The UEFA euro football cup 2008 will certainly have many highlights. The singing of the national anthems though won’t be one. What football players do best is playing football – not singing national anthems.
If you love football and big band jazz you should get yourself Stan Kenton’s “National Anthems Of The World”. You can download it on iTunes. While the football players are trying to sing their national anthems you can turn down the volume of your tv set and play Stan Kenton’s versions instead.
“National Anthems Of The World” was recorded in 1972 and arranged by Robert Curnow. It was issued as a double LP by the Creative World label (ST-1060). If you’re a vinyl lover, get your copy at GNP Crescendo.
