Composer, bandleader and inventor Raymond Scott was among the unheralded pioneers of contemporary experimental music.
Raymond Scott (born Harry Warnow, September 10, 1908 – February 8, 1994) was an American composer, band leader, pianist, record producer, and inventor of electronic instruments. Scott never scored cartoon soundtracks, but his music is familiar to millions because Carl Stalling adapted it in over 120 Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and other Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons.
Even among his supporters, The Rock 'n Roll Symphony is the most controversial album of Raymond Scott's career. Made in 1958 in the earliest days of Everest Records, where Scott was working A&R, it is the one commercial recording he made that reflects his day job as music director of the popular Your Hit Parade television shows. One artist who did benefit from the example of The Rock 'n Roll Symphony was Lawrence Welk - or rather, his arranger George Cates - who replaced the piano with a harpsichord and went onto score a number of hits, including Calcutta, directly modeled on Scott's example.

Even among his supporters, The Rock 'n Roll Symphony is the most controversial album of Raymond Scott's career. Your Hit Parade was sort of the 1950s equivalent to American Idol, except that the performers were not in competition and appeared from week to week; it started on radio in 1936 and gave rise to the first pop charts ever kept.
Episode of Your Hit Parade, originally broadcast 16 of April, 1955. Featuring Dorothy Collins, Russell Arms, Snooky Lanson, and Gisele MacKenzie performing covers of big hits of the day, including "Tweedle Dee", "How Important Can It Be" and "The Ballad of Davy Crockett". A good time capsule of the time. Most noteworthy moment: Raymond Scott's orchestra performing one of their standards complete with surreal special effects! Color.

Raymond Scott (born Harry Warnow, 10 September 1908 – 8 February 1994), was an American composer, orchestra leader, pianist, engineer, electronic instrument inventor and electronic music pioneer. He was born in Brooklyn to a family of Russian-Jewish immigrants. Though Scott never scored cartoon soundtracks, his music is familiar to millions because of its adaptation by Warner Bros. In 1936, Scott formed the "Raymond Scott Quintette", hoping to revitalise swing music through tight, busy arrangements and reduced reliance on improvisation.
