The mid-twentieth century was a great era for the popular song. The golden age of movie musicals brought us classics like “Over the Rainbow” and “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” At the same time, the sophisticated jazzy tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and many more captivated listeners. A few years later, great artists like Etta James, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder brought us one gem of a song after another, each one woven into the fabric of the lives of all who lived through those dynamic times.
Little Doors is a musical group that wanders through this seemingly endless canon of great songs, gathering tunes like shells on the beach and taking them home to enjoy again and again. Simply presented with vocals, guitar and upright bass, these songs take the listener to a place in their past; a place of nostalgia evoking forgotten joys or heartaches, sometimes with a fresh appreciation that comes from having been away from an old friend for too long.
