Hip Hoppin' Grasshoppers
Jack de Mello has an amazing and fascinating career. Jack also composed and orchestrated music for Hanna Barbera for the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Magilla Gorilla, Top Cat and Ricochet Rabbit. He served as musical director of NBC in San Francisco and has composed nearly 500 commercials and jingles over the years
Jack recorded close to 160 albums of all types of music in some of the best studios around the world (including Decca Studios in London, Barclay Studios in Paris, RCA in Rome, major studios in Hollywood, New York, and Chicago). He recorded, arranged and popularized Hawaiian music and his arrangements have been performed by the London Philharmonic, the Tokyo Symphony, the Victor Concert Orchestra and the NHK Orchestra among others.
It is an honor to have Jack compose a work with the GPO Harp. This is a piece I hope to play on my own harp.
