The Romantic Moods Of Jackie Gleason (Box Set)
Released: Nov 1996
Label: Capitol Records
Kicking off with Gleason's theme "Melancholy Serenade" (an apt description for his entire oeuvre), this definitive two-disc set covers all bases of The Great One's romantic musical universe. Lush strings behind lone jazz soloists dominate, with some gentle swingers, and a couple of easy listening 1960s tunes thrown added as spice.
