Recorded in New York City January 23, 1961

Orchestra conducted by Samuel Baron and including: Dave Soyer, Charles McCracken, Sterling Hunkins cellos; Urbie Green, Merv Gold, Dick Hixon trombones; John Barrows, James Buffington, Earl Chapin French horns; Joe Wilder trumpet; Charles Russo clarinet; Jerome Roth oboe; Don Hammond flute; Arthur Weisberg bassoon; Bernie Leighton piano; Milt Hinton bass; Sol Gubin drums

"In scoring Since LIFE Began Wilder restates, in musical terms of the present, the pace and moods of the era since LIFE's beginning in 1936. Here is a score that not only adds rich dimension to the visual story as it unfolds but provides fuller meaning for the narrative as well.

This work displays the best of Wilder talents - melodic brilliance and virtuosity in orchestrations; evocative passages combining the dissonance of modern serious music with the fresh, uninhibited, swinging sounds of jazz; and respect for the individual art of the musician."
