‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’ is the classic written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen and features that iconic brass intro that just paints a picture of Las Vegas in your mind.
Peter Andre wears many hats; the reality television star hat, the businessman hat, the avid charity supporter hat and the mainstream singer hat amongst others.
He has been gracing the music charts since the nineties with his debut self-titled album release appearing in May 1993 (the year this writer was born).
Well twenty-two years later and Andre has returned with a brand new album entitled ‘Come Fly With Me’, which is inspired in part by the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth.
The opener ‘Fly Me To the Moon’ is well produced by Nick Southwood (Oscar-nominated for the song ‘Lost Stars’ which was performed by Adam Levine, Maroon 5 and Keira Knightly) and you can tell that he has thought about how the arrangements will blend with Andre’s voice.
I see both sides of it, on one hand he wants to do justice to the original but on the other he wants to put his Andre stamp on it so it doesn’t sound like every other version which is incredibly tricky on an album made up mainly of covers.‘Mack The Knife’ will most definitely be a live favourite when Andre tours this album in 2016 and the band consisting of Adrian Meehan (drummer), Adam King (bassist) and Rich Milner (keyboardist) really keep the groove going.
