Charlie Calello Orchestra:CALELLO SERENADE 1979 LP

6 Jul

A phenomenon of the very earliest days of disco, when producers of disco records
would enlist the talents of symphony orchestras to provide the lush strings,
brassy horns and penetrating tympani that were the trademark of some of the best
disco productions – the disco orchestra was born. One of the finest examples on record is
The Charlie Calello Orchestra’s “Calello Serenade” album, originally released in
1979. Calello, a seasoned producer, arranged and produced Odyssey’s hit
“Native New Yorker.” Besides boasting the aforementioned talents of symphony
orchestra players, “Calello
Serenade” also features session vocalists Luther Vandross, Fonzi Thornton, Cissy Houston and Jocelyn Brown. The album features a disco reworking of the 1940’s Louis
Prima big band hit “Sing, Sing, Sing” which became a massive club hit.
