Notes & Reviews:

Leroy Anderson has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was described by John Williams as "one of the great American masters of light orchestral music". This album has 23 superlative tracks and while Sleigh Ride is quoted as "performed & recorded by a wider range of musical artists than any other piece in the history of western music", Blue Tango also reached No.1 in Billboard and was the first purely orchestral piece to sell a million.
