An unsung genius of program music
Prof. JiBbLe, Dr. of Thinkology | HUGHESTON, WV USA | 09/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Roger Roger (1911-1995) spent his creative years writing music for the Chappell Film Library, brief pieces with utilitarian titles like "Traffic Boom" and "Scenic Railway" that were used as background music in documentaries, newsreels, etc. This is the first commercially available recording of his work, which sounds like Raymond Scott by way of George Gershwin and proves Roger's uncanny ability to depict visual scenes in music. Quite an enjoyable, lightweight listen; file along with such "musical painters" as Ferde Grofe."
