Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered reissue of the Easy Listening bandleader's 1958 album. Ray Conniff was a highly successful orchestra and bandleader, providing the backing to some of Columbia's biggest artists during the 1950s. Whilst the singles and songs he backed would probably have become hits even without his contribution, the tasteful accompaniment he provided soon had Mitch Miller, the A&R chief at Columbia during this time, pushing Ray to record albums under his own name. 12 tracks. Hallmark. 2009.

Ray Conniff And 1950's Dance/Mood Music At Their Best!
Mark Ramsay | New York, NY USA | 07/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"'S Awful Nice is the third of Ray Conniff's independent albums after having made a name for himself as the back up orchestrator for such singers as Johnny Mathis. Each song on this album is a classic that Mr. Conniff brilliantly re-orchestrated to expand and amplify the richness and style that each song already possessed. The entire album is a study in the taste of the times and 'S Awful Nice is Ray Conniff's answer to the late '50's American's desire to bring music into his home that created an aura of happiness, style, and success."
S'Awful Nice lives up to its title!

"If you want to hear the best instrumental and vocal arrangements, then this Ray Conniff C.D. is the one to enjoy.The liner notes on the C.D. says "another scintillating example of Ray Conniff's imaginative work". Those words couldn't be said any better.The orchestra and voices do a superb rendition of classics as "It Had To Be You","That Old Feeling" and "Lovely To Look At". If you are a fan Ray Conniff I know you won't be disappointed! You just wish there was music like this today!"
S' Classic!!

"S' Classic Conniff! This CD was created to musically take you back to to "a better time," when truly beautiful music was "in." Among his very early LPs, these selections will definitely keep you interested as they move from lively tunes of the forties and fifties to the velvet love songs of the times. "The Very Thought of You," "Say it Isn't So," and "All the Things You Are" are guaranteed to musically charm you into a "mood.""
