Percy Faith and His Orchestra – Younger Than Springtime

Sleeve Notes:

Percy Faith is one of the best musical arrangers working today. And for good reason. Percy has the unique capability to prove and feel the heart of a musical composition. And he has the talent to ex-press the musical intent of the composer. A master at his trade, Percy arranges small group or full orchestra with the unbridled enthusiasm of the very best.

He impeccably transcribes classics to gain total respect from the more con-servative older long hairs. Percy makes Broadway scores memorable and bright as he combines stir-ring melodies with just the right beat.
This record of orchestral arrangements is a prime example of Percy Faith’s ability to search out and score the real worth of quality music.
Listen to Percy’s arrangement of Begin the Beguine. Perhaps for the very first time you begin to appreciate its hidden well of intricacies and nuances . . . without missing any of the obviously beautiful and thrilling melodic highlights of this Cole Porter classic.
Tune yourself into Percy’s unforgettable reading of Summertime, from George Gershwin’s folk-opera :’Porgy and Bess.”
Peter De Rose’s Deep Purple—originally crafted as a piano solo—has never been performed as eloquently as Percy’s tasteful scoring.
Laura—the spell-binding beauty, brought to musical life by David Raksin—becomes more memorable and totally unforgettable when portrayed by the impressionable Mr. Faith.
The light-hearted Richard Rodgers—of Rodgers and Hart—and the more mature Richard Rodgers—of Rodgers and Hammerstein, is represented by admiration-laden Faith-filled arrangements of three standards: Where Or When (from “Babes In Arms”) and Some Enchanted Evening and Younger Than Springtime (from “South Pacific”).
Frederick Loewe’s magnificent score for “Camelot” is doubly blessed with singularly fine keep-sake Percy Faith arrangements of I Loved You Once In Silence and If Ever I Would Leave You.
Prepare yourself for a unique and fully-listenable experience. You will discover again why Percy Faith is one of the best and most requested arrangers on the music scene today.
