Beautiful music can evoke sentimental memories … and Jackie Gleason has chosen the loveliest of ballads for his Music To Make You Misty… melodies whose nostalgic phrases bring back the tender moments of everyone’s romance. For Jackie Gleason has just the right touch … the deft touch that has already given best-selling popularity to two great albums — Music For Lovers Only and Lover’s Rhapsody. Now, in this presentation of favorite tunes, he appeals again to all the young in heart.
Two superb instrumental soloists are featured in this album, Bobby Hackett on trumpet and Toots Mondello on alto saxophone; the tasteful arrangements are by Sid Feller and Richard Jones. Their lyrical work is a tribute to Jackie Gleason’s fine musical taste. So here is Jackie conducting his orchestra in a splendid offering for your romantic listening pleasure.
