The Marshall Swings!!!
Jack Marshall Swings Songs Of The Wide Open Spaces

Capitol Records ST 1351

From the back cover: To enumerate Jack Marshall's many musical achievements is no simple task, for one hardly knows where to begin. Within an amazingly short period of time he has jumped from the ranks of America's top guitarist to fame as a composer, arranger, conductor and as a Capitol recording artist.

Jack's remarkable knack for creative orchestration has made him one of the most sought-after arrangers in the business, and his fine backings have helped to make hit recordings for such singing stars as Peggy Lee, Mavis Rivers and The Four Freshmen. His own Capitol albums, "18th Century Jazz" and "Soundsville," have served to further establish Jack Marshall as one of the outstanding young music-men in the country today.

In addition to his numerous recording activities, Jack manages to keep pretty busy in other fields of musical endeavor. He has written the scores for several feature motion pictures as well as for the NBC television series, "The Deputy."

From Billboard - April 18th, 1960: Here's an effective album, spotlighting swinging arrangements of Western tunes, spotlighting Jack Marshall's solid guitar solo work, backed by organ, harpsichord, rhythm guitar, bass and drums. Spinnable jockey fare. Selections include "San Antonio Rose," "Cool Water," "Don't Fence Me In," etc. Provocative cover photo.
