Some of the best easy listening albums of the 50’s with standards and the equisite trumpet of Bobby Hackett. The albums slipped in the 60’s as the series covered pop hits of the day. In an interview with Johnny Carson, Gleason said he did conduct the orchestra. He said the albums were aimed at “The guy in Canarsie who didn’t have anything” to set the atmosphere for female guests. This album was re-released in 2004 with added tracks for a total of twenty-four. If lush is to your taste this is for you.
Highlights include: “It’s The Talk Of The Town”, “You Are My Greatest Love”(From”The Honeymooners”), “Autumn Leaves” and “September Song.”
