Bernard Herrmann conducts The London Festival Recording Ensemble on this album containing four intriguing orchestral arrangements - each a different face of the jazz genre. Known as Alfred Hitchcock's favorite composer, Herrmann wields the baton on famous jazz compositions of Darius Milhaud, Kurt Weill, George Gershwin, and Igor Stravinsky.
The Four Faces Of Jazz was produced by Raymond Few in 1973 and released on London Records. Mobile Fidelity mastered this album from the original master tape using their proprietary GAIN System technology.
