The Joy Of Living

Nelson Riddle presents twelve danceable, gently swinging reasons why it's great to be alive!

Life can be especially grand when good music is a part of it. Be it humming, whistling, or the sound of a lively orchestra, music adds a special spark of joy of living.

Here, arranger-conductor Nelson Riddle displays his matchless flair for dressing familiar tunes in a restful yet zestful style, rich with that spark! Twelve melodies, alread bright with exuberance, glow anew as he takes them soaring on a carefree ride. A light, muted trumpet propels them along at times; rich strings sail them forward at others, sometimes taking the lead, sometimes singing in the background.

It all happens with gentle lift and an easy bounce-brass or strings transporting most of the melody, met now and then by a way-faring flute, a guitar, or a happy trombone that barrels along-way bellow-adding humorous bass notes.

The whole joyous trip is filled with rare imagination, an all-fun mood, and the freshest kind of Riddle ideas-all combining to make The Joy Of Living a joy to hear!

  1. Thanks! i happen to have a 5-track version of this LP done for Schlitz beer in 1958 ("When you're out of Schlitz, you're out of beer"… Remember?! :-).
    It has "Know the Real Joy of Good Living" in a commercial (1:05) and a chorus (2:30) versions.
