Arthur Lyman On Broadway

Arthur Lyman On Broadway
HiFi Record
R 818
1959

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
South Pacific
Porgy And Bess
