このCDは米Yazooレーベルが、1976年に発売したLP “Harmonica Blues: Great Harmonica Performances Of The 1920s And ’30s” を、1991年にCD化した商品でして、収められている曲の雰囲気を一言でいえば、『サンフランシスコ湾ブルース』みたいなサウンド、ロバート・クラム(ジャケット・イラストはこの人の作です)が好みそうなタイプの音楽、というところでしょうか。

Sammy Davis Jr. – New York’s My Home(1956)

In 1956 Gordon Jenkins issued on Capitol a new LP-length expanded version of his innovative 1946 suite “Manhattan Tower;” and competing record companies released their own versions of some of those Jenkins songs. This exciting Sammy Davis-Jack Pleis arrangement was not a major best-seller but did get a fair amount of radio airplay.

A Trip to Glen Island

A TRIP TO GLEN ISLAND Song and Chorus, 1887
Music by Malcolm Hoffman
Played by David Pearl
Today, Glen Island is a Westchester County Park in the Long Island Sound just off the shore of New Rochelle, New York. From 1879 to 1904 it was know as Starin’s Glen Island, the brainchild of John H. Starin, shipping magnet and former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Starin’s purpose was “to make the island the most popular picnic resort in the country — and to maintain it as a most orderly one and to banish from it all disturbing elements that are so frequently found at similar places.” Starin was soon drawing over 15,000 visitors daily who were bought to Glen Island by his steamships on the 1 1/2 hour ride from Manhattan.
