Music For Your Midnight Mood - Acquaviva

Man With A Dream
Music For Your Midnight Mood
Acquaviva And His Orchestra
MGM Records E3226

I don't why I'm drawn to Acquaviva albums.  Acquaviva… That's a cool name and the cover artwork is cool. The engineering is excellent and the sound, lush - but the music in my opinion, is bit heavy for a "midnight mood".

From the back cover: What about this Acquaviva? Well, to clear up an often-questioned mystery right at the outset, he does have a first name. It's Anthony, but he prefers to respond to "Tony". Although he's a young man – in his late twenties at the time these recordings were made – he's already proven himself to be one of the most individualistic and thoughtful conductor-arranger-composers on the current American musical scene.

  1. Indeed a nice name and he had a very common Christian name; Tony. He's better known as mister Joni James. He died at the age of 61. Way too young.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
