Mantovani and His Orchestra To those Millions of people who as the baby bloomers all over the world know well about this man Mantovani as his music represents the ultimate in the listening pleasure. Mantovani has devised a unique formula which relies on co-ordination of all talents to make possibility to transcending the barrier between the “Classic” a “pop”! He draws upon an ast0onishing wide range of compositions for his recording: sometime adapting the melody of popular song, sometimes an operatic aria of an overture, sometimes a catchy tune imported from an European country, sometimes a haunting theme the highlights of a stage musical… I came to talk to Paul to look for me as many as he could some of the goodies of Mantovani, he passed me these Yesterday at his shop! I am glad and I am now listening to them, the masterpieces works from this Italian Music master.
