The exotic sounds and interpretations present throughout these two albums were created by the celebrated Warren Barker, one of the most prolific Hollywood arranger and conductors. The first, “Music of Desire,” is Barker’s thrilling approach to recording the strings in his orchestra. To his new string sound, he added the warmth of wood- winds, the power of horns, and, most important, the compelling rhythms created by his seven-man percussion section. These are sen- suous Latin rhythms tempered by the tenderness of Barker’s caress.
