Let's Belly Dance With Gus Vali

Caravan #9
Let's Belly Dance With Gus Vali
P.I. Records, Inc. PI-LPS-93
1973

Let's Belly Dance or Sex Sells.

From the back cover: Despite his B.A. in Flute from Manhattan College and an M.A. in musical education Gus Vali is still able to retain the true folk quality of Middle Eastern music. His great talent in this area undoubtedly has been influenced by his heritage.

Also from the back cover: As a youngster he was a featured performer with the great bands of Artie Shaw, Johnny Long and Jan August.

Vali arranged and conducted on this album along with playing the flute and clarinet.
