"March" mystery

Found this on the net a number of years ago. Can't remember the singer, who also happens to be the brilliant Portuguese-to-Japanese translator. Anyone have a clue? Probably this recording was quashed due to the provision in ACJ's will: NO MORE TRANSLATIONS! He recorded them, but, nonetheless, is alleged to have hated nearly all of Lees and Gilbert's translations of his work. Perhaps---especially?---"ball" translated as "baby's bouncing toy." Overreaching a bit doncha think?
