Description by OLDIES.com:

Big band leader Si Zentner graduated from the brass section of the Harry James and Jimmy Dorsey Orchestras. Zentner was also an important sessionman, and his fine trombone playing can be heard accompanying stars such as Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, and Nat King Cole. These two albums, originally released by Imperial in the early 1960s, feature fully orchestral and full-bodied renditions of some of the most popular songs of the day.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: BIG BAND PLAYS THE BIG HITS VOL. 1 (1961)/BIG BAND PLAYS THE BIG HITS VOL. 2 (1962).
Originally released on Columbia.
Included on this Collectables reissue are two early-'50s LPs from Si Zentner & His Orchestra: Big Band Plays the Big Hits, Vol. 1 and Up a Lazy River (Big Band Plays the Big Hits, Vol. 2). Trombone player Zentner and his band lightly swing their way through two-dozen hits that would've worked during the big band era, with a warm sound but slightly tepid arrangements. The novelty of hearing orchestral versions of these songs -- "Perfidia," "Honky Tonk," "Apache," "Walk -- Don't Run," and Dee Clark's "Raindrops" -- doesn't last very long, though a few of them work, like a twist version of "Nice 'N' Easy" or "Yellow Bird." ~ John Bush
