“Frenesi” – Artie Shaw And His Orchestra (1940)

Just in time for Valentine’s Day–a touch of romance from Artie Shaw.

In 1939, Artie Shaw was the highest ,U.S.,  grossing performer–earning, in today’s money, 1 million dollars a week. Even so, his personality remained irascible and grumpy.

For comparison and contrast use only.  From the French Chronological Classics CD series.
