Herbert Rehbein - Music To Soothe That Tiger (1964)
Herbert Rehbein was a violinist who worked as an arranger and co-writer for Bert Kaempfert and his Orchestra, and recorded three LPs himself. He was also born in Hamburg, just like Bert. They were the team to write many hits for big stars like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Al Martino. This is his first album from the year 1964. It features very romantic and lush string-arrangements played in an extremely mellow and smooth way. I bet that you´ll prefer to listen to this cheek-to-cheek-music together with someone you like and with candlelight...
By the way: That´s what I call friendship: To come and to go together. This post is dedicated to Germany´s best composers: Herbert Rehbein, 1922 - 1979 and Bert Kaempfert, 1923 - 1980.
