Bud Shank - Girl In Love

Sorry about the slightly frightening album cover. This is a nice pop inflected jazz album from Bud Shank, with the orchestra conducted by fellow sax player Oliver Nelson. Nelson's history is similar to Nelson Riddle, in that he started out as a jazz arranger and eventually moved his way into scoring music for television shows (Ironside, Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman to name a few). Even though the album sounds like Elevator Music at times, there are some tracks (Particularly "Solitary Man") that bounce. Released in 1966, the album is another example of L.A. Session musicians popping up everywhere. Percussionist Frank Capp at the same time was working on The Beach Boys' classic "Pet Sounds" album, and I'm sure many of Nelson's orchestra were as well.
