Voices In Brass - The Four Freshmen

Voices In Brass
The Four Freshmen
With Trombone Choir Conducted by Pete Rugolo
A Magnificent Blend of Voices and Brass
Produced by Voyle Gilmore
Capitol Records ST 1295

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art and notes.

From the back cover: The talented Dick Reynolds arranged all of the vocal parts for the quartet of Bob Flanigan, who handles the upper register; Don Barbour, the second voice; Ross Barbour, the third voice; and Ken Albers, who sings bass.

Stereo Note

Pete Rugolo's ingenious arrangements were specially devised to take full advantage of the stereophonic possibilities offered in "Voices and Brass." He brilliantly exploits the tremendous range of instrumental effects made available by the use of a battery of trombones, mixed and matched in a limitless variety of tone-colors and harmonic patterns. The Trombones are voiced in an assortment of combinations, both open and muted, and their right-left placement is cleverly varied to create some striking directional effects behind the Four Freshmen.
