Description

After four tunes from 1935-36, which were not at hand to be included previously, Volume 6 in Nostalgia Art’s chronological Mills Brothers CD series covers 22 numbers recorded in 1939, some in New York and most from London, where they also toured England extensively. Much of the material presented here shows The Mills Brothers in a reminiscent mood, performing new versions of songs they had recorded earlier in the decade, but with increased maturity, polish and finesse. The Mills Brothers, with their distinctive brand of “vocal instrumentation” and perfectly blended voices, are the most famous vocal jazz group of all time. Their more leisurely pace on many of these tunes enables the listener to better appreciate the finesse and subtleties of their beautiful harmonies as well as their fantastic vocal imitations of musical instruments.

Personnel
