Arranging and Recording “Dolannes Melody” by Jean-Claude Borelly
One of the more challenging things to do on a keyboard is to make it, well, not sound like a keyboard.
Since I wanted to see how my Yamaha MOXF8 could handle a good trumpet solo, and since it seems to be one of my dad’s favorite songs, I decided to track my own version of “Dolannes Melody”, by Jean-Claude Borelly.
“Dolannes Melody” topped the charts of most European countries during the mid 1970s, first in France, Switzerland, Belgium and then Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands. It was also in the first place in South America and later in Japan.
