Notes & Reviews:

This latest release in Guild's Light Music Series features famous composers of symphonies, marches, jazz and just about everything in-between. This varied selection, mainly from the inter-war years, qualifies as "eclectic." If anyone needs convincing that "Light Music" covers a wide variety of styles and performances, the proof is on this CD.

Bright, breezy and wittily orchestrated, Arthur Wood gets this disc off the blocks in fine style with his work on behalf of The Arcadians...By contrast there's a delightfully smoochy Lullaby Land courtesy of Reginald King, a Boswell 'mood music' recording, and an amusing Dwarf's Patrol fantasy from The Little Salon Orchestra.
