Bud Shank Plays Music From Today's Movies

Theme From Warning Shot
Bud Shank Plays Music From Today's Movies
Arranged and Conducted by Bob Florence
World Pacific/Liberty Records WP-18864

This is, perhaps, not the most engaging cover image World Pacific might have created to market this project. The audio content is sophisticated "movie theme" jazzy space age fair that deserved an image to match the cool factor of the sound.

From the back cover: For this musical movie, Bud Shank has surrounded himself with musicians who are also no strangers to the studios' sound recording stages. They are also no strangers to recording sessions with Bud, for they have starred in many of his pervious record productions. For this album, Shank has limited himself to playing alto-sax: Bob Florence, who arranged and conducted the earlier "Michelle" and "California Dream" albums returns for similar duty here, plus fancy pianistics. Other members are: Victor Feldman on vibraphone and percussion. Mike Melvoin on organ and harpsichord (electric and otherwise), Frank Capp, drums, Dennis Budimir and Herb Ellis on guitars, Ray Brown on bass and Jimmy Zito on flugelhorn.
