This blog seems have collected near all the best easy music orchestras. Besides, posted albums are of rather good quality. I especially delighted with albums of Frank Chacksfield. A collection of his records is probably the largest one among other musical blogs. Frank Chacksfield in my country is not well known, as, say, Conniff or Mauriat. It's difficult to say why, but it is the fact. Of course, Chacksfield - is a musical talent, with his own distinguishing manner of orchestral arrangements. For example, he likes unusual sound effects and a sound spectra of his orchestral works is very rich, vivid and healthy. The pieces he performed - are melodic and they demonstrate his good taste. More people must be familiar with music of this great maestro.
Deep appreciation to the host (or hostess?) of this nice blog.
Best wishes to VM from Russia.
