John Wilson Orchestra plays Paul Weston arrangements
on 28 October 2012
This CD is a real treat for those who love the sound of either the John Wilson Orchestra or Paul Weston. Paul's son Tim brought these arrangements of his father's to John Wilson so that the lovely evergreen melodies could be recorded in stereo with a much bigger orchestra than Paul could muster for the recordings. And what a treat it is! Paul Weston often used to emphasize a particular instrumentalist in his arrangements against the orchestral background, and John Wilson's orchestra has done the same. The arrangements here are unmistakably those of Paul Weston but given the crisp modern John Wilson sound. Thanks to Michael Dutton at Vocalion (a Dutton Laboratories label) there are nearly 70 minutes of romantic music here from 23 tunes that most listeners of that era will know.
