The Legend Of Pele - Arthur Lyman

The Legend Of Pele
Sounds Of Arthur Lyman
HIFI Record R813

Lyman throws in all the "exotic" bells and whistles... not to mention his bird calls on this set that was recorded in the Aluminum Dome on the grounds of the Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel, Waikiki.

What a treat it must have been to see these four guys do this set live. This concept is based on the story of Pele as explained in the back cover copy. Each song blends into the next on the disc to create a flowing sonic impression or story of "The Legend". Terrific stuff.
