LOUNGE CENTRAL: THE BROADWAY BIT ~ 1959!

LOUNGE CENTRAL: THE BROADWAY BIT ~ 1959!

MARTY PAICH

ANOTHER COOL DOWNLOAD FROM KELLY’S LOUNGE SOUNDZ . . .


Marty Paich takes on nine Broadway tunes from the '50s – but as always with his best work, the result is something quite far from its roots – an amazing batch of jazzy instrumentals that owes very little to the original conception of the tunes. Paich's got an incredible ear for arrangements here – one that manages to make an ensemble swing with even more dynamic modes than some of his '50s LA contemporaries, but never in ways that fall into some of the more hi-fi oriented tricks or gimmicks of the time.

I was barely born when Marty did this work, but I ended up working for him, and studying with him, across the last ten years of his incredible life. You can't imagine what it was like to sit beside the man Johnny Williams said "had the best ears in the business".

Absolutely true.

I'm really glad you like this album. Still fresh after all these years.
