Dean Martin Chats With The Orchestra

Dean Martin is chatting with his orchestra during a break. The year is 1958 and the place is Las Vegas. I'm not sure if this is a recording session or a rehearsal for his act. I would love to have been one of the guys there. It would be cool to have been able to talk with Dino. I wonder what sorts of things were on his mind. He always seemed like he would be a fun guy to work with.

I'll bet Dean made his sessions a lot of fun. Knowing his sense of humor and casual style, it would have been a pleasure to work with him!

Hang in there Keith. I agree, it's tough all around the world. But like you, I'm just happy to be working :-)

Keith said...

Thanks Gabbi. I bet he was really cool to work with. I would have loved that.

Keith said...

Hey Terence. Thanks. I really like it too. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Veronica. Thanks. I agree. I think he would have been much funner to work with than Sinatra. It just seems that he would have made work much fun.

I'd love to be one of them, but I can't play a lick.

Granted it was a photo (and not say the perspective a fly on the wall might have when the camera wasn't firing away), but I think it really looks like the orchestra is having a terrific time. I'd be all smiles too if I had the chance to work with Deano! :)


Thank you very much for your lovely comments on my blog, Keith. I hope you have a fantastic day!

♥ Jessica

Thanks Phoebe. I played a little piano and guitar when I was younger, but that's been ages.

Keith said...

And musicians typically like a drink or two, so I'm there would have been some quality boozing done between takes...

Very nice. Here's a photo I thought you could use.

He's making sure they add the correct amount of swing to the number...

Keith said...

Hey Dave. I hadn't thought of that. Wow. I bet there was definitely some drinkin' involved between Dino and his orchestra. I definitely would love to have been part of that gang. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Robert. Thanks. That's a great photo. I appreciate it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Liz. I think it would have been so much fun to work with Dino. Glad you agree. Cheers!
