SDBob Recordings has a new hoedown based on the classic song “Alley Cat”. We went with a Jazz/Swing arrangement so we are calling this “Jazzy Cat Hoedown”.
In this Covid-19 world we all need some cheer and this new hoedown gets people to toe tapping and smiling.
“Alley Cat”, is a popular instrumental song made most famous by the Danish pianist and composer Bent Fabric, released in 1962. Fabric (born Bent Fabricius-Bjerre) wrote the tune under the pseudonym Frank Björn.
The song was originally released in November, 1961, under the Danish title “Omkring et flygel,” which means “Around a Piano.” In 1962, the Bent Fabric composition reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number two on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. In Australia, it went to number two. It also won a Grammy Award for Best Rock & Roll Recording during the 5th Grammy Awards. It sold over one million copies and was awarded a gold disc.
This hoedown was recommended by caller Jeff Garbutt, Bunbury, Western Australia.
