David Seville is best known to the world as the genius behind those nutty pop recordings by The Chipmunks – but on this album, he emerges as a pretty darn great arranger on his own, without the help of his furry friends! The album's a mixture of hi
bach pad tunes – with a focus on odd instrumentation, odd arrangements, and kind of a mad Esquivel/
Alvin Rey use of different themes. The album's got a number of original tunes – like "Armen's Theme", "Camel Rock", and "The Gift" – but even familiar numbers like "Willow Weep For Me" and "Third Man Theme" are given a nice treatment, very fresh, and very much in the style that keeps us digging for rare loungey gems like this one! There's lots of nice guitar in the mix, too, giving the album a nice modern sound.
