• Leroy HOLMES - The Sophisticated Strings and Arrangements of…

Leroy Holmes was an American songwriter, composer, arranger and conductor. This is a 'must listen' for those who are after the sweep of lustrous violins, muted cellos and the vibrant darkness of violas.

You will hear on this collection a cleverly balanced program of arrangements covering five original LPs, Which highlight glorious string sections, big band themes, a selection of Spanish songs, movie themes and a tribute to the great Ray Charles.

The musical taste and imagination of Leroy Holmes is self-evidently displayed in an appealing fashion on these 60 tracks. Many of these songs may set toes to tapping, as this CD set is made for pure musical enjoyment, and to be savoured as one would a fine wine.
