His and Hers

Charles Magnante and Laverne Smith
His and Hers

This 1950s recording pairs the electrifying accordionist Charles Magnante with the smoldering vocalist LaVergne Smith. Accompanied lightly by banjo, Magnante's virtuosic set ranges from "Twelfth Street Rag" and the tango "La cu cumparsita" to Chopin's "Minute Waltz." Smith's set of smoky vocal and piano duos recalls the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans' French Quarter and includes classics such as "Lover Man" and "Straighten Up and Fly Right."
