"All visitors ashore!""¦ was the familiar call from the ports of Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and our beloved Hawai`i in the 1950s. All who stepped foot on shore fell in love with the mystique and the romance of these magical islands including two distinguished American composers, Alfred Newman and Ken Darby. Combined, these two brilliant men have composed for such award-winning films as The King and I, Wuthering Heights and How the West Was Won. After experiencing the islands, and working with similar arrangements on films South Pacific and Bird of Paradise, they found it impossible to put down their conductor batons and ignore the wondrous and alluring sights and sounds of Hawai`i. In 1960, they produced for Capitol Records, this album, Ports of Paradise, calling it "a culmination and most definitive expression of the enchantment which (they) have found in the moods, the repose, the mystery of those far-off places."Learn More
