Remembering Toni Arden
Big band singer Toni Arden passed away on May 29. She was 88. Toni’s real name was Antoinette Ardizzone. She started recording in the 1940’s with a lot of bands, including Frankie Laine. Her only major hit was Padre in 1958, which was also her only million seller. The song I have chosen is a good showpiece for her voice and is typical of the early 50’s. Good song. Hope you enjoy.
