From the back cover: About George

He is a showman

He is the brother of.

Versatile, he is more than an orchestra leader.

As conductor, he has appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Milwaukee Philharmonic, the St. Louis Symphony, the Dallas Symphony, and at the Hollywood Bowl.

He is an actor. He was seen in the Warner Brothers film "Sincerely Yours" and has guested on the TV shows of such outstanding personalities as Jack Benny, Red Skelton, George Gobel and Jimmy Durante.

He studied at the Chicago and Detroit Conservatories of Music. 

He began his musical career playing violin with Orrin Tucker and learned the music business the grueling "one night stand" way.

His flourishing career was interrupted by World War I. He served as a "Seabee."

Not long after the war he combined talents with his brother. He became musical director and co-star of the fantastically successful "Liberace Show."

The rest is history.

His Command Performances include those of President Eisenhower, ex-President Truman, The Queen Of England and the late Pope.

Most recently, he has acted as musical host at the famed Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Which brings us to this album.
