After his first successful cd "As Time Goes By," pianist Raymond Kraemer is back. However, upon request by his fans, this time he sings some of the selections. Raymond not only plays and sings music that is easy to listen to, but also music that stirs the emotions and inspires you to dance, and maybe even sing along. As before, Raymond accompanies his piano and vocals with string bass and rhythm for a rich and full sound.
Raymond performs the songs that made Sinatra, Clooney, Bennett and others famous. He embellishes the melody with innovative chord structures, never straying too far from the melody. Raymond embraces you with medlodic souvenirs from the past.
So join him in remembering the music that is so much a part of our culture. To quote Raymond, "Nothing evokes a memory like a song."
