More recently, Ferrante and Teicher have expanded their scope of action to encompass concert appearances from coast to coast, and the rousing ovations they receive from packed houses are a dramatic testimony to both their popularity and their performance.

There are, of course, many reasons for this well-earned and well-deserved success of Ferrante and Teicher, not the least of which is their impeccable musicianship, so very brilliantly showcased in the lush, string filled orchestrations which have become their trademark.

"THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF FERRANTE AND TEICHER" is the definitive exposition of this self-same trade mark. Here are even dozen superlative performances in the grand style that has made their fame and fortune. Share "THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF FERRANTE AND TEICHER" for it is a delightful world chock-full of the wonderful music that has made this talented team a household word throughout the globe.

Henry's Trumpets

Os pistões são uma das mais importantes partes da música.

Eles são - a parte mais importante de todos os conjuntos de música moderna que se prezam. São - a alma do som de todos os grupos instrumentais atuais. Foram - o som da época da grande orquestra e dos grandes solistas de pistão através dos anos. São - o som das passagens climáticas de uma orquestra sinfônica. São - a força de uma banda marcial ou de um maravilhoso concerto de banda. Na verdade, eles são - inúmeros e flexíveis sons num só; e daí a idéia deste disco.

A idéia principal foi realizar um disco utilizando os pistões de tal forma que se poderia agradar aos que dançam e aos que gostam apenas de ouvir e aos adultos e adolescentes, ao mesmo tempo. Para conseguir isso, selecionei cuidadosamente das canções de sucesso de hoje, as canções que eu senti pudessem vir a receber um tratamento instrumental único. Trabalhamos (eu e Hutch Davie) nos arranjos, de forma que os dez pistões pudessem mostrar algo de excepcional em forma de execução primorosa. O fundo orquestral é formado por um colchão de saxofones, madeiras, trombones, violinos, cellos e toda a orquestra é propulsionada por uma seção de ritmo dos mais quentes.

Portanto - seja você quem for e esteja onde estiver - espero que goste dos "PISTÕES DO HENRY"".

(Henry Jerome, extraído das notas originais do Lp)

Andre Kostelanetz and His Orchestra - Scarborough Fair And Other Great Movie Hits

  1. The Look Of Love (From "Casino Royale")
  2. Talk To the Animals (From "Doctor Dolittle")
  3. Laura
  4. Love Is Blue (L'Amour Est Bleu)
  5. I'll Get By (As Long As I Have You)
  6. The Bare Necessities (From "The Jungle Book")
  7. Scarborough Fair / Canticle (From "The Graduate")
  8. That Old Black Magic
  9. Stella By Starlight
  10. I'm In The Mood For Love
  11. Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing
Scarborough Fair

Asíde from the usual enormous pleasure you get from an Andre Kostelanetz album, there are some fun and games built in here, along with the sheer beauty of sweeping strings and rich orchestration.

For instance, before you read any further, see if you can name the movies that each of the songs were in. All right - how did you do? Eight out of eleven is very good and eleven out of eleven is nearly impossible because, just to make it difficult, one of them is not from a movie. At least not yet-but more about that later.

What makes for this puzzlement is the fact that many songs become standards so Iasting that you tend to forget the movies they were once a part of. Two prime examples: I'm In The Mood For Love, from "Every Night at Eight." and That Old Black Magic, the biggest tune from the Bing Crosby-Bob Hope extravaganza called "Star Spangled Rhythm."

Some of the songs will be easy to connect with a movie. They were included not to puzzle you but merely because they are great current hits: The Look of Love from "Casino RoyaIe," Talk to the Animals from "Doctor Dolittle" and The Bare Necessities from "The Jungle Book." The Iatter two are nominees for a 1967 Academy Award at this writing. And there's Scarborough Fair. from the hit motion picture “The Graduate."

The others may prove a little tougher if you are somewhat rusty on your cinema history. Laura is relatively easy as is Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing-if you remember their title is that of the movie. Who can forget Gene Tierney in the former and Jennifer Jones and William Holden in the latter.

Now things get a bit tougher. I'll Get By is from the Spencer Tracy-Irene Dunne picture "A Guy Named Joe." A rather touching morale-builder made during World War II. This one may have fooled you: Stella by Starlight is from "The Uninvited," starring Ray Mílland and Ruth Hussey. Remember?

The one song here that is not from a movie is the phenomenally popular Love ls Blue. It was one of the finalists (representing Luxembourg) in the Eurovision Contest, a TV song festival broadcast all over Europe in 1967. The main reason it is included is because it is one of the greatest songs in years-and if some Hollywood producer is smart. He will buy the title and song and build a movie around it. It is that powerful!

Throughout the album you have the big, dazzling, luminescent sound you have come to expect from Kostelanetz. By the way, his movie “sound stage" is at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York, famed throughout the world for its acoustical brilliance. You can hear it now.

  2. You're An Old Smoothie

It's The Talk Of The Town

Ray Conniff brought his chorus into the foreground for the first time on It's the Talk of the Town, and credited the album to the Ray Conniff Singers. Conniff's chorus is bright and cheery, unlike the immense-sounding Norman Luboff Choir or the comparatively stodgy Robert Shaw Chorale. But despite the high level of energy and enthusiasm, the choral format gives the album a throwback feel that is only amplified by material like "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" and the Gene Autry favorite "Buttons and Bows," although the latter is, admittedly, very good. The increased focus on the chorus comes at the expense of the instrumental arrangements, which are relegated to a supporting role well behind the voices. It's the Talk of the Town, more than any of Conniff's other vocal albums, treads a little too close to Mitch Miller territory for comfort.
