Passion - Walter Scharf

Composed, Arranged and Conducted by Walter Shcarf
Produced by Morty Palitz

Jubilee Records JLP 1079
Superlaphonic Hi-Fi

Excellent edgy late 50s mood set. Could be considered a concept LP.

From Billboard - November 17, 1958: Composer, conductor, arranger Scarf batons a shimmering stereo performance of woodwinds and strings. Framework is Latin, heady and romantic, as the title might imply. Rhythm are tango, conga, samba, etc., and the tunes are all Scharf's own. A rather bold cover will cause some chatter. The sound and performance are excellent.

Walther Scharf wrote the Michael Jackson single from the movie Ben (1972). See Scharf's wiki page.
