John Cacavas Orchestra and Chorus - starring Bill Evans (piano), "Voices of Vista - No. 41", Unknown label #GXTV220284 (196_).[LP]

Pictured above is one side of a 33 1/3 rpm LP that apparently came with a generic white cover.

The radio program "Voices of VISTA" promoted VISTA:

Since 1965, over 120,000 Americans have performed national service as VISTA Volunteers. VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) places individuals with community-based agencies to help find long-term solutions to the problems caused by urban and rural poverty.

A number of musicians took part in the programs to help the cause. For Program No. 41, Bill Evans was the guest and it contained music, interviews, and VISTA promo commercials. Of the four musical selections that were in the program, all were Verve recordings and three involved Claus Ogerman:

Jazz Samba - [with Jim Hall, guitar - from the "Intermodulation" LP] - composed by Claus Ogerman.
Time Remembered and Prelude (Scriabin) [from the "Bill Evans Trio With Symphony Orchestra" LP] were arranged and conducted by Claus Ogerman.

The other side of the LP has three four-minute VISTA promos with Billy Joe Royal, Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels, and The Critters; the musical selections are taken from commercial releases.

Host/Narrator: Willis Conover

Produced for Office of Economic Opportunity by M.A. Magnum, Inc.


Symbiosis-cdboot.JPG  Symbiosis-cd-bootb.JPG
[The above CD version of the Bill Evans album "Symbiosis" (composed, arranged & conducted by Claus Ogerman) was found on an internet auction site; it either has a horrendous misprint on the back cover (talking about a Motown reissue of another completely different album) or it is a bootleg, even though the front cover is marked as a "[DJ] Promo Only" contains no catalog number or record label with which to identify itself.
As such, it is not included in the official text listing info for this album.]
