names for you. I shall return with them.
