The Big Band Sound Of Sid Ramin

The Syncopated Clock
The Big Band Sound Of Sid Ramin
RCA LSP-2716
1963

Nice bachelor pad big band swing from Academy, Grammy and Emmy award winning composure Sid Ramin.

From the back cover. This record was marketed as Ramin's follow up to his album New Thresholds In Sound. "I wanted a great deal of orchestral weight in this one. Soloists, yes, but with an over-all big-band sound predominating. I wanted to see if the Dynagroove system could handle the ultimate in dynamics. You can hear how we come in a split second from a full-forte orchestral mass to the sound of a single instrument."

The engineering on this record is very good.

  4. I just came across this while looking for Sid Ramin on Google. Thought I should point out that the selection you've embedded is not Holiday For Strings but rather The Syncopated Clock. Nice transfer! :)

    1. Thanks. I do that sometimes... pick another sample after I've labeled the tune in blogger, forgetting to change the name. : )
