Long before labels--the music contained on this cd was definitely "out there." A boon to arrangers and players who thought there could be more in the creative experience. Like Sauter/Finnegan and other pioneers--much of this disc is quite simply ahead of its time. Ping pong effects and all. Head and shoulders above the Command Classics stuff. There are 3 volumes of these early RCA adventures--made for adventurous tastes and long before Capitol and the hordes gave it a category. Ultra lounge at some of it’s best.
