"there are some conniff recordings that fans come back to again and again. this 1960 effort is one of those that i've revisited many, many times over its 45 years.
"say it with music" was somewhat of a departure for ray in that he introduced his latin-flamenco guitar device with resounding success. these renditions prove conniff's mettle as a skillful and innovative arranger. the sound is big band, the production values are impeccable, and the rhythms are infectious. one of conniff's superior productions.
sidemen for this album include billy butterfield (his treatment of "summertime" is incredibly beautiful) and doc severinsen on trumpet.
to think that ray conniff's first full-fledged recording ('s wonderful) was a mere 3 years earlier than this particular album....what a tremendous evolution in the conniff sound in such a short period.
"say it with music" is consummate conniff!"
