Welcome to Dutton Vocalion
Our Christmas release

Vocalion presents a traditionally bumper crop of titles for our Christmas release. There’s a wide range of American and European easy listening releases by some of the brightest names from the music’s golden era. Famed American conductor Arthur Fiedler is featured on two “3 albums on 2” 2-CD sets compiling several of the best albums by the Boston Pops Orchestra. Among those albums is 1964’s Pops Goes the Trumpet featuring trumpeter Al Hirt and the 1963 classic Jalousie, which includes an updated recording of the Boston Pops’ million-selling single of the same name. 1968’s Fantasy and Improvisations teams Fiedler and the Boston Pops with pianist Peter Nero in the premiere recording of Nero’s superb jazz concerto while 1965’s Nero Goes Pops showcases the Nero-Fiedler-Pops triumvirate in a programme of Gershwin pieces. Another American pianist – Floyd Cramer – is heard in the Dallas/The Best of the West “2 on 1” CD, which features him applying his own unique touch to such famous television and film themes as Dallas, Taxi, Knots Landing and The Big Valley. Big bands are represented by the fabulous “Tonight Show” orchestra led by Skitch Henderson – musical director of the Johnny Carson-hosted “The Tonight Show”. Henderson is also featured in a more romantic, orchestral setting in the Hollywood Award Winners!/Lush and Lovely “2 on 1” pairing while American light music legends Andre Kostelanetz and Morton Gould are showcased with two CDs devoted to their music.

Three of its biggest names represent the European easy listening/light music scene of the 1970s: James Last, Paul Mauriat and Roberto Delgado. James Last really needs no introduction – his albums sold by the million and his distinctive brand of up-tempo orchestral easy listening is instantly recognisable. Across two CDs, Vocalion presents four of his albums, among them his funky take on the music from counter-culture musical Hair and his disco takes on a number of American songbook standards (1978’s World Hits). French orchestra leader Paul Mauriat returns to Vocalion with a further five albums from his extensive discography, all of which feature his beguilingly sweeping orchestrations. He plays a range of material including Brazilian music and contemporary European, American and French pop alongside various film and television themes. Roberto Delgado – the pseudonym of German orchestra leader Horst Wende – turns his attention to the music of Greece with two albums showcasing the distinctive sound of the bouzouki while Caterina Valente is featured on two albums – Happy Caterina (1967) & The Caterina Valente Singers (1965). The latter album has musical direction by Johnny Keating and a young, pre-Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page on guitar. German trumpeter Roy Etzel, a member of various orchestras including the Max Greger Orchestra, makes his first appearance on Vocalion with two albums originally recorded for Teldec in the late 1960s: What’s New – Mr. Trumpet & Hello Mr. Trumpet.

We proudly present a classic British jazz album of the late 1960s – the legendary Hum Dono recorded by alto saxophonist Joe Harriott and guitarist Amancio D’Silva. Accompanying them is a stellar line-up that includes Bryan Spring (drums), Dave Green (bass), Ian Carr (flugelhorn) and Norma Winstone (vocal), and this fascinating blend of Indian and Caribbean influences with modern jazz really is one of the high watermarks in British jazz. Gabor Szabo, another virtuoso jazz guitarist, is showcased on two CDs that reissue the superb jazz-fusion albums he recorded in America for the Mercury label in the late 1970s. Faces (1977) was produced by trombonist and ex-Crusader Wayne Henderson and saw Szabo accompanied by musicians from the soul-jazz-funk band Pleasure, while 1976’s Nightflight was recorded in Philadelphia and was indebted to the soulful sounds of the famous Philadelphia International label.

Chappell & Bruton Music
November 2014

Film, Show & Library

Following Vocalion’s reissue series that focused on the KPM 1000 Series – one of the world’s most famous recorded music libraries – we now present another selection of original albums and compilations taken from two other leading recorded music libraries: the Chappell Library and Bruton Music. Established in 1941, the Chappell Library has to its credit numerous well-known television and radio themes. Founded in 1977 by Robin Phillips, who had previously steered the KPM 1000 Series to such great success, Bruton Music rapidly established itself as one of the UK’s premier music libraries.

Recorded in the 1970s and ’80s, the music here was used extensively in films and documentaries and on television and radio. Several of Britain’s most gifted arranger-composers are featured, among them Roger Webb, Pete Moore, Steve Gray, Johnny Pearson, Keith Mansfield, John Scott, Francis Monkman, David Lindup and Brian Bennett. The music ranges from lush, orchestral easy listening, up-tempo jazz-fusion and soundtrack-styled orchestral suites through to dramatic, Sweeney-style cop-show music and futuristic, electronic music à la Vangelis, Tomita and Tangerine Dream. Much of this material is receiving its first commercial release and these CDs represent the beautifully realised, high quality music that was Chappell and Bruton’s hallmark.

PRE-ORDER

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, and each of these CDs contains music that, in its own way, comment on this tragic episode in human history. Elgar’s epic three-movement The Spirit of England, Op. 80 (CDLX 7172) effectively his War Requiem, sets poems by Laurence Binyon, while Ivor Gurney’s War Elegy is another deeply affecting composition. CDLX 7243 includes Gurney’s orchestral song cycle Lights Out (1918-25) to words by Edward Thomas, who had been killed in France in 1917, while CDLX 7280 features contemporary English composer Ronald Corp’s magnificent work for baritone, chorus and orchestra, And all the Trumpets Sounded (1989), which Corp intended as a companion piece for Vaughan Williams’s Dona nobis pacem.
