Dynamic Percussion - Ray Korwin

Chant Of The Moon
Dynamic Percussion
Ray Korwin And His Percussionist
P.R.I. Records SPL-6

Here's a curious 7 inch 33 on a budget label. Ray Korwin can't be found online by me.

Korwin creates a typical, but not unpleasant early 60s "Command" percussion/ping pong sound. However, there are a few tracks found on the disc that smack more of late 50s exotic. The sample above being the most fun.

A Bushel And A Peck
Warm Night Wind
O Sole Mio
Glow Worm
Finiculi Finicula
Chant Of The Moon
El Choclo


  1. Ray can't be found because he may not exist. What you have here is a classic exotica number by Robert Drasnin from his 1960 LP Voodoo. It's on You Tube. Go & compare.

    1. Thanks Bob. Good ear! I've actually got a copy of that LP... but didn't make the connection. Happy Holidays!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
