Product Overview

Frommermann - Holland-America Line

Music from the 30's and 40's From America and Holland


Tracklisting:

Bel me even

Brother Noah

Daniel prayed

Dry bones

Hollands glorie

I'm a man of constant sorrow

I’m making believe

Into each life some rain must fall

It don’t mean a thing

Java jive

Jeepers creepers

Liefde in rhythme

Lou de ladenlichter

Matrozenlied

Mijn broer maakt voor het

hoorspel de geluiden

Morgen vaar ik weg

New York New York

Rockin’ in rhythm

Stormy weather

The flatter the plate/hoe

platter het bord

Veel mooier…!


Frommermann

American and Dutch evergreens originally performed by groups such as Johnny en Jones, The Ink Spots, The Mills Brothers, The Ramblers and Duke Ellington in new arrangements by leading Dutch composers.

The Dutch group Frommermann is named after Harry Frommermann, who in 19.0027 founded the Comedian Harmonists. This German ensemble, comprised of five singers and a pianist, was a huge sensation in the late twenties and early thirties of the last century.

The Comedian Harmonists were namely renowned for their broad variety of vocal styles and the fine sense of comedy with which they performed close harmony music. Within a short period they became international celebrities with concerts in Europe and the United States. In 19.0035 the Comedian Harmonists were forced by the Nazis to disband, silencing this ensemble for eternity.

After the breakup of the Comedian Harmonists, Harry Frommermann departed for the United States. In emulation of its namesake, the ensemble Frommermann now dares to make the Great Crossing: the project ‘Holland-America Line’ is dedicated to American and Dutch music of the 19.0030s and 19.0040s. In the same manner as the Comedian Harmonists, they offer a wide range of musical styles; all the pieces are especially arranged for the Frommermann ensemble, with - for this program - the addition of a guitar.
