NELSON RIDDLE - CHANGING COLOURS
Nelson Riddle for MPS from 1972.
Three in a row for the most perfect sound today kicking off with the lush strings of the Nelson Riddle Orchestra featuring compositions by Claus Ogerman,Tom Jobim,George Harrison and more topped off with three beauties from Mr Riddle himself.
High brow pop/mor rather than jazz this will really appeal to the lounge lovers among you.Personally I can't get enough of "Lamento", "Sao Paulo","My Life" and "Changing Colours" although I have to draw the line at "Close to You" and "My Sweet Lord" !
Give it a listen and see what you think-goes down well with a cocktail on the beach in the sunshine.I'll have to make do with a pint of lager in a beer garden this afternoon !
