Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Kodachrome is a sparkling collection of Raymond Scott's idiosyncratic orchestral music, performed by the 60-piece Metropole Orchestra. All compositions make their CD debut here. With Kodachrome, the Raymond Scott legacy grows yet again. After Scott disbanded his legendary 'Quintet' in 1939, he formed the first of his many orchestras. Scott continued to compose, this time for a larger canvas, and some of his more historically fascinating work often went commercially unrecorded, performed only on radio (and preserved on transcription discs made by Scott himself). Kodachrome was produced by Beau Hunks leader Gert-Jan Blom, and features exceptional cover artwork by Kellie Strøm, and liner notes by illustrious author and jazz historian Will Friedwald.
