Inspired by the inclusion of a sweet 1975 track from the Salsoul Orchestra in Monday’s post by my pal jb at The Hits Just Keep On Comin’, I’ve been peeling tangerines for the last day or so. Too bad they’re musical and not real, as I could use the Vitamin C right now.
Anyway, while I snuffle off to the drugstore, here’s a preview of some of the stuff you might find here when I present my collection of “Tangerine” covers tomorrow (I hope). This one finds the tune – written for a 1942 movie by Johnny Mercer and Victor Schertzinger – taken on by Brazilian-born and New York-based pianist/vocalist Eliane Elias. It’s from her 2004 album Dreamer, and I like it quite a bit.
