 Notes & Reviews
It was awesome. I will purchase anything with him and his orchestra. It electrifies me and excites me emotionally and spiritually everytime I hear my favorite one 'Melancholy Serenade' Wow!!

Ten years ago, I never thought I'd buy anything this 'easy-listening'. Turns out, I never knew what I was missing. Though these pieces (the term'songs' doesn't do them justice) are certainly easy on the ears, they are definitely not simple by any means. The lush orchestration is as complex as a good novel or a good cocktail, but without ever being maudlin. To top it off, Jackie hired only the best musicians, so when you hear a trumpet playing a melody you've heard a thousand times before, it's a brand new experience because of the musician's nuances.
- William West, 12/07/1997, USA

This 2-CD set contains 40 digitally remastered tracks; lush orchestral arrangements of timeless standards - Jackie Gleason style - meant to be enjoyed with red wine or brandy (cocktailers be warned: this is NOT martini music). Jackie Gleason collectors (yes, there are quite a few) will appreciate the previously unreleased tunes, and fans will appreciate the quality of the package. Highlights: 'From Russia with Love,' 'Days of Wine And Roses,' 'Misty,' 'A Taste of Honey,' 'The Girl from Ipanema,' 'Moon River' and much more.
