Geoff Love information:
Geoff Love (4 September 1917 -- 8 July 1991) was a British easy-listening and disco orchestra leader. He was born in the industrial town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire. His father was a mixed race American born guitarist and dancer and his mother an actress. As a child, Love began to learn to play the violin but then switched to the trombone. He played with Jan Ralfini's band and then embarked on a solo career before military service during World War II in the King's Royal Rifles. After the war he played with Harry Gold.
He recorded at least two albums with Shirley Bassey in 1959 and 1960.
Love also recorded under the name 'Manuel & The Music of The Mountains', in which guise he released several works on EMI's Studio 2 Stereo record label including a single entitled "Rodrigo's Guitar Concerto De Aranjuez (Theme from 2nd Movement)", an interpretation of the "Concierto de Aranjuez". This reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in 1976. He recorded many albums for MFP, often featuring film or television themes or other instrumental or disco music. One of these was called Glad with Love -- featuring the pianist Mrs Mills and Geoff Love on a singalong together -- with studio audience participation.
In the 1970s, Love appeared with the singer Max Bygraves in the Thames Television music show (for ITV) SingalongaMax. Also, in the early 1970s, under the name 'Mandingo', Love worked with session musicians to produce a lively approximation of African rhythms, according to a plan by record label executives intended to capitalise on a surge of interest in African music.
Love, who died in London at the age of 73, was married to Joy and had two sons, Adrian and Nigel. His son Adrian Love was a successful DJ on BBC Radio and commercial radio.
