In olden days...
We have a centenary to celebrate today, peeps!
King of the lightest-of-light music Mr Ray Conniff (for it is he), as I commented here eight years ago, was "known for his use of human voices in place of instruments in his recordings... [he and] his ever-changing band of squeaky-clean singers were a staple diet of the type of music aficionado who actually bought album collections from the Readers' Digest, and for whom Woolworths' MFP Classics were too racy!"
So, by way of a suitable musical interlude on this cold November morning, what better than some (more) of his - ahem - "classic" arrangements..?
Joseph Raymond "Ray" Conniff (6th November 1916 – 12th October 2002)
