More of Our Favorite Arrangers

Gordon Jenkins is one of the All Time Great Arrangers.

He’s the man behind the scenes for Nilsson’s Must Own classic, A Little Touch Of Schmillson in The Night, a Desert Island Disc for yours truly.

His work for Nat King Cole is beyond fault.

Jenkins worked with Nat King Cole on four albums for Capitol: Love Is the Thing (1957), The Very Thought of You (1958), Every Time I Feel the Spirit (1959) and Where Did Everyone Go? (1963). 

He did three albums with Sinatra for Capitol: A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra (1957), Where Are You? (1957) and No One Cares (1959) and five more after Sinatra moved to Reprise: All Alone (1962), September of My Years (1965), Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back (1973), “Future” suite – Trilogy: Past Present Future (1980) and She Shot Me Down (1981).
