Roberto Carlos – Mr Sandman

Roberto Carlos Louco por Voce

Largely thanks to my daughter, I’ve become mildly obsessed with the frothy 50’s pop confection, Mr Sandman.

Though it’s the original Chordettes version that the younger generation seems to favour, those with time-honed digging skills might prefer readings by Anita O’Day, Chet Atkins or even this charming 1961 Brazilian interpretation.

Ditching the melancholic underpinnings, Roberto Carlos (assisted by Astor and his Orchestra) rips through the piece in fine jazz/bossa style.

Lovely!
