Happy Birthday to JOHN FOX conductor arranger of beautiful instrumentals

Up-to-the-minute report: Our beautiful music broadcasting buddy, Marlin Taylor reports: "Just spoke with John and he sounded quite “chipper” … which pleases me greatly, as he hasn’t sounded very upbeat is recent calls. However, he is failing physically, as is his memory and walking is rather difficult for him. He still has a dog, which I know is great company for him – for much of his life taking his dog for a walk was a special part of every day. John will be 90 on April 30th of this year … and it’ll be 10 years in August since wife Joy passed away. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that John is the last remaining member of his peer group of great English conductor-arrangers. I was in contact with a representative of the estate of Ronnie Aldrich last week and can hardly believe it’s been 20 years since Ronnie died."
John Fox was born in Sutton Surrey and the year was 1924. He was educated at Sutton West School for boys, and from a very young age imitated all the musical instruments played by orchestras on the family’s small battery radio set. John’s parents thought he was mad, but in the end they realised he had a talent for music. As he was so keen, they soon sent him for piano lessons at a very early age for which he progressed rapidly, and began composing simple pieces for piano. At eighteen, during world war two, he was called up in the RAF With this musical experience and talent, the commanding officer in the R.A F base heard him playing the piano in the officers mess and commissioned him to entertain the airmen in the various messes for the rest of the war.

Composer Mitch Leigh has died at 86

The show, “Man of La Mancha,” opened in New York in 1965 and ran until 1971, a total of 2,328 performances.

Relaxing easy listening music a source of Alzheimer's therapy

Caregivers have observed for decades that Alzheimer's patients can still remember and sing songs long after they've stopped recognizing names and faces. Many hospitals and nursing homes use music as recreation, since it brings patients pleasure. But beyond the entertainment value, there's growing evidence that listening to music can also help stimulate seemingly lost memories and even help restore some cognitive function.

Richard Hayman (March 27, 1920 – February 5, 2014) was an American arranger, harmonica player and conductor. Hayman started out as a player and arranger for the Borrah Minnevitch Harmonica Rascals before becoming an arranger for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios during the early 1940s. He did arrangements (often uncredited) for the MGM films Girl Crazy, Meet Me in St. Louis and Thousands Cheer. From 1945-1950, he was musical director for the Vaughn Monroe Orchestra. In the 1950s and 60s, Hayman recorded a series of albums for Mercury Records. His 1957 outing "Havana In Hi-Fi" was first in the label's pop music stereo LP series (SR 60000). Hayman is most famous for having been the principal arranger at the Boston Pops Orchestra for over 30 years where his award-winning arrangements are still used today. He occasionally guest-conducted there, and when Arthur Fiedler had a time conflict with his job as pops conductor for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, he recommended Hayman for the post....Wikipedia


Riziero "Riz" Ortolani (25 March 1926 – 23 January 2014)

In the early 1950s Ortolani was founder and member of a well-known Italian jazz band. He wrote his first score for Paolo Cavara and Gualtiero Jacopetti's pseudo-documentary Mondo Cane, whose main title-song More earned him a Grammy and was also nominated for an Oscar as Best Song. The success of the soundtrack of Mondo Cane led Ortolani to score films in England and the United States such as The 7th Dawn (1964), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), The Glory Guys (1965) and The Spy with a Cold Nose (1966). Another renowned track was his main-title for the movie O Cangaceiro (1970).
Ortolani scored all or parts of over 200 films, including German westerns like Apache's Last Battle (Old Shatterhand, 1964) and a long series of Italian giallos, spaghetti westerns, Eurospy films, Exploitation films and mondo films. Notable films scored by Ortolani include Il Sorpasso (1962), Io ho paura (1977), Castle of Blood (1964), Anzio (1968), The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom (1968), Sette orchidee macchiate di rosso (1972), Africa Addio (1966), Addio Zio Tom (1971), House on the Edge of the Park (1980), Cannibal Holocaust (1980), and the first series of La Piovra (1984).
