Andy's vocals croon these great old standards performed with big band arrangements. This 4 song EP is the precursor to the 10 song CD "Come Dance with Me" to be released in 2017. Enjoy these beautiful, old songs as you dance around the living room.

"I am so excited to be working on my new CD “Come Dance with Me”. I have been thinking about recording this CD for many years and started the planning 3 years ago. It is a dance friendly CD of some of my favorite songs recorded with a big band sound".

“When You’re Smiling” has been one of my favorite songs forever and I just had to record it. I chose Frank Sinatra’s version of the George Siravo arrangement of the song. Chris Mitchell adapted this fine arrangement and gave it a shiny new feel. I am so pleased with the results.

“Fly Me to the Moon” has a lovely new arrangement by Chris Mitchell. People say “it sounds so - New York”.

“All of Me” is my take on Bublé’s version of this great old standard.

I pondered over “Can’t Help Falling in Love” for ages and I really like how we worked this lovely song that Elvis made popular in 1961.

The next 6 songs, to complete the 10 song CD, are in the development stages and will be recorded soon with a planned release date of the “Come Dance with Me” CD in 2017. The 6 remaining songs include:

“Save the last Dance for Me”
“Doin’ it Right”
“Crazy little thing called Love”
“Around the World”
“Beyond the Sea”
“My Own way to Rock”

In an effort to raise the funds to arrange and record the remaining 6 songs, I will be launching a crowd funding campaign at some point. The “Come Dance with Me” CD will be available for pre-purchase through the crowd funding website. All of my other recordings will be available for purchase at special prices during the campaign as well. You will also be able to order tickets to the CD release concert/dance.

I hope you will be able to participate in my crowd funding campaign with your donation or pre-purchase of my new CD. Most of the crowd funding and CD release announcements will be conducted through social media and email. Please sign up on my email list so I can keep you up to date on the progress of the CD and the release party/dance. I will also post updates on my website as this project progresses.
