What about this one, is it Mancini's or another artist ?

Probably another artist, but it is hard to tell definitively from the front cover alone.


its not only a cover there are many photos

Thanks.

It is hard to say.

It could be Mancini downplaying his own involvement for contractual reasons.

Or, the arranger/conductor credits may be deliberately vague to mislead customers into thinking they are buying a real Mancini album.

Either could be possible.

Incidentally, if anyone can shed light (no pun intended) on this 1994 release of the Laserlight label:

Henry Mancini ?– Peter Gunn - see: https://www.discogs.com/Henry-Mancini-Peter-Gunn/master/1195063

I'd be grateful. The interpretations are pretty good (not all from the named TV series) but clearly not original.


This is "A Percussion Salute To Mancini" put together by Frankie Capp.

THANK YOU!!! - I'm so pleased to have this info.

I can now replace those "???" I use in the artist field ... and have proper artwork.

Now for the next query: do you happen to know the source of ... smile

Thanks, again, much appreciated.

I'm going to post some of the albums if I can find them on YouTube.

Here is the Ray Ellis "Peter Gunn" album on MGM:

Here is the Frankie Capp "Tribute to Mancini" album.

The original track called "A Bell for John" is really good and somewhat Mancini-esque. It comes in at the 13:40 mark.

Just from reading this thread, I went exploring and found....

"Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar", a 2004 compilation album produced by James R. Jensen and released on Solid Air Records. Jensen asked the guitar players on his label to perform some of their favorite Mancini compositions. The resulting album earned a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album in 2005. (All this info from Wikipedia.)

I found it all on YouTube and went immediately to "The Sweetheart Tree", a theme that doesn't always make it to these kind of albums. Ya better love a lot of acoustic guitar in one sitting to enjoy this album.

There's also "Sarah Vaughan Sings the Mancini Songbook" released in 1965. It leads off with "How Soon", another song that doesn't get enough attention. The whole album is terrific.

It looks like Richard Hayman did a Mancini album for Naxos.

The Pink Guitar mention reminded me that I have a different guitar Mancini album--by Royce Campbell. It's called A Tribute To Henry Mancini. Haven't played it in years. I just looked on Campbell's website--he's also got a solo guitar Mancini album plus many more. He played with Mancini for 20 years, his site says.

Confusingly, this album is also available digitally as "Dave Pell Plays Henry Mancini."

I forgot the recent-ish "Peter Gunn" album by Steven Richman, which uses the actual charts from the two Mancini "Peter Gunn" albums.

I don't have this. I give them high marks for effort, but a couple of the tracks just didn't fall into the right groove.
