NOBODY DOES IT BETTER - Swing / Jazz standards / Crooners album (Release date: 29.11.2014)
The 16-track-CD is boldly entitled 'Nobody Does It Better' (#NobodyDoesItBetter) and mainly contains Moriz's modern versions of popular classic songs from the early 1930s to late 1940s:
Look out for gripping piano & voice arrangements of 'Smoke gets In Your Eyes' (Kern/Harbach) and 'My Funny Valentine' (Rodgers/Hart), two duets with the award-winning South African Jazz vocalist Monique Hellenberg (Goldfish): the title track 'Nobody Does It Better' (Hamlisch/Sager) and 'Skylark' (Mercer/Carmichael) as well as a retro-swing recording of 'Louisiana Fairytale' (Coots, Gillesoie, Parish).
Moriz also takes on Michael Buble's popular hit 'Home' as well as Cole Porters timeless compositions 'I've Got You Under My Skin' and 'C'est Magnifique' rounding the album off beautifully with a smokey rendition of Burt Bacharach's 'What the World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love'.
Ike's 15th studio album to date is not to be missed! (Mosquito Records London).
