The Green Leaves of Summer

June 6, 2018 at 6:09 pm Leave a comment

“The Green Leaves of Summer” was composed by Dimitri Tiomkin with lyrics by Paul Francis Webster. The song was written for the 1960 film The AlamoIt was performed in the film’s score by the vocal group The Brothers Four. In 1961 the song was nominated for an Academy Award.

The Ventures included an instrumental version of the song on their 1961 album “Colorful Ventures” — each track of which had a color in the title. While my instrumental arrangement was inspired by theirs, it is not a cover — and actually the arrangement is arguably more in the manner of Hank Marvin and the Shadows than the Ventures.
