The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra starring Warren Covington - Tea for Two Cha Chas (1960)


This is an album I've had for awhile - bought it in the late 1980s when I first started ballroom dancing. I noticed that I bought a lot of cha cha albums back then - probably because it was my favorite of the dances that I was doing. When I bought this one, the only thing I saw was "Tommy Dorsey", who I knew about because of my mother's big band influence on me. Then I saw that Tommy Dorsey himself was no longer around and that his orchestra was being conducted by someone else. So I was disappointed when I found that out but I thought I'd listen to the album anyway. I loved it! I had heard "Tea for Two Cha Cha" on the radio, but I never knew who played it - until I bought the record. So I was very pleased with my purchase after all and thoroughly enjoyed all the songs on this album. It was just perfect for practicing my cha cha at home, and it remains one of my favorites to this day.
