There’s A Small Hotel

“There’s a Small Hotel” – A careful selection of timeless romantic songs recorded with style, simplicity and grace. This album, David’s first, reflects his reputation as Hollywood’s “violinist to the stars”.





Song List

David writes:
1 – “I’m in the Mood for Love” – a beckoning call to romance,  sugar sweet.
2 – “Isn’t It Romantic” – my tribute to Fred Astaire.
3 – “La Vie En Rose” – perhaps the greatest Parisian song ever.
4  “Are You Lonesome Tonight” – this is how Elvis might have sounded if he played the violin.
5 – “Don’t Blame Me” – “blame all your charms that melt in my arms…”
6 – “My Funny Valentine” – probably the most beloved love song of all.
7 – “O Sole Mio” – no song I know of expresses longing as this one does.
8 – “Endless Love” – inspired by the Diane Ross/Lionel Richie’s  contribution to contemporary pop.
9 – “Moon River” – Henry Mancini’s chef-d’oeuvre.  Sweet,  sad, beautiful.
10 – “Swan Lake” – the timeless theme from the ballet given a light samba beat.
11 – “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” – a haunting, reverent and powerful song.
12 – “Embraceable You” – they don’t write ’em like this any more.
13 – “Under Paris Skies” – what song expresses the wonder of Paris more than this one ?
14 – “There’s a Small Hotel” – You want romance? Play this track.
15 – “Return to Sorrento” – dark, debonaire and oh, so Italiano!
16 – “Romance in F” – a classy little piece by the pianist and composer Anton Rubenstein.
17 – “Starting Over” – after all these great songs, you just may want to start over.
