Stylistic Vocals and Rich Orchestrations Highlight This Compilation of Stage and Screen Favorites
Tender ballads and uptempo tunes comprise this sixth studio album by acclaimed vocalist Seth MacFarlane, whose new release, Great Songs From Stage & Screen, features memorable songs from film and theatre by musical legends the likes of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Lerner & Loewe and Henry Mancini.
Commented MacFarlane, “The album is masterfully arranged by composer Bruce Broughton, whose signature vibrance and sophisticated orchestral texturing is a perfect match for this collection of show-centric swing arrangements and ballads.”
A stellar roster of musicians that includes Chuck Berghofer on bass, Peter Erskine on drums, Larry Koonse on guitar, Dan Higgins on alto sax, and Tom Rainier at the piano make this a top-notch production in every way.
The Republic/Verve release is available as a download. The CD will be released October 9th.
