From the back cover: Marty Gold's preparation for this unusual arranging and conducting task started with a Town Hall debut when he was only 12 and has included arranging assignments for Charlie Barnet and other big bands and work as a conductor for such singers as Sarah Vaughan and the Four Aces. For several years he has been associated with The Three Suns.
The tunes has has chosen for his three-organ ensemble are some of the most warmly loved works of our popular composers. Most of them are thoroughly familiar and some – like Yesterdays and Over The Rainbow – are heard almost daily by anyone within earshot of television, radio or jukebox but never before in the unusual instrumentation in which they are offed here.
From Billboard - March 2, 1958: Superior sound, unusual instrumentation, and excellent technique make this package a solid commercial bet. Ensemble features three organs, string bass, percussionist, celesta and a keyboard glockenspiel. Nostalgic line-up of standards included "I Saw Star," "Penthouse Serenade," "All The Things You Are," etc. For hi-fi addicts, organ fans and romantic deejay sets. Striking cover photo.
