… or, if you prefer, "Moscow Nights" or "Midnight In Moscow."
About 20 years ago, I got it in my head that I wanted to listen to world radio, broadcasts over shortwave radio from such broadcasters as the BBC, Deutsche Welle, RTE, RAI, etc. One day, I found Radio Moscow, which, since I couldn’t understand Russian, I verified using Passport To World Band Radio. Had I waited a couple of minutes, their interval signal (kind of like station identification), this beautiful orchestral version of "Moscow Nights," would have done the trick.
Today’s battle will feature three versions of this lovely melody, all in different styles, after which I’ll ask for your favorite.
Contestant #1: Kenny Ball What they call "trad jazz" in the UK.
Contestant #2: The Ventures Surf, of course.
Contestant #3: Lazy Swing Gypsy style.
Those are our three contestants. This is where you come in…
