On holiday

Hey guys and dolls. I packed my suitcase, and I should be in London in exactly 12 hours. I'll back August the 8th.

I will try to update my blog as an London-diary - with pictures and etc. Don't expect too much. Let's see what happens.


Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren's first recording: Mambo Bacan from the movie La Donna Del Fiume (1955).

Sophia Loren - Mambo Bacan

Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren starred together in the 1960's movie The Millionairess.
While working on the film, Sellers fell in love with the great Italian beauty, and eventually left his wife Anne to pursue her; when it became clear that Loren wanted nothing to do with him, Sellers fell into an affair with her stand-in instead.

"Goodness Gracious Me", a duet between Sellers (as an Indian doctor) and Loren (as his patient), was released as a single to publicise the film, and became a chart hit.

Marlena Shaw
Marlena Shaw got her first break back in the late Sixties when she recorded a hit vocal version of the well-known jazz tune “Mercy Mercy Mercy.” From there, Marlena toured with Count Basie and, in 1972, apparently became the first female artist ever signed to Blue Note records. Although her early years were spent either on the lounge circuit or performing straight-ahead jazz, today Marlena is best known for her string of saucy, spicy, sassy and, of course, soulful R&B records.
