Caterina Valente singing  The Breeze And I.
Caterina Valente (b. January 14,  1931, Paris, France) was born into an  Italian circus family. Her mother was a  clown and her father was an accordion  player; as a child she worked in the  circus as well. She performed in Europe  as a singer for several years, but her  career as an internationally known  vocalist began in 1953 when she joined  Kurt Edelhagen's band in Germany. She  was soon signed to Polydor and made her  recording debut for them the same year.  Her first big hits came soon after that. Two songs written for her by Cuban  composer Ernesto Lecuona charted in  Europe and eventually England and the  U.S. "Malaguena" was her first big hit,  followed by "Analucia" which when  re-released in an English version as  "The Breeze and I" became a top ten hit  in both the U.K. and the U.S.

MsBelsito: ~ Ms.Marisa Belsito in DiBerardino La Vera Voce ~ Internazionale Sun Ray I am glad I became aware of this person through someone else of a very seasoned also and known singing ability within an international sense. Would you kindly not jump to any conclusions about me.

hydropolite: i/m not sure when this song came out but i associate it with summer circa 1955 - the most popular summer song recently is Umbrellas by Rihanna - when it comes to pop culture (especially music) the new millenium is a COMPLETE RIPOFF ....
fulteacup: Listening to this makes you grateful to be alive.
primohomme: This song really shows her amazing range and beautiful voice, I'm a 21 year old and just discovered this wonderful singer!
jay capp: Great Song by Caterina Valente. I think that it goes back to the 1950's. It has always been one of my favorites.
dormantone: This and "Poinciana" are among her very best, which is saying quite a lot, I think! I've had no luck at all finding her version of "Poinciana" though ... anybody have any ideas? I'd really love to have that, too.
lMistaLegiit: Upload it to MediaFire and put it in the description ;D
