Half Satin Half Latin - Les Elgart

Slaughter On Tenth Avenue
Half Satin
Half Latin
Les Elgart And His Orchestra
Columbia CL 1567

From the back cover: This exciting new collection presents the Elgart complement of three trumpets, three trombones, five saxes and rhythm in a dozen arrangements as modern as tomorrow. The Latin tempos of Side One add rhythmic spice to the mellow Elgart sound, and the interplay of ballads and swingers on Side Two provides a perfect balance for your listening pleasure.
