The Instruments of the Dance Orchestra/Olde Englyshe

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
In the year 2000, the Dutton Vocalion label reissued two nifty albums by British bandleader Ted Heath. Recorded in 1958, Olde Englyshe consists of 12 traditional British melodies transformed into accessibly polite Khrushchev-era dance music using arrangements by Mafter Horrox.

In 1960, Ted Heath recorded The Instruments of the Dance Orchestra, an album apparently directed at children yet perfectly enjoyable for adults who don't mind Heath's friendly narrations as he introduces each instrument in the ensemble, including a big beefy bass saxophone operated by E.O. Pogson. The nicest segments that do not contain narration are "Skylark," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "In a Sentimental Mood." Certainly not the most progressive pair of albums ever released under Ted Heath's name, but lots of fun and especially recommended for children who are willing to listen to music that was originally issued on long-playing phonograph records.
