Percy Faith, “Songs From Award Winning Movies”, Ranwood Records #_________ (1996).[CD]

Nick Perito was the conductor of this album.

Maria
Never On Sunday
Laura
Manha de Carnaval

Notes:  Technically, this 1996 release is not actually by Percy Faith; producer/conductor Nick Perito uses Faith's original arrangements, but these are new recordings. The sound quality is superior to Faith's original '50s and '60s recordings, but purists might feel a bit disappointed. (Interestingly, Faith's best-known movie theme, "Theme from A Summer Place," is absent, but then, that PEYTON PLACE-style soap opera didn't win any awards.) The arrangements are classic Percy Faith, with his trademark string sound throughout. The themes, including everything from "Hello Dolly!" to "Manha de Carnaval" from BLACK ORPHEUS, are smartly chosen.
