Redskin Romp - Charlie Barnet

Along The Santa Fe Trail
Redskin Romp
Charlie Barnet And His Orchestra
Arrangements by Billy May
Cover: Jim Flora
RCA Victor LPM 1091

From Billboard - June 4, 1955: Here's a tastefully conceived and executed album of Barnet instrumentals featuring 12 arrangements by Billy May of tunes with American Indian title themes, ranging from the familiar "Cherokee" and a swingy "Iroquois" to an exciting "Comanche War Dance." Thruout the LP, May's distinctive style (particularly noteworthy on a unique version of "Indian Love Call") furnishes a perfect showcase for Barnet's driving beat and musicianship.
