Johnny Mathis is the debut studio album by vocalist Johnny Mathis that was released by Columbia Records in 1956. The subtitle A New Sound in Popular Song can be found on the back cover but not on the front of the album or the disc label; in fact, this Mathis LP has been referred to as "the jazz album". Once in a While was one of the four original songs Madeleine Peyroux released on her third solo album "Half the Perfect World. It was the third and last single from that album. The tune, considered one of the highlights of the album, was written by Joe Harris, producer Larry Klein and Peyroux herself.
Once in a While is an album by American pop singer Johnny Mathis that was released on May 23, 1988, by Columbia Records and found him returning to the practice of covering contemporary hits but also mixing in lesser-known songs already recorded by other artists along with a few new ones ("Daydreamin'", "From a Whisper to a Scream", "Two Strong Hearts").
John Royce "Johnny" Mathis (born September 30, 1935) is an American singer of popular music. Starting his career with singles of standard music, he became highly popular as an album artist, with several dozen of his albums achieving gold or platinum status and 73 making the Billboard charts to date. According to Guinness Music Chart historian Paul Gambaccini, Mathis has sold well over 360 million records worldwide, making him the third biggest selling artist of the 20th century.

In 1989 Johnny Mathis recorded the album by the same name and it was done in the Doo Wop sound of the fifties and early sixties. This sound always had background groups, singing some harmony, in usually deep tones. It became known as the Doo Wop sound because those words (Doo Wop) were sung in the backgrounds of many of the songs. Back in 56/57/58/59/60 when I was a young Disc Jockey in Bakersfield California KGEE 1240, I played as much of Johnny Mathis that I could get away with when on the air. Never a bad interpretation by Johnny of everything he recorded.
