The name Perry LaMarca is one you may not know...yet. But the chances are good that you've heard his work. Perry's credits include music for Disney, Disneyland, Universal, the America's Cup, and numerous commercial jingles that have aired extensively on radio and television. Since 1991, Perry has also worked with Ray Conniff, who still enjoys enormous popularity in Latin America; he functions as Mr. Conniff's recording director, assistant conductor and keyboardist.
As a young boy, when Perry was not practicing the piano (which he began at age seven), he was listening to his parents' Percy Faith, Hugo Montenegro and Ray Conniff albums, carefully studying each arrangement. By the time he was in high school, Perry had mastered the art of arranging and was writing his own charts--his love of beautiful music was obvious in the musical construction, harmony and instrumentation. In college, Perry studied privately under the tutelage of film music maestros John Williams and Bruce Broughton. Perry's passion for the film music genre is evident when you carefully listen to his arrangements and recordings.
Perry's talents shine brightest in his life-long love of beautiful music. He has produced three albums of easy listening music in Japan, where there is still an appreciation of instrumental recordings. His CDs are also available in China and receive considerable airplay there.
The recordings on the Parfait Records CD are quite special. Perry originally produced them exclusively for broadcast on easy listening radio stations and they have never before been available for purchase.
