Chip Deffaa

This week’s free song download comes from the newest in a a series of albums that Chip Deffaa has curated, An Irving Berlin Travelogue.

As its title suggests the recording takes you on a musical trip, culling together some 29 of Berlin’s songs. Each pays tribute to a different location in his unique way.

The first portion of the recording concentrates on places in the United States, and here you’ll find songs such as “There’s a Girl in Arizona,” “I’ve Gotta Go Back to Texas,” and “I’m Down in Honolulu.” Deffaa cleverly uses “International Rag” to shift the focus of Travelogue, and after this the songs look to places well beyond America. “Montmarte,” “From Here to Shanghai,” and “Hurry Back to My Bamboo Shack” are just three of the delights that you’ll find in this section.

After the musical excursion abroad, Deffaa, once again being quite clever, uses “Homesick” to navigate back to the States, and it’s from the last section of the disc that we’ve picked our free song. The track is “I Beg Your Pardon, Dear Old Broadway,” a merry apology offered to the Great White Way. Jackson Demott Hill and Alex Dreier’s voices blend splendidly on this merry little number, and I think it’s a fantastic example of the joys that you will find on Irving Berlin’s Travelogue.

After you’ve downloaded “I Beg Your Pardon,” you can sample from other cuts on the recording and purchase it by clicking here.
