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 2019. 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 5 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 2019. 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”
