He was a great actor, but the Ken Peplows Quartet thought Charlie Chaplin made a pretty decent song composer too, making Track 3 on Memories Of You Vol. 2 a rendition of “Smile,” of which the lyrics tell the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. Chaplin isn’t the only musician honored on Vol. 2. George Gershwin, Michel Legrend, Eubie Blake and Raymond Hubbell are too recognized, hand-picked by the Quartet to pay tribute to in the remainder of the album’s tracks. The cream of the crop is his warm interpretation of Billy Strayhorn’s “Lotus Blossom”. This set is perfect for late-night listening.
