Album Notes
Crooning is the smooth romantic style of singing popular from Tin Pan Alley thru the 1940’s. Bill. Dougal studies vintage vocalists like Bing Crosby, Dick Powell, and Johnny Mercer. He has been compared to Leon Redbone. The nostalgic repertoire includes songs from the 1920’s like Gershwin's "Somebody Loves Me". The latest tune is Bobby Troupe's Route 66. Ellington's jazzy "Satin Doll" really swings. Hear the little known song “You Can't Stop Me From Dreaming". Tempos range from ballads to up-tempo swing. The background instrumentation was done in various sessions; some featuring piano, and others guitar. Musicians include; Nat Needle, Mike Price, Dave Johnson, Bill Flowerree, Jeff Taylor, Jim Wark, Brian Johnson, Martha Summa, Pat Kiely, Tom Bittel, Dennis Rayburn, Ken Legace, Dave Wertel and Pat Lavery. In the eighties Bill used to have an eclectic rock band , "Billy & the Buttons". The Bonzo Dog Band was one of his favorites, and their nostalgic forays were inspirational. Bill collects old records, and writes songs. One of his songs has charming naivet'e and humor, and fits the croon style; "Pretty Girls Go By in Cars".
