Presenting Mr. Arranger, Ray Martin, and the Living Brass in another exciting north/south, pop/traditional musical adventure through the world of sound. The colors are red and gold, muted sometimes by the oranges of twilight There’s a Kind of Hush (All Over the World) or injected with hot, bright canary – Carmen gone pop. It’s a daring mix….Zabadak, for example, is an African tune which adapts easily to a Mexican mood. Lady of Spain is traditional black lace. London Mod Petula Clark gave us The Other Man’s Grass Is Always Greener. Ray Martin created the wonderful Fiesta en Acapulco just for this album. The adventure goes on, but let the Living Brass carry you up and over – from the conventional into the realm of the alive, exciting sound of brass tuned to sunshine arrangements.
