The Modern Touch of Marty Paich

Marty Paich

On this show, we're examining the work of one of the great jazz arrangers: Marty Paich. Inspired by the large ensembles of Miles Davis and Gil Evans, but with a classical-music pedigree, Paich helped develop that cool, west coast sound in the 1950s, before moving onto more commercial ventures in the 1960s and beyond. We'll hear some of his instrument work with his own orchestra and with Chet Baker, plus we'll hear some of the arrangements he made for Mel Tormé, Ella Fitzgerald, and Ray Charles.
