In addition, several of the albums
which Claus Ogerman arranged and conducted for Kai Winding are found
in a text list in the booklet under "Selected Discography" in this
boxed set. How Claus Ogerman came to arrange the hit
"More" for Kai Winding is also explained in a paragraph within this
boxed set's liner notes as this (written by Gene Lees):
"Creed [Taylor] still
marvels, all these years later, at Claus's versatility. He recalled
the instance of the theme from the Italian documentary film Mondo
Cane, which, with a lyric in English, became
More. Several people had recorded it, but nothing
much happened. Creed was about to do a recording with Kai Winding.
'I called Claus,' he said, 'and suggested that he double the
time. He whipped it out in nothing flat. Phil Ramone
was the engineer. We did it with the rhythm pattern Claus had laid
out and we had a top-ten hit.'"
