    Product Details


    Elsie Bianchi "Fly Me To The Moon" - Unreleased Swiss Radio Jazz 1960-62. Newly found treasures from the Swiss DRS Radio Archives: 12 previously unreleased tracks by the venerated piano player and singer Elsie Bianchi, produced with different musical formations between 1960-1962 for Radio Zurich and Radio Basel.

    "Unreleased LP" following her great "Sweetest Sound" and "Atlantis Blues" albums, with fine arrangements for trio (with Siro Bianchi, Fritz Stähli or Kenny Schmidt) and even jazz orchestra on some recordings, including such greats as "I Remember Clifford", "But Not For Me", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Secret Love" and "Misty". Remastered from the original radio tapes at 24 bit/ 48 khz, comes in unique "old photo" cover with unreleased pictures from the vaults of Elsa and Siro Bianchi plus new liner notes.

For the first time in 1958 the two traveled to the U.S. and had engagements in Palm Springs and Sun Valley from spring to autumn, along with an American drummer.
