Harry Nilsson:A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night

    A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night (73) is an album of classic 20th century standards performed by Harry Nilsson and Sinatra arranger Gordon Jenkins. 
    The album is produced by Derek Taylor. 
    This album is notable in being a standards album produced decades 
    before standards albums started to become popular. 
    The album met with modest chart success but is often 
    regarded as the finest example of Nilsson's virtuosic singing.


    My speciality is my knowledge in standards and popular music for Tin Pan alley to today. I am hearing a lot of standards songs ( i am can tell you most of the time terrible version). This is the best album of standards i ever heard and i have a hudge admiration for Nilsson.He Has been the best crooner since the 70's.
    You know of course 2 very popular songs of Nilsson: Without you and Everybody's Talkin'. But you didn't hear a lot about is virtuose ability to sing songs from the " Great american songbook". His is one of my favorite singer. You may be think this is strange for a jazz specialist, how is working on jazz compilation since 10 years - But i do.
    This album is simply one of the 10 best i know: 
    "A little Touch of Schmilsson in the night".
