Les Baxter - The Soul Of The Drums

Les Baxter And His Orchestra
The Soul Of The Drums
Reprise R9 6100
1963

I was lucky to find this Les Baxter album today that features one of my favorite Baxter covers. This record isn't a heavy tribal drum project as the cover may suggest. This is a great mood set that features a balance between "authentic" folk drumming and the Baxter mood/light pop touch.The stereo engineering is excellent.
