Space Escapade - Les Baxter

Space Escapade
Les Baxter
Capitol Records T968

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Also well documented due to the collectible nature of the cover art. Presented here to add scans of the original sleeve that came with the copy I found

Non-experimental or spacey sounding, none-the-less this is another stylistically typical well arranged, nicely turned out orchestrated Baxter mood package. I heard a few piano touches that may have been influenced by Ferrante & Teicher's experimental period that included the release of Soundblast Westminster WP 6041 released in 1956.
