A Swingin' Safari
Sunday in Madrid
If there's a better way to find "That Happy Feeling" than through the medium of
music, it's yet to be found.
And, one of the most popular sounds in music today is the big bandone of the
greatest examples of which is the wonderful Bert Kaempfert Orchestra. In addition to
personifying today's big band sound, Bert Kaempfert is responsible, perhaps more than any
other single factor, for the renewed interest in the popular orchestra.
Conductor-composer-arranger-instrumentalist (clarinet, saxophone, piano, accordion) Bert
Kaempfert is responsible for several of the most sizzling recent song hits... among them,
the beautiful Wonderland By Night and Afrikaan Beat. Claiming composition as
his first love, Mr. Kaempfert wrote the previously mentioned hit, Afrikaan Beat,
and his prolific pen is responsible for no less than five of the melodies performed in
this album A Swingin' Safari, Market Day, Take Me, Happy Trumpeter, and Tootie
Here is Bert Kaempfert and His Orchestra... with an orchestral sound and style that is
characteristically ideal for either listening or dancing, and the greatest prescription
for "That Happy Feeling" ever discovered.
