Ray Ellis (July 28, 1923 – October 27, 2008) was an American record producer, arranger and conductor.

Ellis was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He arranged many hit records in the 1950s and 1960s. Included are classics such as "A Certain Smile" by Johnny Mathis, "Broken Hearted Melody" by Sarah Vaughan, and "Standing on the Corner" by the Four Lads. In 1970, he produced Emmylou Harris' debut LP Gliding Bird. Ellis' work encompassed all areas of music, from records to film, commercials, and television. His television theme music credits include NBC News At Sunrise with Connie Chung and the original cartoon series Spider-Man. In the early 1960s, Ellis had a contract to produce his own easy listening record albums with RCA Victor, MGM, and Columbia, the most popular probably being Ellis in Wonderland.

WIKIPEDIA LATimes Obit



Caravelli, real name Claude Vasori, (born 12 September 1930, Paris) is a French orchestra leader, composer and arranger of orchestral music.

The son of an Italian father and a French mother, Vasori was initially instructed in music by his mother in piano and voicing/harmony at seven years old, and later, when he was thirteen he began to attend the Paris Conservatoire. At twenty he was professionally touring, accompanying singers on piano, and at 26 years old he started as orchestra conductor. Vasori took his stage name in 1956 from the newly introduced twin-jet Caravelle from Caravelle Aerospatiale. This plane was the first jet created for the short-haul market. The first Caravelle entered service for Air France on May 9, 1959. He made it more Italianate in honor of his father's origins, changing the last letter: “CARAVELLI et son Violons Magiques/& his Magnificent Strings”.






101 STRINGS

We have added some new tracks by the 101 strings. I have some older ones on the playlist now but will add a few new releases of some of their newer selections. Wikipedia notes: 101 Strings Orchestra was a brand for a highly successful easy listening symphonic music organization, with a discography exceeding a hundred albums and a creative lifetime of roughly thirty years. Their LPs were individualized by the slogan "The Sound of Magnificence", a puffy cloud logo and sepia-toned photo of the orchestra. The 101 Strings orchestra was composed of 124 string instruments (all male except for the harpist) and was conducted by Wilhelm Stephan. The orchestra's famous official photograph was taken in the Musikhalle Hamburg. Record label mogul David L. Miller started the series...MORE

New additions to our playlist by the Philip Green Orchestra

Philip Green (19 July 1911 – 6 October 1982), sometimes credited as Harry Philip Green, was a film and
television composer and conductor. He composed more than 150 film scores including Man on the Run (1949), The Yellow Balloon (1952), One Good Turn (1954), Carry on Admiral (1957), The Square Peg (1958), The League of Gentlemen (1960), A Stitch in Time (1963) and The Intelligence Men (1965). His themes for John and Julie (1954) and The March Hare (1956) both won Ivor Novello Awards. Philip Green was not as prolific in the commercial recording studios compared with some of his peers (he was too busy on other projects), but his post-war single releases included ten 78s for MGM, and similar numbers for Decca, Columbia, Parlophone and Top Rank. In addition he arranged and conduct several memorable LP albums including: "Moments in Mayfair", "Follow The Sun" and "Pan-American Panorama" (for EMI Columbia); "Wings of Song" (Top Rank); and tributes to great song-writers such as Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin (for RCA). Robert Farnon Society, David Ades |

Like many composers of film music and light music, he also wrote prolifically for production music libraries and as a result, a number of his compositions are familiar through their use in film, radio and television programmes. Many of these works are now published by Carlin Production Music. His short composition "Horse Feathers" was used for the radio series Meet the Huggets, for example, and a number of his pieces were used in Night of the Living Dead, Looney Tunes theatrical shorts (such as in 1958 when the musicians were on strike, or later added as part of TV prints for Freudy Cat.) Towards the end of his career he moved to Ireland, where he developed his interest in music with a religious theme. Two which he regarded with particular pride were "St Patrick's" and "Children's Masses for Choir and Orchestra". Philip Green died late in 1982 in Dublin, following a long illness; his widow Dorothy died in 1995. Green's first credited work was on 1943's The Sky's the Limit. He was a house arranger and conductor for Decca and accompanied many of their vocalists such as Gracie Fields, Donald Peers and Anne Shelton. He was later appointed resident musical director of the Rank Organisation. He continued to compose and conduct for film and television until his retirement in 1966. Philip, along with his wife, Dorothy, established the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust to help young musicians and composers.

LOVE IS BLUE composer ANDRE POPP has died

André Charles Jean Popp
 (19 February 1924 – 10 May 2014) 
was a French composer

"Love is Blue", a song Vicky Leandros performed at the Eurovision Song Contest 1967 on behalf of Luxembourg, also recorded by Claudine Longet, became a popular world-wide hit. In these recordings, Popp does not sacrifice the sophistication of his 1950s orchestrations, but rather than animate the songs, he seems to set the tone, the mood, painting a colorful picture. Sometimes there are silky, smooth strings; often there is harpsichord and oboe and flute; elsewhere adventurous brassy fanfares; occasionally an ethereal soprano chorus; always some magical musical final touch, like the faint, quavering harmonica in "Manchester et Liverpool". Marie Laforêt's voice fit perfectly in André Popp's 1960s soundscapes and he created more of them for her than for her contemporaries. Popp died at his apartment in the Paris suburb of Puteaux on 10 May 2014.
