Pete Rugolo was one of the 20th century's most gifted and influential arranger-composers working in the fields of big bands and jazz. Born in Sicily in 1915, his parents emigrated to the States in 1920, a move that saw Pete grow up in California. He studied composition at Mills College, California, with classical composer Darius Milhaud. Rugolo's big break came in 1945 when, having been discharged from the Army, he joined the Stan Kenton Orchestra as its chief arranger, composer and occasional pianist. During the 1950s and '60s Rugolo recorded a series of acclaimed big band albums under his own name, two of which are compiled on this release, and both of which include an all-star line-up. Music for Hi-Fi Bugs (1956) & Brass in Hi-Fi (1957) feature the talents of musicians such as Maynard Ferguson, Don Paladino and Don Fagerquist (trumpets), Barney Kessel (guitar), André Previn (piano), Shelly Manne (drums), Larry Bunker (percussion) and Frank Rosolino (trombone), who perform Rugolo's inventive, swinging arrangements to perfection. Titles include Fawncy Meeting You, Snowfall, These Foolish Things, Temptation and All the Things You Are as well as seven Rugolo originals such as Later Team, Oscar's and Pete's Blues and Brass at Work.
