2 Sides Of Winterhalter
Hugo Winterhalter and His Orchestra
RCA Victor LPM-1905 & LSP-1905

From the back cover: Winterhalter's experience dips back into the heart of the Swing Era. He studied violin and the reed instruments at St. Mary's High School in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and continued his musical ambitions while a student at Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He later became a big band musician but after several years left active playing to devote full energies to arranging. His work was played by bands such as those of Tommy Dorsey, Vaughn Monroe, Larry Clinton, Count Basie, Raymond Scott, Claude Thornhill, Will Bradley and Jimmy Dorsey. The singers for whom he has written orchestral settings include Frank Sinatra, Billy Eckstine, Dinah Shore, Tony Martin and Perry Como. – Ferris Benda
