Album Review

Ray Conniff is known for his use of voices as instruments, and he often embeds his vocal chorus in the instrumental mix so that it is no more a focal point than the strings. Young at Heart, on the other hand, puts the chorus right out in front, performing with more energy and personality than Conniff normally requires, and the result is not too far afield from the sound of Mitch Miller. The songs are pop standards like "These Foolish Things," "Harbor Lights," and "I'm in the Mood for Love," all of which are given a new twist with playful and interesting vocal arrangements. Conniff's trademark vocal and instrumental blend may not be in evidence on Young at Heart, but his expert arranging skills and the talent of his chorus are on prominent display.
