Les Baxter's Teen Drums


Don't let the corny cover fool you. What looks like an attempt to appeal to the kids is really a collection of Baxter's hippest cuts. Recorded in 1960, "Teen Drums" sounds like the background music to some tropical gangster show: Beatnik jazz puncuated with island rhythms. Baxter takes his usual kitchen sink approach to the music, using sax, trumpet, flute, stand-up bass, steel drum, and every kind of percussion instrument imaginable. Sit back, pour yourself a mai-tai, and feel the magic.
