Catalogue Number: ACQCD7071
Hugo Winterhalter was a saxophonist, composer, arranger and conductor who was a major figure in easy listening music in the post-war decades. Born in 1909 he was a sideman and arranger for Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Raymond Scott and Claude Thornhill, and arranged hit recordings for Dinah Shore and Eddie Fisher. He was music director successively for the MGM, Columbia and RCA labels during the ’40s & ‘50s, working with a host of major artists, arranging and producing their hits, as well as recording a string of top class and extremely popular orchestral albums under his own name. This collection, which follows the pattern set by our successful collections of work by Billy May and Percy Faith, brings together a great value 4-CD anthology of his recordings and arrangements over a prolific two decades and more, comprising recordings by the great names with whom he worked, such as Billy Eckstine, Dinah Shore, Tony Martin, Rosemary Clooney, Eddie Fisher, Kay Starr, Perry Como, Doris Day, The Ames Brothers and many others, as well as his own recordings.
