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.

Found Some Better Album Covers!


Here are some better album covers to go with previous posts. The records that were included in that ten set volume only has sleeves. So I initially took photos of the albums that were displayed on the actual album cover of The Worlds Finest Music. That's why they look a little off. So instead of re-doing the files, I thought better of it and just uploaded them into a separate folder and here they are!

COOL PERCUSSION






I found this set of 10 albums just last week in my search for vinyl. This one particular album is by John Evans and the Big Band entitled, Cool Percussion. Now I consider this to be a Big Band / Jazz album more than a percussion album because it really dose not really feature any percussions like one would expect to hear, like in Persuasive Percussions. None the less I really enjoyed this album and feel that it's definitely worth posting as I'm sure you will agree.


JOHN EVANS COOL PERCUSSION
01 C JAM BLUES
02 LINE FOR LYONS
03 CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS
04 SWINGING THE BLUES
05 JUMPIN' WITH SYMPHONY SID
06 SCRAPPLE FROM THE APPLE

OFF BEAT PERCUSSION PRODUCE BY ENOCH LIGHT


Well today I was out looking for LP's and I came across this album by chance because it was in a genre that I did not expect it to be. It makes up for yesterday when an album entitled Provocative Piano by Dick Hyman slipped by me via a two handed scavenger that was flipping through albums as if the end of the world was coming in thirty seconds. Anyway as you can see by the post title, this album is produced by Enoch Light and features the talents of Don Lamond and his orchestra which in my opinion, is a great combination!


OFF BEAT PERCUSSION
01 FORTY-SECOND STREET
02 DO NOTHIN' TILL YOU HEAR FROM ME
03 LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE
04 IT DON'T MEAN A THING IF IT AIN'T GOT THAT SWING
05 IT'S BEEN A LONG, LONG TIME
06 DRUMS IN MY HEART
07 I WON'T DANCE
08 CHEEK TO CHEEK
09 I'M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT
