This is one of my all time favorite recordings.

The sound reproduction quality on this 2005 release is excellent and it comes with interesting - if minimal - notes.

I remember listening to this wonderful music by Joe Harnell when I was only a teenager.

This is a wonderful CD. Joe Harnell, through several songs on this very CD/recording, actually came to my attention many years ago back in the late 1970's. It wasn't until recently when I was listening to one of my favorite radio stations that they played an arrangement of "My One and Only Love" that I loved, but had forgotten. After purchasing the CD I have had many hours of listening pleasure to all of the arrangements on the CD. I wish more of the studio work that the late Mr. Harnell and his Orchestra did was available for purchase. I easily rate this effort 5 stars focusing particular attention on the genre and style of bossa nova arrangement which was very popular back in the 1960's. I period in music that I remember quiet fondly.

In the summer of 1964 I was 7 years old. 3M/Revere had manufactured a machine that was something between an 8-Track and a cassette forerunner--it weighed a ton and played cartridges that were about 5 inches square and a half inch thick in which magnetic tape was kept on a single disk. You'd stack these cartridges up in the player's loader, and they would play through, being wound onto a disk inside the machine, and then they would be automatically rewound back to the cartridge, which would drop on an incline in the loader while the next cartridge lowered to be unspooled. This was the greatest thing since sliced bread. My dad would bring new cartridges up to our lake place just about every weekend--everything from the "Gypsy" Original Cast Recording to Horowitz to Paul Revere and the Raiders (that last one for my older brothers). "Fly Me to the Moon" by the Bossa Nova Pops was in our collection with its golden Kapp label, and I played it so often, first thing every morning and at least once more during the day--or simply repeated it (there was a slide-lever for that function) that my dad finally ordered me to QUIT PLAYING THAT MUSIC!!!! I still have the player AND the cartridge somewhere around here--and it still played OK 15 or so years ago, though I had to jam a kitchen knife in to keep the play button held down and functional--but the chance to finally get this on CD will make a very Merry Christmas for yours truly. Just listening to the sample of the title track had me brimming with joy. That arrangement is so cool, just one of the greatest recordings EVER!

I remember listening to this wonderful music by Joe Harnell when I was only a teenager. I was born in 1960, so I was very young in the 60s when Joe Harnell's music was played on the radio. It was a pleasure to listen to it as a teenager, and now 30 years later it is still a pleasure to hear the wonderful music arrangement of a talented composer.
It's been said to enjoy life, one must love and explore different things. I'm glad I explored Joe Harnell's music.

I too grew up listening to this in the early 70's thanks to my wonderful aunt who taught me to love bossa nova - she had all the classics from Doris Day to Frank Sinatra to this wonderful piano rendition of Flight of the Phoenix from Joe Harnell - I have been looking for this all over the place! I'm so HAPPY to find it on Amazon - this cd is truly a masterpiece and a brilliant compilation of musical harmonies. The piano is central to all of the tracks and Joe Harnell was a gifted talent; for all you music aficionados you cannot afford to be without this 'record' if you are a fan of the bossa nova movement. If you love Stan Getz, Antonio Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, etc., you will love this cd!! Thank you Amazon!

Other than this Collectors' Choice CD re-issue of his 1963 Kapp KL-1318 LP, the only other CDs covering the music of conductor/arranger Joe Harnell (born Joseph Harnell in the Bronx on August 2, 1924) are reproductions of those LPs he did for TV shows like The Incredible Hulk, V, The Bionic Woman and others of that nature.

He only had three nationally charting instrumental singles (not surprising since albums were his main focus), but his first and best is included here, tat being Fly Me To The Moon - Bossa Nova, a # 4 Adult Contemporary (AC) and # 14 Billboard Pop ot 100 in January-February 1963 on Kapp 497. Unfortunately, the B-side, a great version of Harlem Nocturne, was not part of the album, and so finding it in mp.3 format is so far impossible.

The same applies to his other two charting sides, the April 1963 # 97 Hot 100 cover of Diane, first a hit in 1928 for the Nat Shilkret orchestra, which came out on Kapp 521 b/w The Walking Song, and the October 1967 # 36 AC Serenata, issued on Columbia 44244 b/w Guantanamera.

As nice as it is to see those memorable album reproductions, what many collectors would really enjoy is a compilation containing those 6 sides of his three hits, plus some of the following from among his other singles in a tidy, concise 20-track CD:

You Are The Song/(Can This Be) The Way Of Love? - Epic 5-9304 - 1959 promo
Time On My Hands/Without A Song - Epic 5-9406 - 1960
Our Day Will Come/My One And Only Love - Kapp 528 - 1963
Hud/Come Away With Me - Kapp 541 - 1963
The Dawn Of Love/Who Am I Kiddin'? - Kapp 562 - 1963
When The World Was Young/You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You - Kapp 579 - 1964
I'll Set My Love To Music/Sonato Portugese - Kapp 604 - 1964
