Al Caiola and Orchestra, “Guitars, Woodwinds & Bongos” (United Artists Ultra Audio LP), 1960

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:06 am

Here is a classic album from the Golden Age of space-age bachelor pad pop-jazz (or is it jazzy pop?), played by the best and hippest studio musicians of the day, here featuring the lead guitars of both Al Caiola and Bucky Pizzarelli, along with a boatload of exotic percussion instruments and other novelty instruments (such as a bassoon), calculated to produce a frothy, jazzy, ping-pong-ing, 1960-futuristic musical Pop Art painting that would have brought out all the hidden dimensions of your expensive hi-fi system.

Music like this is timeless, in that is so richly captures the zeitgeist of a particular period, and in so many dimensions, it will always provide a lush time capsule for those so included to take the trip.

Thanks to the excellent Nuggets From The Moon channel on You Tube (you need to subscribe to their channel and enjoy hundreds of quality rare LP’s of lounge, lounge-jazz, and soundtracks. Sit back, be sure to be BETWEEN the stereo speakers, and enjoy…..
