‘Crooner’ and ‘crooning’:
Crooners Echo. Named for that temperate, murmuring style, the well-recognizable opening arrangements. Of course the entrance of the microphone made much of this possible. Consider Louis Prima, Ray Charles, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole, Dr John & Professor Longhair, and oh yes our beloved Louis Armstrong. These are a few of the legends that undoubtedly shaped the significance of the term crooning.That was the memorable yet vivid past.
Crooners Echo, formed in Amsterdam admires those countless icons in popular & jazz music, reestablishing it in this pure, open form while having a great time doing what they love the most. Yes, untainted impulses, ecstatic responses. From rags to riches. And from dream makers to heartbreakers. Whatever will move your feet and wiggle your toes to leave your worries on the doorstep!
Their characteristic, fervent style connects story telling with genuine interpretation of all time classics of the fifties and sixties.
