Jackie Gleason Music Martinis & Memories [Import] on Collectors' Choice Music

Music, Martinis And Memories

We just don't have entertainers like him anymore. I don't know what it is about Jackie Gleason's music but it has a certain relaxation factor about it. Somehow he would tell a composer what he wanted in music and the composer s would put it to paper and music. I wish that man was still with us. I guarantee your blood pressure will go down.

But if you're looking for depth, you won't find much of it here. He produced a series of best selling mood music albums for Capitol Records, with the stated aim to make 'musical wallpaper that should never be intrusive, but conducive. Perhaps better known as an actor and comedian, Jackie Gleason managed to get through most of the 1950s with another string to his bow, that of an accomplished musician.

But if you're looking for depth, you won't find much of it here. The music sets a romantic mood, but compared to the arrangements of Percy Faith or Les Baxter, Gleason is plain vanilla. The arrangements on are really very simple: massed violins play the melody while 's trumpet flits around the edges, or sometimes takes the lead over a bed of swelling strings. .

I have all of his albums and listen quite frequently to them all.

Just sit down in your easy chair, make yourself a martini and close your eyes. Music, Martinis, and Memories is fine dinner music, and Hackett's technique is superb, but the album fails to hold the listener's attention when brought to the foreground.

From what I understand, Jackie could not read or write music. He produced a series of best selling mood music albums for Capitol Records, with the stated aim to make 'musical wallpaper that should never be intrusive, but conducive. I also loved watching his many different characters on television.
