Product Description

World renowned conductor and arranger John Wilson leads an all-star cast of singers and his eponymous orchestra, comprised of some of the UK's finest musicians, on this dazzling recording of some of the best-loved songs from Hollywood's Golden Age: That's Entertainment: A Celebration of the MGM Film Musical. Most of the scores have been lovingly and painstakingly reconstructed by Wilson, as MGM destroyed the originals in 1969. This is the first time the songs, including "Singin' in the Rain", "Steppin' Out with My Baby", "The Trolley Song", and title track "That's Entertainment", have been recorded in their intended orchestration since the films' original soundtrack recordings.


That's Entertainment: A Celebration of the MGM Film Musical captures The John Wilson Orchestra's record-smashing 2009 Prom concert, which catapulted the 96-member band to stardom and captured the hearts of the British public. With guest performers Kim Criswell, Matthew Ford, Sarah Fox, Seth MacFarlane and Curtis Stigers, the concert was watched by over four million people. This recording captures the joie de vivre of the live experience. The show now comes to the US where it is a PBS National Pledge Drive in August and September of 2012.


Composer, arranger and conductor John Wilson is one of the world's leading experts on the music of Hollywood and Broadway's Golden Age. In addition to his touring with his own orchestra, he has worked closely with Sir Paul McCartney, and also arranged and conducted the music for the Kevin Spacey film Beyond the Sea.
