Jo Ment (1923–2002) was a German musician.

Born Jochen Ment in 1923, he became a successful musician in Hamburg, Germany, showing proficiency on accordion and saxophone. In the 1950s, he became a member of the NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk, or North German Radio) Big Band, then under the direction of Alfred Hause; his bandmates included Bert Kaempfert, James Last, Horst Wende and Ladi Geisler. He also toured with Hause's popular tango orchestra. Ment was active as a session musician in Hamburg, playing for many popular recording acts. He was also a charter member of the James Last Orchestra, although he did not actually tour with Last until the 1980s. During the 1960s, the big band pop sounds of Bert Kaempfert and James Last became popular throughout Europe and eventually around the world. Many imitation acts sprang up, and Jochen Ment led one of them. Signed to the German Ariola label, he recorded under the name Jo Ment and used many of the same musicians as Kaempfert and Last. Ment's albums were not as original as those of his mentors, but they were popular and sold well. In the 1980s, the big band pop sound lost popularity. Ment discontinued making orchestral recordings and became a permanent touring member of the James Last Orchestra, playing accordion and percussion. He was regularly featured as an accordion soloist on the popular live numbers "Biscaya" and "Jigs and Reels". Ment remained a member of the Last band until shortly before his death.


The Ray Kelley Band

Resort Music

RAY KELLEY has worked as a professional cellist for over 50 years. At age 18, he worked in Hollywood [his home town] for one season as a cello player in a Country Western band on The Spade Cooley Show, broadcast on KTLA-TV. This was the 1st of many professional engagements. In 1956, Ray began his classical music career playing one season in the Utah Symphony… and six years in the Dallas Symphony. He moved back to Los Angeles at age 25 when he joined the Los Angeles Philharmonic. During the next five years, he traveled extensively with the L.A. Philharmonic, experiencing an exciting 8-week tour around-the-world in 1967, playing in most of the great venues and concert halls of the world. In 1968, after 12 years in classical music, he left the Philharmonic to work as a full-time, free-lance cellist on records, films, commercials and live television shows. He continues to work in the L.A. studios to this day—and is Principal Cellist on the long-running animated series The Simpsons. In 1988, Ray founded Resort Music, Inc., a music publishing, record and tourism marketing company, producing instrumental CDs –


Alyn Ainsworth aka Nick North Orchestra

The nicky north orchestra has appeared under different aliases ( especially in the case of beautiful music/ easy listening radio stations) previously their music was not availible to the public until recently. If you like instrumental versions of 80s pop rock classics you will find much of that here and much more i recommend all the recordings by this artist. Its a great value and well worth the cost of the downloads you can even create your own custom megamix just like radio used to back in the day.

This excellent beautiful instrumentals album was custom work commissioned by a European company called Rediffusion and credited to the Buckingham Strings. This is not your typical sappy synthesized elevator music but rather high quality renditions of yesterday's favorites with real musicians. The artistry behind this music is really Alyn Ainsworth a name many have come to recognize for his unique style of beautiful instrumentals. [--amazon associate: reviewer]

Golden Age of Light Music from GUILD MUSIC on CDs

Several albums of The Golden Age of Light Music are featured on the playlist of BEAUTIFULinstrumentals. Back in 2007 Guild released two collections covering four decades of Light Music, from the 1920s to the 1950s (GLCD5134; 5135). This concept was revisited in GLCD5218 with a selection of ‘Contrasts’ where the scope was widened to include the 1960s. During work on the project it soon became apparent that just one CD could not fully do justice to the idea, hence this second volume along similar lines. The somewhat sedate styles of earlier years were inevitably affected by the influences of the jazz era. Then the arrival of electrical sound recording in the mid-1920s, and the major impact of the cinema when talking pictures arrived, meant that vast amounts of Light Music in its many different styles was required. Finally by the 1960s the perfection of high fidelity and stereo sound often allowed composers, arrangers and conductors to express themselves in a spectacular fashion previously unimaginable. All this is vividly illustrated in the very varied collection on this CD. We have linked all of the GUILD MUSIC Light Music series from

Alyn Ainsworth (24 August 1924 - 4 October 1990) was a British conductor of light entertainment music.

Born in Bolton, Lancashire, he was educated at Canon Slade Grammar School on a scholarship but never completed his education there because at the age of 14 his talent as a singer was recognised by Herman Darewski who signed him up to tour with his dance band. When his voice broke he learnt to play the guitar and played in local dance bands whilst working as hat salesman then for Bolton Parks Department and later as a golf pro. He then joined Oscar Rabin's orchestra where he both played with the band and did musical arrangements, they also broadcast on the radio. He also worked with Geraldo but turned down an offer from Val Parnell to conduct the London Palladium Orchestra and chose in 1951 to join the BBC Northern Dance Orchestra, the BBC's then in-house big band, as its arranger-conductor.


Laurindo Almeida (September 2, 1917 – July 26, 1995) was a Brazilian virtuoso guitarist

He made many recordings of enduring impact in classical, jazz and Latin genres. He is widely credited, with fellow artist Bud Shank, for creating the fusion of Latin and jazz which came to be known as the “Jazz Samba.” Almeida was the first artist to receive Grammy Awards for both classical and jazz performances. His discography encompasses more than a hundred recordings over five decades.
