Zither In 3/4 Time - Ruth Welcome

Zither In 3/4 Time
Ruth Welcome
Capitol T 1318

The cover of this album is a misleading. I expected the music to be a bit more "stiff". However, the sound of the set is almost "topical" or Hawaiian. Welcome plays the Zither like a steel guitar against the vibraphone.

Welcome creates and sustains a soft thematic mood much in the same way that Jackie Gleason does on his romantic projects.
