Spanish Spectacular

Now with “Phase X” technology. Grand Award records are usually worth picking up, and this one is no exception. Led by the prolific Charles Magnante, this record also features Dick Hyman on piano and George Barnes on guitar. The arrangements are interesting and varied, and the other musicians on this record compliment Magnante’s playing very nicely on these standards. From the jacket: “This is music that calls for performers with zest, with verve, with flair for the grand gesture. All of these attributes abound in the orchestra that Charles Magnante leads.”
