ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Toronto Starlight Orchestra sounds like swingers having a time of their lives!"
- John Edward Liddle, Conductor, Clinician, Music Director & Trumpet Soloist with the celebrated Kings of Swing


"Open yourself to the sounds of this fine ensemble ... they are a must at any event or occasion."
- Denis Mastromonaco, Assistant Conductor with Opera Mississauga and York Symphony Orchestra


"Leigh Graham has a satiny swing in her voice and a candor to her performance which makes the delightful interpretation of her material like the soda in the scotch ... a charming entertainer!"
- George Wall, Grasshopper Jazz and Blues


Produced in June 2004, this exciting collector's edition cd is a compilation of a series of live recordings in Toronto which features Leigh Graham (www.leighgraham.com), a sensational vocalist who has hosted live entertainment on board Celebrity cruise ships and in many clubs around Toronto. The CD showcases 15 of the orchestra's most requested songs.

The Toronto Starlight Orchestra (www.starlightorchestra.ca) is one of the finest ballroom dance orchestras in Canada. Professionally managed and staffed by talented vocalists and musicians, this world-class dance orchestra is distinguished from contemporary big bands by its delightful versatility and stylish refinement under the leadership of artistic director Don Beaupre and conductors Gerald Reidt, David Lessy and Bill Buchan.

Proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to international agencies such as UNICEF (www.unicef.org), World Vision (www.worldvision.org), Oxfam (www.oxfam.org), CARE (www.care.org), Doctors Without Borders (www.msf.org) and the Red Cross (www.redcross.org) through the Global Poverty Relief Foundation (www.gprf.net) to support disaster and poverty relief programs in less developed communities outside Canada.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Soooo much fun!
This is a great collection of awesome songs. Leigh has a beautiful and stylish voice that lifts the music to great heights.
ADD THIS CD TO YOUR COLLECTION! IT'S WELL WORTH IT!

Bring back those wonderful memories!
The orchestra sounds just the way they did when I first heard them perform at one of their concerts in Toronto last year.

I used to do recordings in professional studios earlier in my musical career and I am accustomed to the routine of having to record and re-record bits and pieces of every song till the producer decides that everything sounds just right, and so that the engineers have enough material to do their edits with.

The Starlight Orchestra, however, has instead chosen to put together a CD from unedited live recordings ... and I admire their courage for having done that!

So what you'll hear on this CD are energetic, honest and unpretentious live recordings with no overdubs! No second chances! Like a live concert in your living room.

I hope their music will bring back wonderful memories, as it does for me of prom nights and dances in gorgeous ballrooms.

Come on and buy their CDs. They have another Christmas CD, too. Be a good sport and help the charities they support!
