The 13 Fingers Of Sir Julian

Canadian Sunset

Hugo & Luigi Producers
RCA Victor LPM-2372

From the back cover: When you listen to Sir Julian play the organ, you'll be convinced he actually has been gifted with thirteen fingers. To be sure, all he has is the normal complement – eight fingers and two thumbs. But when he sits in at the organ, he plays like one possessed of a least three more fingers than is normal. If the title of this album startles you, listen to The Thirteen Fingers of Sir Julian… and see what we mean.

The three Sir Julian LPs I have in the collection are all fun plays. Julian arrangements are creative and feature just enough space age pop/jazz touches to keep me interested.

I selected Canadian Sunset to share Julian's "jazz" vibe.
