Light-pop amount Bob Thompson isn’t exactly like a afterwards jazz musician from the same name. That one, the “poor man’s Esquivel,” was created in 1924 in San Jose, California. After high-school music group, he utilized music to place himself through university at the School of California at Berkeley. This is followed by just work at channels KMBC and KGO in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, California. A 1950 stint in Paris with vocalist Jacqueline François resulted in further sessions overseas, even in china and taiwan, and on both coasts from the U.S. He caused Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, among others, but this function producing and organizing generally had nothing in connection with the bachelor-playboy picture projected by himself albums. (Over the Rocks includes a notorious image of the bikini-clad brunette evidently sitting within a highball cup.) Thompson’s single records act like those of Esquivel. The principle reason behind that is that RCA tacked on wordless choruses (for those who weren’t sure Thompson’s music is normally light hearing.) Contrived mainly to accompany house entertaining, it really is exemplary “music for the space-age bachelor pad.” The result is about exactly like from a vintage romantic humor of your day. A couple of infectious and “astonishing” embellishments; worldly savoir-faire and flavor are generally in proof; the dialogue is normally good however, not great; and there is certainly never anything as well troubling. But with such solid program veterans as Larry Bunker behind him, it really is superior to average easy hearing.
