Something Super! - King Richard's Fluegel Knights

Bye Bye Blues
Something Super!
King Richard's Fluegel Knights
MTA Records MTS 5005

Here's a somewhat obscure artist (as King Richard).

Apparently King Richard is Dick Behrke as credited on the back cover as Musical Director. Behrke played in Bobby Darin's first band in the early 50s. He later became a conductor/arranger for Darin. He continued writing music for commercials and movies, including Beyond The Sea (2004), a "swooning study of "Mack The Knife" singer Bobby Darin (Kevin Spacey)."

This is an outstanding bright and groovy space age brass album.
