Whispering - Luis Arcaraz

Luis Arcaraz And His Orchestra
RCA Victor LPM-1385

Available from online retailers, so I will not be posting a sample.

Back cover notes, by Richard Broderick, are presented in both English and Spanish and feature curious notes about the tunes, rather than offering us any Arcaraz biographical information.  Notes focus, for the most part, on how each song relates to a war.  For instance, this last paragraph: 1947 – and a new word was added to the dictionary of International Polities, "Cold War." The song – Ballerina – and the artist, Vaughn Monroe.

There are no references in the notes that seem to support the "Whispering" cover theme and the arrangements, while pleasant period big band, are not stylistically "soft or quiet" sounding.
