About Orson Welles
A true artistic genius, Orson Welles forever transformed the worlds of theater, radio, and, most spectacularly, film. Welles was also blessed with a rich, mellifluous voice that lent a little class to a myriad of inferior commercial and film products. None of this quite prepares you for his short-lived career in mood music. Welles lays out regret-tinged love raps that come on like Barry White reading from Proust's Remembrance of Things Past while the backing music swells to amorous heights. This can be enjoyed as a great man's curious folly, a campy lounge classic, or best of all, as high-toned Quiet Storm for the upper crust.
