Music for Bachelors - Henri René and His Orchestra

Music for Bachelors
Henri Rene, as a backroom music exec in the early modern period, he's big news in the history of the biz. In our world he is more acclaimed as one of the originators of innovations like what is today known as Space Age Bachelor pad music. He was also as a producer, arranger, and exec instrumental in creating RCA's legendary living stereo and stereo action series! Rene was born in New York City, but his parents moved back to Germany, and Rene grew up in Berlin, studying at the Royal Academy of Music in Berlin. Eventually he became Musical Director for RCA's German affiliate Electrola, as well as for the famed German movie studio, UFA. Returning to the U.S. in 1936 he became musical director for the international department of RCA Victor. In 1941, he formed the first continental-styled small pop orchestra in the US. In the 1950s, he returned to RCA as musical director in International, backing a variety of singing stars, such as Harry Belafonte and Eartha Kitt. This first collection of some of Rene's finest 1950s work uses one of his most famous covers, which features the lovely Jayne Mansfield posed seductively in a negligee, busy on the telephone (presumably calling her favorite bachelor to come over check out her hi-fi). Super collection of romantic sounds for your rendezvous!
