Album Review

After the less successful Dance the Bop, on his third album Ray Conniff returned to the formula with which he had found success on his first album, 'S Wonderful!, once again turning out a set of lively arrangements of standards featuring a wordless chorus, with the deliberately similar title 'S Marvelous again evoking the Gershwin song. Along with Gershwin, the featured composers included Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and Jerome Kern, and the album was even more popular than its predecessor, lodging in the Top Ten and going gold. With that, Conniff was off to the races, cloning this style on dozens of subsequent releases.

's marvelous

classic conniff. Truly one his greatest works. The Conniff sound has been too long gone. Welcome Back! There is nothing like the Ray Conniff Singers and Ray's orchestra. These tunes take me back to the late 50' and early 60's. Those were the great music days! Thanks for bringing them back. Now if I could only get "s awful nice, life would be complete.
