About the Artist

Despite all his wonderful, soft, mellow, big band hits over the years, German composer, producer and artist, Bert Kaempfert is best known in many circles still as the man who first discovered, signed and produced a record by four young Englishmen from Liverpool, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best with singer, Tony Sheridan.Beyond discovering talent, Kaempfert was quite an enormous talent, in his own right, as a multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, record producer, and particularly a songwriter. The song that made the name, Bert Kaempfert, a household term at the top of the best-selling charts, was the 1961 instrumental, "Wonderland by Night," which established him as a worldwide hit-maker.
