Sugar Blues
Dancing With The Blues
Al Nevins And His Orchestra
Arranger: Charles Albertine

Big band sweetly augmented with strings including the featured violin passage as heard in the sample above.

From the back cover: And as for the orchestra, Al Nevins commented as follows when the recording session were complete: "For myself, this has been a dream come true. It is difficult to describe the tremendous excitement and pleasure that came from the working with an enthusiastic orchestra created specifically to combine the talented young musicians of our day and an outstanding creative arranger with the music that is our heritage and the facilities and engineers to capture the sounds and record the music."
