Album3 1963 JimmyWith Jimmy Scott

Album: Jimmy Scott, Falling In Love Is Wonderful, Tangerine, TRC 1501 (Monaural)/TRCS 1501 (Stereo), 22 June 1963.

Recorded with uncredited musicians at the United Recordings Studios, Hollywood, California in 1962.

Arranged by Gerald Wilson.

David Ritz wrote (in The Guardian of 9 January 2003): “Charles thought Scott’s problem was that he didn’t have the right material. That was when he came up with the idea for Falling in Love Is Wonderful. ‘My concept was romance,’ said Charles. ‘Make a romantic record you could listen to late at night with your lady. I wanted the kind of record you could play over and over again, where you wouldn’t be bored and the mood stayed steady.'”
