Arthur Lyman On Broadway
From the back cover: These shows need no introduction, nor for that matter does Arthur Lyman of Exotic Sounds fame.
A stunning four track set that seems almost "conceptual". Lyman's effort blends show tunes and his "exotica/jazz/small combo" sound to invent something "new". A subtle, bluesy, funky trip that must have been a real treat to hear when performed live.
Group members at this time would have been, along with Lyman, Alan Soares, Archie Grant and Harold Chang.
Available from online outlets, so I will not be posting a sample.
My Fair Lady
The King And I
Porgy And Bess
