Morton Gould - Jungle Drums

Jungle Drums
Morton Gould and His Orchestra
RCA (LM-1994) 1956
RCA LSC-1994 1960 (stereo release)

Early "exotica" music from Gould featuring wonderful covers. The music is more symphonic in nature and not heavy on "jungle drums" as suggested by the cover art.

The recording was popular enough to prompt RCA to release a stereo pressing some four years later.

  1. I just love Exotica. Love the bird sounds. Very light & airy, but you are right, no jungle drums! I don't think they have harp in jungle music.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
