Liberty Premier Poly 120 Sound
Lavish production values are present in the jacket design which features a real piece of burlap fixed to a portion of the front cover. That part of the cover swings open to reveal the track list along with project audio information and copy explaining the link between Martin, Baxter and Zentner.
Essentially, this is Zentner's big band take on Les Baxter tunes that Martin Denny made popular on the Liberty Label.
Buyers expecting a more dramatic Martin Denny brand sound may have been underwhelmed if they were not familiar with Zentner's bright big band approach. On-the-other-hand, I found this set to be one of Zentner's more creative projects.
