Mr. Lucky Goes Latin - Henry Mancini

Mr. Lucky Goes Latin
Henry Mancini
RCA Victor LSP-2360
1961

For those of you afraid to jump into Mancini... because you think he's way... easy listening. Then you haven't listened to his early stuff. Mancini created some really fabulous fringe hybrid exotica/space age/lounge stuff. This album is a perfect example of blending period trends to create a fresh sound with a Latin touch.

Highly recommend! The album is available on an expensive import CD so I will not be posting a sample.
