Album offering twelve items prepared and arranged by musician, arranger and composer John Keating (Scotland, 1927), leading his splendid big band, integrated this time by a total of 23 musicians under his baton (five trumpets, five saxophones, clarinet and flute even, four trombones, four horns and bass, piano, guitar, drum and conga). The recording session was held at Decca Studios in West Hampstead (London) in front of an invited audience, which provides the live environment. In the 60s swing music had a time of rebirth, despite the cost of maintaining great bands, and Keating wanted to revisit with this recording major playing styles of swing of the 40s.
Former Boyzone member Ronan Keating is one of those performers who parents love their kids to listen to - and given his penetration of "adult contemporary" radio station playlists, that may well be because the parents want to put his CD on while the kids are at school. Keating, or Ronan to his fans, is the well-dressed, all-round nice guy that has clean lyrics, a young family of his own and sings music generic enough to engage audiences both younger and older.
Album LP released in 1962 by the prestigious Decca-London Phase 4, a compilation of 12 songs specifically prepared and arranged by the musician, arranger and composer John Keating (Scotland, 1927), leading his combo instrumental orchestra and chorus. Keating, who worked with Ted Heath from 1952 came to compose, produce and arrange for interpreters internationally very well known. For Decca-London Phase 4 arranged and conducted, along with this second album'Temptation', an additional set of disks that introduced so remarkable synthesizer technology. Keating also extended its activities from the world of swing and jazz to a variety of other musical styles.
