vinylRuss Garcia's 'Sounds In the Night' has often been hailed by critics as one of the greatest choral albums ever made. The album transforms traditional jazz/ pop standards into wonderfully haunting pieces for a mixed male and female chorus of nine voices. There aren't many details about 'Sounds In The Night'. Garcia later remarked that he used session singer Marni Nixon on the album, which might imply that the other voices came from Randy Van Horne's ensemble, since Nixon and Van Horne were working together at the time. The choral arrangements by Garcia create a melancholy mood, almost a heavenly, transcendental music, that cannot be compared to anything you have ever heard! TRACKLIST: Side A 1.
