Les Baxter • The Lost Episode Of Les Baxter

Review by Richie Unterberger
Taken from the soundtrack to a 1961 television broadcast, this is a marginal item of Baxter's discography, given more weight by the space age pop revival of the 1990s, and the fact that little of his work is available on CD. At a mere 18 minutes, and with fidelity (from a video transfer) on par with listenable bootlegs, its appeal is mostly limited to Baxter aficionados. Within those parameters, though, it's not bad, including a version of "Quiet Village." Future Bill Evans drummer Larry Bunker handles vibes, blocks, timpani, bongos, and tambourine; singer Beverly Ford closely mimics the sound of the theremin with her astonishing high-pitch frequencies on "Ruby" and "Lover."

Reseña por Richie Unterberger
Tomado de la banda sonora de una transmisión de televisión de 1961, este es un elemento marginal de la discografía de Baxter, dado más peso por el renacimiento pop de la era espacial de la década de 1990, y el hecho de que poco de su trabajo está disponible en CD. En tan solo 18 minutos, y con fidelidad (de una transferencia de video) a la par de bootlegs escuchables, su atractivo se limita principalmente a los aficionados de Baxter. Dentro de esos parámetros, sin embargo, no está mal, incluida una versión de "Quiet Village". El futuro baterista de Bill Evans Larry Bunker maneja vibraciones, bloques, timbales, bongos y pandereta; la cantante Beverly Ford imita de cerca el sonido del theremin con sus asombrosas frecuencias de alto tono en "Ruby" y "Lover".
