The Ultimate In Percussion - Milt Rogers

The Ultimate In Percussion
Milt Rogers And His Orchestra
Dot DLP 3319

Milt Rogers (piano, voice, percussion) - Jack Burger (bongos, percussion) - Roy Harte (drums, percussion) - Ralph Hansell (vibes, marimba, xylophone, percussion) - Justin Gordon (reeds) - Barney Kessel (guitar) - Larry Breen (bass) - Gene Garf (accordion, piano) and Don Ferris (organ).

This is a good 60s percussion album. The arrangements, at first, may seem like Rogers is copying features from period exotica, "ping-pong" and space age goofy fun. But, if you listen to a lot of this type of music, I think that you'll enjoy his subtle, quirky arrangements and creative use of various instruments, including the organ and accordion.
