Les Baxter was one of the conductors and arrangers that fostered one of the most magical musical instruments, the human voice. While many others sought new sounds he stood in the grounds, melody and orchestral color with a large choral ensemble. The result is a musical description of luminous color, blending strings, guitars and vocals especially.

Second album of Les Baxter conducting the 101 Strings Orchestra . Baxter accepted the challenge of launching a series of new titles, fluctuating from subjects with simple melodies to excitingly complex orchestral works, which enjoyed an added risk on his image as an orchestrator. In his creative work mixed the sophistication of European styles, African sensuality, the South American rhythm and cheerful English modernity.

World premiere release of intense, evocative Les Baxter score for famous Roger Corman debut in series of Edgar Allan Poe tales starring Vincent Price, filmed for American International in evocatively-colored widescreen. While original session elements have long-since vanished, complete music tracks mixed into mono and assembled for film do remain. Slight variances in levels designed for later addition of dialog & effects in post-production could not be completely avoided but have been minimized during mastering of this CD. As a result, most cues have identical assemblies of film itself, albeit happily without dialog or effects! Film itself was later re-titled THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER. Les Baxter conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1200 copies!

Tikiyaki 5-0 's debut EP is the Orchestra's surf garage band little brother. Stripped down and more raw, 5-0 turns up the volume a bit, and the reverb a whole lot , taking The Tikiyaki sound and breaking it down to a more back to basics approach. Tikiyaki 5-0, is the smaller, pared down version of Tikiyaki Orchestra featuring core members …..Jim Bacchi on guitar, Brian Kassan on Keys and guitar, Jonpaul Balak on Bass, and Pablo Baza on drums…
Mixing tradional 60's style surf with an exotica feel, the band kicks up the energy level on 5-0 original "Supernova" and the Zorba and the Greeks' cult classic "Shockwave" with tons of frenetic pounding surf beats and a hi level reverb assault…

Nat King Cole's album 10th Anniversary proved to be an interesting watershed in his career. First finding fame as a popular jazz pianist leading a trio, Cole gradually added more and more vocals until he had pretty much left jazz behind for a full-time career as a singer. This compilation, issued on LP in 1955, drew from unreleased recordings from both his jazz and easy listening sessions. One can hear Cole's growth as a singer in his jazz tracks, scatting a bit in his "Lulubelle," though it is his impressive piano that dominates another original, "I'm an Errand Boy for Rhythm." "Peaches" is a rather pedestrian affair with the heavy-handed bongos of Jack Costanzo proving to be more of a distraction than a benefit. The easy listening vocals are a mixed bag. "Too Soon" is overwhelmed by Nelson Riddle's strings, though Dave Cavanaugh's campy Western satire "Rough Ridin'" fares better.

The pinnacle of Denny's career, Hypnotique earns a place in history for its achingly beautiful jacket design alone. The same photo shoot also yielded the cover photo for the Denny-produced "Exotic Dreams" by singer Ethel Azama. The music of Hypnotique is just as compelling, producing an effect that certainly must be described as hypnotic, if not occasionally feverish. This can be partially attributed to the help of guests Barbara Smith, John Mechigashari, and Bud Lee on various Japanese instruments. …
