More Bagels And Bongos - Irving Fields

More Bagels And Bongos
Irving Fields Trio
Decca Records DL 4114

Available from online vendors, but marketed without the original cover art which adds up to at least half the fun of collecting this album.

From the back cover: Irving Fields, the celebrated pianist, arranger, and composer of such favorites as Miami Beach Rhumba and Managua Nicaragua, is also widely known for the surprisingly large "orchestral" sound of his versatile trio, which appears at the finest clubs throughout the country.

From Billboard - May 1, 1961: The veteran pianist, arranger and composer, Irving Fields, offers his second LP of Yiddish favorites set in Latin American tempos. Most of them come off very well including "Hors Merengue," "My Hometown Girl," "Spark of Jewish Pride" and "Papirossen". The set has a good sound and should provide Fields' flock of fans with many fine hours of listening and dancing pleasure.
