David Carroll: Percussion in Hi-Fi (mono version)

Nutty exotica sounds from conductor David Carroll. Piano, bass, guitar, and harp join six percussionists as they bang out some truly manic arrangements. "Hell's Bells" and "The Cricket" will make your day, and "Chimes of Swing" features an improv jazz chimes solo, which I was not heretofore aware had happened in the annals of music. The next blog post will feature this album's interesting twin...

  1. I dug this out of the dusty record stacks in the band room in junior high back in the late 1970s and remember that I really liked "The Cricket" and "The Chimes of Swing." I never imagined I would hear this again so thank you!
