The Ray Conniff HI-FI Companion

"Over the last few years Ray Conniff has made a name for himself as one of the foremost conductor-arrangers of our time, dynamic, highly imaginative and equally skilled in handling voices and instruments. As this truly delightful album demonstrates, he has struck out along bold new paths; he has explored the fields of colour and texture with such effect that he has attracted a host of imitators who are unable to conjure up his magic but are conscious that he has recreated the essence of popular music."

First record: Side 1

You Do Something To Me (Weller)
They Can't Take That Away From Me (Carey)
Hello Young Lovers (Sparks)
Where Or When (Rodgers & Hart)
All The Things You Are (Kern)
People Will Say We're In Love (Rodgers & Hammerstein)

First record: Side 2

On The Streets Where You Live (Loewe-Lerner)
Moonlight Serenade (Miller-Parish)
The Way You Look Tonight (John-Taupin)
As Time Goes By (Hupfeld)
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (Kern-Harbach)

Second record: Side 1

Cheek To Cheek (Sahara Hotnights)
Thanks For The Memory (Wentz-Stump-Hurley-Tohrman)
Easy To Love (Hess-Bray)
Laura (Hoffman-Sellards)
It Might As Well Be Spring (Rodgers-Hammerstein)
Warsaw Concerto (Addinsell)

Second record: Side 2

I Could Have Danced All Night: I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face (Loewe-Lerner)
An improvisation on "Liebestraum" (Liszt)
An improvisation on "Dance Of The Sugar-Plum Fairy" (Tchaikovsky)
Young At Heart (Dallin-Fahey-Woodward-Hodgens)
In The Still Of The Night (Coverdale-Sykes)
I'll See You Again (Coward)

BET 101 - (p) 1958

Some of the writing credits may not be real, just seeing if anyone's paying attention! Or maybe Ray Conniff really did cover Paul Weller, Mariah Carey, Sparks, Elton John, Birdland, Sahara Hotnights, Fallout Boy, Scissor Sisters, Bananarama and Whitesnake!!!

Basie Meets Bond

" Basie Meets Bond"- here indeed is a memorable meeting - a summit meeting, if you please. COUNT BASIE - Wiliam Basie from Red Bank, New Jersey - is certainly a true giant in the world of popular music. Thousands upon thousands of pages have been devoted to the Count's contributions to the scene over the past several decades. However, in this collection, the Count and his men are even more spirited, more swinging, more youthful and more imaginative than ever before.

Ragtime - Tommy Burton and The Sporting House Club

Tommy Burton is, and has been for many years, a living legend on the West Midlands and Northern music scene. He has that stamp that separates a star from a performer: individuality.

Magic Of The Minstrels

"Here they go again- one of the most remarkable phenomena to appear on the British show business scene for many, many years - the Black and White Minstrels! What makes them so remarkable - indeed unique? Well, in the first instance, it is incredible that a minstrel show should have taken this country by storm in an age when this form of entertainment was generally considered a relic of the past. It has been suggested by a few cynics that black faced minstrels are out of place in these days of more enlightened attitudes towards the coloured races - but this theory presupposes that the minstrel show is detrimental or derogatory to coloured folk, and certainly The Black and White Minstrels cannot be accused of any such approach. Anyone who is looking for political overtones in a situation such as this must, I feel, be deliberately striving to provoke trouble - and, happily, such complaints are restricted to a meagre few."

Tango Time - Malando and his Orchestra

No-one knows why - least of all himself - why Arie Maasland, as Dutch as the bulbfields, the wooden shoes and windmills of tourist-poster fame, should have taken to Latin-American music so completely and so successfully that in Argentina, the land of the tango, he is regarded as the best tango composer in the world. Arie Maasland - Malando to the world of light music, has never been to Argentina. "Somehow I've never got down to it", he says, "I've been too busy, but I hope to go there someday."

The Sweet Sounds Of Tijuana

The sound of Tijuana music is the sound of sunshine music that is gay, lively and filled with the kind of happiness that only The Border Brass can convey. The titles are a recommendation in themselves for musical enjoyment, having been penned by talents like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Nino Rota, Jim Webb and John Barry.

But more than the greatness of the compositions themselves is the pure musical enjoyment that The Border Brass put into every track. It's as infectious as as the sound of border sunshine and once it's been sampled there's only one thing to do - and that's to sample it again and again.

World Wide TV and Movie Hits/ Broadway Hit Parade

More and more of the greatest tunes being composed today are being written for the screen - and not just the big screen of the cinema, the small TV screen has inspired some truly wonderful tunes too. The film industry is one of the biggest employers of musical talent of all descriptions, and it gives composers the opportunity to express gifts of melody on a grand scale. No other idiom could provide such scope for composers and arrangers who enthusiastically welcome the use of large-scale orchestras which demand rich and colourful arrangements.

Younger Than Springtime - Percy Faith & His Orchestra

Percy Faith is one of the best arrangers working today. And for good reason. Percy has the unique capability to prove and feel the heart of a musical composition. And he has the talent to express the intent of the composer.
