Henry Mancini, His Orchestra and Chorus perform Mancini's opus "Moon River". I recorded this track from the double LP, "This Is Henry Mancini," RCA (VPS-6029). "Moon River" won the 1961 Academy Award for Best Original Song. Audrey Hepburn originally sang the work in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's." The song also won the 1962 Grammy Award for Record of the Year.
