Let's Get Together - Richard Hayman

Turkey Mambo
Let's Get Together
Richard Hayman His Harmonica And Orchestra
Mercury Wing
WING MGM 12100

The terrific cover design is worth the price of admission. The set plays through as a mix of straight mood numbers in addition to tunes that feature Hayman's harmonica.

From the back cover: New England and bred, Richard Hayman is a self-taught harmonica player and musical arranger. At 18 he joined Borrah Minnevitch's world-famed Harmonica Rascals. At 21 he became a member of the Vaughn Monroe group, doing a specialty novelty harmonica act. After several years, he joined the Horace Heidt group, which eventually brought him to Hollywood. Here he played bit roles in a score of musical films, and gained further experience arranging under the expert tutelage of George Still. Hayman, himself, has composed such outstanding instrumentals as Skipping Along and No Strings Attached. Huckleberry Finn and Carriage Trade which were also composed by Hayman are part of this WING Long Play album.
