Frank De Vol - Portraits (1958)



Everybody knows Frank De Vol, even if you don´t know him. He was one of the busiest composers of the 50´s and 60´s and wrote more than 50 movie scores ("Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", "Pillow Talk"). But it was his work for television, that made him famous, so he wrote the themes for series such as "My Three Sons" and "The Brady Bunch". He also worked as a band leader and arranger on recordings by Vic Damone, Doris Day and Tony Bennett. Here he is with some lush arrangements of standards you can relax by. Frank died in 1999.

Do you plan to post Enoch Light - Brass Menagerie Vol. 2 (1969) or I've just dreamed about that? :-)

Yes, but I have to rip it first. I thought I had, but you know, we´re all getting older...
