Johnny Mathis Warm and Tender

Postby geoff85 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 5:44 pm

I find this song so innovative for 1957. Is Mathis singing tritones? What am i hearing? Anyway i wanted to know if Lieber and Stoller had a hand in the production. This song sounds like a Bacharach composition produced by them. Around 1957 Bacharach was one of the main assistant composers to Lieber/Stoller and hadnt yet really branched out. Any insight?

sounds eerily similar to this Lieber Stoller production the background singers vocals are haunting to the point of being scary(like wailing ghosts)

here is a good example of bacharch/david and lieber stoller collaboration for more reference

Fascinating hearing Jay and the Americans' 'Look In My Eyes, Maria'. The only other version I've heard of this song is by Cliff Richard.
