55-YEAR OLD FLOYD CRAMER’S SONG I HAVE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE COMES TO ME IN DREAMTIME
Move over Guy Lombardo and your Auld Lang Syne. There is something special about Floyd Cramer and usherin the New Year.
Two years ago, the last song of 2013 is also the first piano tune I have ever recorded. I had been playing this Floyd Cramer piece for 50 years now (see FLOYD CRAMER JAZZ MUSIC FROM BOB’S PIANO BAR: LAST SONG OF 2013, Dec 31, 2013).
Last night, another Floyd Cramer piece came to me in dreamtime. With full orchestration! This tune, however, is one I have never played before. It was his first big hit which Cramer recorded 55 years ago (in 1960): “Last Date.”
So here you go, my first recording of 2016.. Floyd Cramer is back again:
Floyd Cramer’s “Last Date” by ALTZAR – music and film by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic – recorded at the Rainbow Shower in Maui on Jan 3, 2016
