Everybody's Favorites - Jose Melis

Clair De Lune
Everybody's Favorites
Jose Melis
Mercury SR 60738

Melis's work is too conservative for me. There are bongos backing up Melis on this album, but the songs never spill over into that space age sound. However, side one sports an excellent and engaging cover of Clair De Lune featuring a guitarist that blends his/her work nicely with Melis's subdued approach.

This version is not the version available for purchase/download (that track appears to be a more fully orchestrated version, from another album).
