The arrangers are some of the most important people in the music business, yet all too often their work is taken for granted and usually ignored. But without the skill of the arranger, the glorious sounds that any musical ensemble can create might never emerge. The arrival of the LP around 1950 ushered in a period when top arrangers would find themselves in demand from the light music conductors whose albums were to prove so popular. Many conductors could also arrange, and they developed styles that made them instantly recognisable to their admirers. This collection is a tribute to those unsung ?heroes? of the music business, whose value cannot be overstated, yet who were frequently unrecognised.
