Classic swagger is reborn - introducing Simavi and his debut album, Memories Of You.
Memories Of You is a 23 track tour-de-force of timeless pop standards, with outstanding arrangements from the likes of Quincy Jones, Johnny Mandel, Nelson Riddle and Billy May. Combined with Simavi's musical direction, the result is nothing short of moving. Many singers are backed with orchestral arrangements. None have a 50-piece band behind them - except Simavi. Recorded over a span of several years at the prestigious Edison Studios in New York City, Simavi accomplished the rare feat of engaging a 50-piece orchestra to record Memories Of You. Produced by Simavi himself, the album gives equal footing to standards like, "Fly Me To The Moon", "The Way You Look Tonight", "The Girl From Ipanema", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "I Wish You Love", and lesser known tunes like, "To The Ends Of The Earth", "Love Looks So Well On You", "Tell Her You Love Her", "Again" and "Let Me Be The One". Each recording, wrapped in lush orchestral arrangement, pulls in listeners at every moment. And as a bonus, Memories Of You is an enhanced CD, and features a video of a live performance from Simavi at Lincoln Center in New York City, viewable on any DVD or CDRom player.
Memories Of You (*) is now available at Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, iTunes, and wherever music is sold.
