Today 1923 Bert Kaempfert born

Bert Kaempfert was born Oct 16, 1923 in Hamburg, Germany and died Jun 21, 1980 in Switzerland.
He was one of the most successful conductors, arrangers, and recording artists in the latter field, but was also a major producer and played a key (if indirect) role in the roots of the British beat boom of the early '60s, which evolved into the British Invasion of America in 1964.
He arranged, produced, and recorded an instrumental entitled Wonderland by Night which was pretty enough but couldn't seem to get a hearing in Germany, even from his own company. Instead, Kaempfert and his wife brought the track to Milt Gabler, the legendary producer at Decca Records in New York, who arranged for its release in America in 1959; with its haunting solo trumpet, muted brass, and lush strings, the single topped the American pop charts and turned Bert Kaempfert and his orchestra into international stars.
To the Americans, the rest is history.....
