Hi, Folks -

From the PBS "Chris Botti in Boston" presentation that ran throughout March, 2009, here's "Emmanuel".

"Emmanuel" is one song from the 1970 album "Wings" by French composer Michel Colombier (1939-2004). Wikipedia says:

Petula Clark chose him as her Musical Director and invited him to come with her to the United States. In addition to arranging her material, he co-wrote with her a number of songs. She introduced him to Herb Alpert of A&M Records, who immediately signed him as an artist/composer/performer. This collaboration gave birth to the legendary album Wings. A rock oratorio which made use of a symphony orchestra and choir and prefigured the work of such bands as Queen, it garnered three Grammy Award nominations and spawned a Genie Award-winning television special.

I believe oboe was the main musical voice in the original "Emmanuel" recording.

There's a very nice rendition of "Emmanuel", featuring the inimitable Toots Thielemans on harmonica, at the Colombier website:


Thanks to YouTuber PBS.
