MAMBO BONGO BASH!




Do you know what is better than finding a record like this? Finding a record like this that you like. I was surprise to find this clear/yellow record last week. Usually when I find these records, they aren't anything I like, so needless to say I was quite pleased when I took the record out of it's cover and saw this color. As for the music, bongos piano and vibes, need I say more?

SWINGIN' HI-FI GEORGE SIRAVO




Here's an album by George Siravo that really swings! Hence the name Swingin' Hi-Fi In Studio A. It's in mono but that never stopped me from adding a little reverb to the rip, only this time I used a new vst plug-in called Stereoizer. I think it dose the album justice, so I hope I don't offend any hi-fi purists out there:) Enjoy!

LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE !




I have this album in mono and finally found this stereo version. Unfortunately, not all songs are in stereo. Some songs are in what I call simulated stereo. I don't know how they could put a stereo label on an album that is partially stereo. Anyhow, it's an album that all will enjoy anyway!

4 Lessson In Jazz


Well here it is, finally! This is not my best work. This by far is one of the worst albums with surface noise that I have ever encountered. I tried everything under the sun to clean it up, only making things worse. So I just did a simple hiss and crackle reduction with moderate results. I don't know if it is the album itself or someone's bad phono needle. None the less it is a really a good album and a first jazz album for the Hut.

POWERHOUSE!



Well, originally I bought this album for the cover art. Normally I never listen to anything that has Hammond Organ or any organ for that matter. It always reminds me of weddings and funerals. However, I decided to give a few tracks a listen and I was pleasantly surprised. Buddy Cole has put a whole new spin on organ music for me. If you are a Bugs Bunny fan, you will recognize 'Powerhouse'. I thought the track would be cheesy and corny but it's not. It's actually quite lively and hip. So enjoy this album. You may never look at weddings and funerals the same way again!

PERCUSSION AND BRASS


Percussion and Brass is an album that features the The Grand Award All Star written by Lew Davies. Though written by Davies one will absolutely recognize that this album has Enoch Light written all over it and that is because it was produced and originated by Enoch Light. You get the same great sound and style as you would expect to get, only under a different writer. So sit back and enjoy!

NELSON RIDDLE and the 101 STRINGS



This album is everything I love about Nelson Riddle. He has a sound that is so bright,airy and refreshing. From the bright strings to the rolling reverb, nothing gets lost, every instrument stands out with the full bodied orchestra that takes your senses to dizzying heights! Wow! I guess you can say that I really liked this album and I do. I'm really in my element with this one. Enjoy!

I got a real gem here for you percussion enthusiast! Here you will find some of the most fascinating arrangements by Bob Thompson. Included also is a couple numbers featuring the harpsichord which adds a whole new dimension to an already brilliant album. For a man whose talents mostly consist of classical arrangements, Felix Slatkin is obviously a man of great diversity and talents.

HARMONICA AND PERCUSSION



I'm really curious on when harmonica albums came out. There seems to be quite a few of them out there, which is kind of surprising to me. There's an element about this album that I like. Strange enough, harmonicas and big band / jazz seem to work! I'm guessing that this album came out in the late 50's or early 60's. Is there anyone out there that may have a little history on this album and others like it? What was the reaction of the public and how popular were they.
