Synopsis

Album Description
A special, historic recording worthy of Grammy Award consideration. Recorded circa 1960, it has been forgotten for some 40+ years only to be discovered recently in a shed near Shaefer's Florida home! Recorded at the highly reputed Olmstead Studios, where "under the radar" legend Hal Schaefer booked some time with a grand piano and let it all out. Schaefer's eclectic career varies from playing with big bands led by Benny Carter, Harry James, and Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey to writing movie scores for 20th Century Fox and dance arrangements for Broadway shows such as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. "A romantic with a rhythmic soul." -- New York Times
