Arranged By: Hal Goldstein, SESAC(100.00%)
Music Of Freeplay, SESAC(100.00%)
Composer extraordinaire Hal Goldstein is back, this time with new arrangements of some classic tracks, giving them a fresh update and shiny feel. "Take Me Out To The Ball Game becomes a revved up rock track, replete with driving rhythms and a red-hot guitar joining the traditional organ. "Hail To The Chief" gets a reggae treatment, with languid, beachy rhythms and horns mellowly blowing the POTUS melody. "Home On The Range" is a jazzy lounge track! A warm piano plays the leads as an easy-stepping rhythm section coyly keeps time. Hal's smooth and respectful arrangements bring out the soul of the song while adding fun and upbeat flavors to update the classic melodies.
