Notes and Editorial Reviews
When work for the day has been completed the Starlight Hours beckon. This is the time to unwind and relax - if you're lucky, in some pleasant company. An evening out may be in order: first an enjoyable meal, followed by some mellow moments simply letting the cares of the day fade away. Should you still have some energy left then why not seek out some late-night entertainment at a night club, or perhaps where some gentle jazz sounds are being carried along in the breeze. The music has been carefully sequenced to covey these impressions to those who simply want to relax at home, turn on the CD player, and let their imagination take over. To help with the illusion there are the fine orchestras of Percy Faith, Robert Farnon, Andre Kostelanetz, Morton Gould, Glenn Osser and David Rose. The many others include talented arrangers such as Laurie Johnson, Conrad Salinger and Angela Morley - all helping to create the perfect mood for your relaxation. - Guild Records
