David Carroll

A multi-talented studio room arranger, maker, songwriter, conductor, and music movie director who scored a high 10 hit in 1965 with an instrumental rendition from the Hans Engelmann-penned “Melody of Like,” David Carroll was created in Taylorville, Illinois in 1913. Carroll released a well-received string of orchestral/easy hearing dance LPs through the ’50s and ’60s, the majority of which highlighted his very own compositions — a Quincy Jones also added some tunes aswell. As the musical movie director for Mercury Information during that period, he played on the bevy of Best 40 hits, like the Staff Slashes’ “Sh-Boom” and Rusty Draper’s “Moving, Whispering Sands.” When his tenure with Mercury was up, Carroll became a member of the Smothers Brothers and offered as the bandleader for the duo’s street show music group. Carroll passed on in San Jose, California in 2008 at age 94.
