Description by

Percy Faith set the standard for colorful instrumentals - Harold Arlen (remember "Stormy Weather" or "Over The Rainbow?)" penned a beautiful score for Truman Capote's exotic Broadway play "House Of Flowers." Percy Faith brings humor and beauty to his orchestral treatment of these joyous tunes; in "Adventures In The Sun," Percy Faith, who came to us from the cold and snow of Canada, brings a sunny, up-tempo sound to a dozen stunning melodies, several of them his own compositions. (Bill Halvorsen)

Product Description:

Full title: Plays Music From The Broadway Production House Of Flowers/ Adventure In The Sun.
Originally released on Columbia.
Recording information: 01/22/1953-03/18/1957.
This Collectables reissue combines two similar Percy Faith dates originally released on Columbia Records in the early '60s, House of Flowers and Adventure in the Sun. The big-band leader provides 24 elegant renditions of classic Broadway show tunes, including "House of Flowers," "What Is a Friend For?," "Tropical Merengue," "Carmellita," and "Tropic Holiday." Although not essential, this is a respectable two-fer that traditional pop fans should be aware of. ~ Al Campbell
