The Happy Trumpeter composed by Bert Kaempfert in 1962, and released on the worldwide hit album - A Swinging Safari.
Performed in this recording by transgendered musician - Miss Denise Hewitt - on Technics Synthesizer Keyboard in 1980s Poly Synthesizer Mode.

I dedicate this recording to the memory of Bert Kaempfert - (born Berthold Kämpfert; 16th Oct 1923 21st June 1980). He was a musical genius - Composer and Band Leader - with a unique creative & compelling style!....
