Now this is what I call a solid Easy Pop album. Well-crafted arrangements and vocals. Alan Copeland’s productions have been issued under varying names: »The Alan Copeland Singers« or »The Alan Copeland Conspiracy«. The album includes slow and soft songs as well as catchier ones.
Cal Tjader may be seem to be the main person here, but the German Claus Ogerman (originally Klaus Ogermann) contributed equally to the album with his arrangements – as in fact was the case with many other albums that he played a crucial role in and that bear his name only on the backside (Tom Jobim, Frank Sinatra, George Benson). It’s one of Ogerman’s early albums, after he immigrated 1959 into the USA and started his remarkable career as an arranger. Look here for a flaming review of the album.
