A Henry Mancini Tribute - Living Brass

Bye Bye
Living Brass Plays
A Henry Mancini Tribute
Aranged and Conducted by Ray Martin
RCA Camden

I wasn't expecting much, but to my surprise, this is a great album. I wasn't aware that Ray Martin's "Living Brass" contributions to the Living Brass series were considered among the best Tijuana Brass inspired groups (spaceagepop).

I'd have to agree, this is great space age light pop brass with touches of big band swing. The engineering by Bob Simpson is very good.
