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").
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.

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.

Mathis may still have jazz in his heart, but when that first album failed to chart, his magnificent voice was soon put in the hands of Columbia’s fast-rising pop music producer and their first effort together, the 1957 hit single Wonderful Wonderful, was the beginning of Mathis’ ascent to the top of charts and his status as ubiquitous beloved American balladeer. I was a little anxious about the fact that I was alone for the first time. I had spent years in my home base, which was San Francisco, and I was in a band with Merl Saunders beginning when I was about 13. He played piano and I sang and it was big deal. We used to dream, Which one of us is going to get signed first?
