Caterina Valente is a superstar. She sold German Schlager records by the million, starred in countless musicals, movies, and television shows, and sang in several different languages. In 1990 she fulfilled a personal ambition when she recorded the 'American Songs' by Kurt Weill, accompanied by the WDR Big Band, conducted by Jerry Van Rooyen (from the Netherlands), and featuring Roger Kellaway on piano and
Terry Clarke on drums. The eight songs prove how perfectly Caterina Valente could interpret Weill's compositions. It's sheer exuberance, and Kellaway's arrangements are tailor-made for her. Another landmark in a long and distinguished career!
