Rockin' Violins - Eric Jupp


A Garden In The Rain

Rockin' Violins
Eric Jupp and His Orchestra
Produced by Dave Dexter, Jr.
Capitol Records ST 10240

From the back cover: Eric Jupp is the young man of England's top pop singers call on when they want a backing that really rocks, with a big modern sound.

For several years Jupp has been one of the realm's leading pianist-arrangers. After he left the R.A.F., he worked with big bands and night club entertainers. He has moved on to free-lancing arrangements for the B.B.C. "Show Band" Show and frequent record dates with Englands' favorite young singers.

Somehow, Eric still finds time for original compositions. His is a versatile talent, and we're sure to hear more from him on both sides of the Atlantic.

From Billboard - May 16, 1960: Listenable collection of standards here played by Eric Jupp and his orchestra with strings featured over a rockin' beat. The tunes include "Autumn Leaves," "Red Sails In The Sunset," "We'll Meet Again," and "Goodnight Sweetheart." Jupp is the well-known English arranger and ork leader.
