Wie wars mit Lissabon Comedian Harmonists Wie wars mit Lissabon Comedian Harmonists The Comedian Harmonists were an internationally famous, all-male German close harmony ensemble (5 singers plus pianist) that performed between 1927 and 1934. They were one of the most successful 20th century musical groups in Europe before World War II and were noted for using their voices to imitate musical instruments. The Comedian Harmonists were founded in Berlin-Friedenau in the flat of Harry Frommermann (Stubenrauchstraße 47). Today a commemorative plaque marks the spot.

Comedian Harmonists - Wenn der Wind weht [take 2] HMV master OD 490-2, rec. Berlin, 14 August 1931. Ari Leschnikoff (1st Tenor), Erich Collin (2nd tenor), Harry Frommermann (3rd tenor), Roman Cycowksi (baritone), Robert Biberti (bass), Walter Joseph (piano). This is a very rare alternate take (a few copies of this master were pressed accidentially at the German plant) of one of the few recordings the Harmonists made in the months when Erwin Bootz had temporarily left the group. The group reheased for a while with Bootz' Friend Fried Walter at the piano, but finally agreed on Walter Joseph as their new pianist (Fried Walter later played with the Humoresk Melodios and decades later wrote a beautiful arrangement of "Veronika, der Lenz ist da" for the King's Singers). Walter Joseph had several decades of experience with light music, playing for and together with Rudolph Nelson in the latter's various cabaret productions. Both sides were unhappy, though: Bootz' carreer did not take off in the way he expected, and the record company was not happy with Walter Joseph, for his comparatively big tone proved to be difficult to record. So Bootz finally returned to the Comedian Harmonists after only a few months of absence. It is not a hundred percent clear when Joseph recorded with the group, but there are four surviving recordings of this particular song (two in German, one in French and one in English), and on all four the piano part is absolutely identical. So I presume it is rather unlikely that this is Bootz playing, who never ...

Comedian Harmonists - Whispering (1934) The Comedian Harmonists were a German all-male close harmony ensemble that performed between 1927 and 1934 as one of the most successful musical groups in Europe before World War II. The group consisted of Harry Frommermann (tenor buffo), Ari Leschnikoff (first tenor), Erich Collin (second tenor), Roman Cycowski (baritone), Robert Biberti (bass), and Erwin Bootz (pianist). In 1927, unemployed actor Harry Frommermann was inspired by The Revelers, to create a German group of the same format. Frommermann held auditions in his flat, and once the group was assembled, quickly began rehearsals. After some initial failures, the Harmonists soon found success, becoming popular throughout Europe, touring the United States and appearing in 21 films. The group's success continued into the early 1930s, but eventually ran into trouble with the *** regime: three of the group members - Frommermann, Collin, and Cycowski - were either Jewish or of Jewish descent, and Bootz had married a Jewish woman. The regime progressively made the group's professional life more difficult, initially banning pieces by Jewish composers, but finally prohibiting them from performing in public, with their last concert being in Munich on March 25,1934. Frommermann, Cycowski, and Collin subsequently fled Germany and formed a new group, which performed under the names "Comedian Harmonists" and "Comedy Harmonists" with a new pianist, bass, and high tenor. The remaining members in Germany likewise replaced their ...

Comedian Harmonists - In einem kühlen Grunde [take 1] HMV master OD 739-1, rec. Berlin, 7 January 1932 Ari Leschnikoff (1st tenor), Erich Collin (2nd tenor), Harry Frommermann (3rd tenor), Roman Cycowksi (baritone), Robert Biberti (bass), Erwin Bootz (piano) The story of the Harmonists has been told many, many times, and I will not bore you by telling it again. But I hope you will be interested in this recording, for it has never been issued on LP or CD. When the test pressing of this famous song was to be okayed by the singers, they rejected it for technical reasons and wanted to redo it. At this point, the record company had to admit in a letter (dated 28 January) that 1000 copies had already been pressed and shipped. This is one of them. The remake that finally made it on all the other discs, and that can be heard on countless reissues, is take five - easily identified by one of the rare wrong notes played by Erwin Bootz in the intro. I wonder if the Harmonists at that point wished they had not ordered the first master to be destroyed?
Comedian Harmonists - Creole Love Call - a cappella instrumental multitrack - trudbol - Julien Neel Share on Facebook: My Facebook: My Twitter: An a cappella multitrack render of the "Creole Love Call". The Creole Love Call is a jazz standard recorded by Duke Ellington in 1927. This is a version arranged by the Comedian Harmonists, an internationally famous, all-male German close harmony ensemble that performed between 1927 and 1934 as one of the most successful musical groups in Europe before World War II. The original score requires a piano, so I had to change a few spots in the score. I also shortened it, because of the difficulty. I hope you'll enjoy! Thanks to Patrick AKA "Patryburner" for the help.
Comedian Harmonists, Tea for Two Comedian Harmonists, Tea for Two I'm discontented with homes that are rented, so I have invented my own; Darling this place is a lover's oasis, where life's weary chase is unknown. Far from the cry of the city where [the] flowers pretty caress the streams, Cosy to hide in, to live side by side in, don't let it abide in my dreams. Picture you upon my knee, just tea for two and two for tea, just me for you and you for me alone. Nobody near us to see us or hear us, no friends or relations on weekend vacations, we won't have it known, dear, that we own a telephone, dear. Day will break and you'll awake and start to bake a sugar cake for me to take for all the boys to see. We will raise a family, A boy for you, a girl for me, oh, can't you see how happy we would be.

Boss PS6 Harmonist The Boss PS6 Harmonist can perform any harmony or pitch shifting task thrown at it. 2 and 3-voice harmonies with easy settings for any major or minor key, plus pitch shift, chorusy detune, and perhaps the coolest feature, Boss's S-Bend effect, which lets you pull off outrageous pitch bends and warped tones just by using the on/off footswitch. Tracking in the Boss PS6 is excellent, and the Harmonist works beautifully with chords, great for those faux-organ sounds. Stereo outputs let you split the harmonies between two amplifiers or recording inputs, and the balance knob controls the mix between the dry and effected signals. For precise pitch control the Boss Harmonist's expression input gives you traditional octave up and down shifting. So whether you're looking for an intenlligent harmonizer or a compact pitch shifter, the Boss PS6 Harmonist has it covered at the lowest price around.

Comedian Harmonists / Paul Hörbiger: Bisschen dies und bisschen das (1931) - rare! Written by Werner Richard Heymann and Robert Gilbert, this song has never been released on a record! It was composed for the film "Her Grace Commands"/"Ihre Hoheit befiehlt" (1931) and appears three times during the film. First of all, it features a dancing episode starring Käthe von Nagy and Willy Fritsch, followed by the Comedian Harmonists performing it in a kitchen. Finally, Reinhold Schünzel and Paul Hörbiger sing this song with slightly different lyrics in an office scene. Script writer of this really funny movie was Billy Wilder. It's a shame that this film so far has never been released on DVD for public sale!!
Rockapella - Comedian Harmonists Medley (live) 24.05.2010 Dortmund, Germany
Hitch's Happy Harmonists - Boneyard Shuffle (1925) Hitchs Happy Harmonists, were a regional dance band from Evansville, Indiana. Hoagland Carmichael (1899 - 1981) grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. Hoagys mother, a pianist who played ragtime and dance music at college parties and who accompanied silent films, greatly influenced his piano playing and musical development. Hoagy began his jazz career while studying law at Indiana University. He began booking bands for college dances, started his own band (Carmichaels Collegians), and as a result, met and befriended jazz cornetist Bix Beiderbecke, who suggested that Hoagy write jazz compositions. He followed Bixs advice and wrote the song Free Wheeling for Bix and his band, the Wolverines, who recorded it as Riverboat Shuffle, at Richmonds Gennett studio in 1924. One year later, Hoagy made his first recordings in Richmond, featuring two of his original compositions, while sitting in with Hitchs Happy Harmonists. In 1927 Hoagy again ventured to Richmond to record an original composition titled Stardust, which has since become one of the most popular songs from Americas musical past. Hoagy made his final recordings for Gennett in 1928 with Carmichaels Collegians, but his lengthy career had only just begun. Hoagy continued to write many hit songs (Georgia on My Mind, Rockin Chair, Skylark, and Lazy River are among his most popular), starred in several films, and became a radio star, with a syndicated series broadcast on three networks. Hitch's Happy Harmonists (under direction ...
1935 JOSEPHINE BAKER & THE COMEDIAN HARMONISTS - Berlin meets Paris Josephine Baker made one record with the famous German COMEDIAN HARMONISTS a-capella group on September 29, 1935 for French Columbia. It includes a cover version from Baker's freshly released hit movie "Princess Tam Tam": Sous le Ciel d' Afrique. Eliseo Grenet's "Espabilate" is a Duetto Comico from his Zarzuela (Spanish Operetta) La Virgen Morena. It is NOT drawn from the 1942 movie of the same name. An odd choice. The original version of Sous le ciel d'Afrique: The b/w movie clip is from another song from Princess Tam Tam "Le chemin du bonheur" The tinted passages are from Josephine Baker's fabulous first movie, The Siren of the Tropics (1927). Complete Discography with sound samples of Josephine Baker: The COMEDIAN HARMONISTS were the most popular of a-capella ***tets, and their snappy and often ribald recordings are still appreciated and imitated. Founded in 1927 by unemployed singers in Berlin, the Comedian Harmonists quickly rose to international stardom; that is until the ***s banned the ***tet from performing in March 1934. The three Jewish members, Harry Frommermann, Erich Collin, and Roman Cycowski fled Germany and reformed under the name of "Comedy Harmonists". You can hear some great solos of Cycowski on this record. However, neither the exile Comedy Harmonists, nor the left-in-Germany Meister***tet (Herr Goebbels says "No Englische Namen, Danke schoen!"), ever made a true comeback, and both groups had falled ...

Columbia DF 1814 L 5463 - 1. Paris, August 1935. Eliseo Grenet Sánchez, (Havana 1893-1950) was a Cuban and leading composer arranger of the day. He composed music for stage shows and films and some famous Cuban dance music. In Barcelona (Spain), he directed the orchestra for the operetta "La Virgin Morena". Next in Paris (France), he directed the same work. When the new dance rhythm the Conga was all the rage in Europe and was making its first steps in the USA, Grenet returned to Cuba. Soon he went to New York and showed what this rhythm was about with Cuban dancers. His stay in Buenos Aires and other Latin American capitals was tremendous, but he could not revive on Broaway the succes he had in Madrid and Paris with "La Virgin Morena". From Wikipedia.
