Graffiti November 5, 2009 FUN-Raising continues

November 5, 2009

We’re still having fun FUN-raising!  Get used to it.  We’re doing it until the 15th.  Tonight, though we don’t have anyone in the studio with us,PA090089.JPG

Amalia Goros and I will be featuring the music of Tereza.  The big song from this disk is “Fly me to the Moon”.  Written by Bart Howard in 1954 the song was first recorded by Kaye Ballard then covered by many other great artists including Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, Julie London, Patti Page, Doris Day.  In 1969 (forgive me–a pun this good just can’t be ignored) it reached dizzying heights when astronaut Buzz Aldrin of Apollo 11 played the Frank Sinatra version as he walked on the moon.  On July 20th of this year the 40th anniversary of the moon walk was celebrated at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and to commemorate this historic event Diana Krall serenaded the three Apollo 11 astronauts with her version of the song.

In May 2003 Tereza released her version of this classic on the aptly titled Double cd: Fly Me To The Moon.  It was catapulted into the public arena when Cutty Sark picked it for their TV ad campaign that year.

The disk we’re offering at the $100.00 pledge level has this and many other great songs by Tereza in both Greek and English.  Though she grew up in New York her roots are Greek.
