Notes and Editorial Reviews
This collection takes its title from an attractive composition composed and played by the American maestro Herman Clebanoff, who was usually known only by his surname. He heads a roster of fine orchestras from the USA, including Frederick Fennell, Pete King, David Rose, Richard Hayman, Les Baxter, Xavier Cugat, Percy Faith and Paul Weston. But British orchestras are also well represented with great performances from two 'Cyrils' - Stapleton and Ornadel, plus Ray Martin, Robert Farnon, Norrie Paramor, Tony Osborne and Charles Williams. Not to be outdone, from mainland Europe we welcome Helmut Zacharias, Dolf van der Linden and Hans Georg Arlt - each and every one of them proving that the strings are certainly 'afire' in many of these tuneful melodies.
