I enjoy percussion albums, but what drew my attention to this one was the involvement of Dick Schory and Joe Morello, two known and respected space age musicians.

From the back cover: The group has also sponsored three annual "Days Of Percussion" featuring clinics, displays, and concerts with such nationally known guest artists as Dick Schory, Frank Arsenault, Duane Thamm, and Joe Morello.

This was a serious high school effort. Enjoy a few samples from this historical curiosity.
