Sir Julian - A Knight At The Organ

The Breeze And I
A Knight At The Organ
Sir Julian (Julian Gould)
RCA Victor LPM-2591
1962

Terrific cover art and good exotica/space age album!

From the back cover we learn that Julian played at the age of 15 (1935) with a group called The Swingsters which featured Frank Sinatra. He then worked the Orpheum (a movie house) in Los Angeles. He went on to study with Lausenberg and Wischner earning a Masters from U.C.L.A.

At the time this album was released (also from the back cover) he was in Miami doing a gig at The Playboy Club.

  3. I bought this album recently at a used book/record store here in Atlanta. Gould's work was oddly hypnotic, like that of Walter Wanderly, yet I can't take much of it at one time, similar to a rich cheese plate.
