The Sound Of Gypsy Music - Dick Kesner

The Sound Of Gypsy Music
Dick Kesner
His Magic Stradivarius And Orchestra
Coral Records CRL 757376

This album is available for purchase/download, so I won't be posting a sample. Sorry!

Kesner made a number of terrific space age pop albums when he wasn't working for Lawrence Welk. This is a fine example of his mixing "traditional" with period pop "inventions" to create a lively and interesting blend of music.

If you download one track, I would choose "Gypsy" co-written by Kesner and Charles Dant.

Also check out Amor Latino.

Hungarian Rhapsody #2
Two Guitars
When A Gypsy Makes His Violin Cry
The Gypsy With Fire In His Shoes
Golden Earrings
Hungarian Dance #5
Play Fiddle Play
Softly As In A Morning Sunrise
Gypsy Love Song
