  1. I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles
  2. Just One Of Those Things
  3. Gone With The Wind
  4. When Your Lover Has Gone
  5. And The Angels Sing
  6. Blues For Beverly
  7. Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
  8. Begin The Beguine
  9. Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise
  10. I'll Remember April
  11. Paradise
  12. Stella By Starlight
In A Tender Mood

Ideal as sheer listening pleasure, perfect for dancing, IN A TENDER MOOD displays conductor-composer-arranger Gordon Jenkins' deft, distinctive touch as its very finest. Under his skilled leadership, the orchestra and chorus (comprising some of the West Coast's best musicians and singers) respond sensitively to the mood of each of these popular classics. Swirling strands of orchestral and choral sounds make such favorites as the carefree Just One of Those Things, scorchy, torchy When Your Lover Has Gone, bittersweetly sentimental Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo, sizzling Paradise and the delicate Stella by Starlight sound spring-fresh once again.

In addition to being the first conductor-arranger to mingle instruments and voices successfully, Gordon was the first to demonstrate that the orchestra of a Broadway musical need not simply line out the melody being sung on stage. Though a native of Webster Groves, Missouri, he is composer of music and lyrics for what has come to be considered the ne plus ultra of musical portraits of New York, "Manhattan Towers", as well as prolific writer of such hits as "San Fernando Valley", "P.S. I Love You" and "Blue Prelude". The present album's delightful Blues for Beverly is further testament of his composing gifts.

When you enter the world of Gordon Jenkins, you explore an exciting realm of musical splendor. Listen...Dance...IN A TENDER MOOD...
