WIth Bells On - Sid Bass And His Orchestra

The House Is Haunted
With Bells On
Tintinnabulation
Sid Bass and His Orchestra
Vik LX-1112
1958

Original Vik cover and first release. Bass was an inventive artist/arranger. I have two of his albums now (see From Another World). The gimmick Bass features on this album are "bells" and no, the concept doesn't become annoying. There is a wide range of bells tones played throughout, and for the most part, they are used sparingly. The LP is cool.

Recorded at Webster Hall, New York City, July 18, 26 and August 1, 1957.

The engineering on this LP is very good.
