About the project:
Source: A Tribute to Fred Astaire
Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz; May 10, 1899 – June 22, 1987) was an American dancer, singer, actor, choreographer and television presenter. As well as being the 30th anniversary of the death of probably the world’s most eminent dancer, 2017 is also the 70th anniversary of Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Co-founded by this exceptional artist in 1947, the chain now boasts 170 franchised studios around the world.
For this album Rainer C. Regatschnig, Wolfgang Lohr and Justin Fidèle teamed up in order to explore how the original songs of Fred Astaire would sound with a contemporary arrangement and sung by some of the most energetic and still sensitive singers of nowadays.

Alexander’s brilliant cover of “Fever”
A long awaited recording and music video of Alexander’s brilliant version of the classic jazzy song “Fever”.
D’Dorian, who features Alexander in this song is Knut Bjørnar Asphol, who has produced several of Alexander’s earlier released songs.
“Fever” was one of the songs Alexander performed in “Kjempesjansen”, and it was also on his playlist on his Christmas tour “Swinging home for Christmas” in 2010.
“Fever” was recorded first time in 1956, and has since then been covered by numerous artists from various musical genres. You can read more about the song on Wikipedia.
