Featuring the General Motors Orchestra?

The GM Orchestra? What... do they play car horns in a traffic jam? Well... not quite. Not that it wouldn’t be interesting.

Anyway... they are playing a song that Frank Sinatra made famous... but although the GM Orchestra plays with a little synchopation... this guy singing lead is perhaps the whitest singer you will ever hear.

Well, besides Perry Como.  Anyway, check out Johnny Desmond and the General Motors Orchestra in the video clip below:



Okay... let’s jazz it up a bit. Check out this version by Cassandra Wilson:



Okay... two pretty decent interpretations of a great song. But, personally... I like the Sinatra version best.

And, until next time... Cheerio.
