I Want To Be Happy! - Emil Stern

Love And Marriage
I Want To Be Happy!
Featuring Emil Stern
Wacker Series
Mercury MG20341

From the back cover: Emil Stern is a picturesque example of the protean artist in action. Composer, bandleader and pianist, he has offered constant proof through the years of virtuoso qualities inherent in his keyboard magic. Though much of the music that you hear between these covers may seem deceptively simple, there can be no doubt that every time Emil Stern approaches the keyboard to elicit from it the unique characteristics of his 1925-style piano, the listener is privileged to hear the work of a true artist.

Sample something completely different from Stern's 1959 set "Moody" Mercury MGW 12002
