CiJ 2021-Part 13 (In August)

 Another great selection of tunes for you today, so I'm just gonna jump right in.

1. Cuban Christmas by American Percussion Society, Paul Price-Conductor from Breaking The Sound Barrier, Vol. 1-Percussion (Urania UX 106, Mono, 1956). Now this one should be better known!

2. Danse Arabe by Ralph Marterie And His Orchestra from Swing Baby (Mercury MG 20124, Mono, 1955). Just found this record yesterday, if you can believe it. Looks like I shared a version from a 10" 78 last Christmas, via the Internet Archive, but I don't think it's the same version.

3. The Shepherds Song by The Adult Choir Of The Congregational Church Of Manhasset, New York, Ministry Of Music-Robley And Jean Lawson from Sacred Music (No Label, G8-OP-8168/8169, Mono, 1956). This may be the only dud in the bunch today.

4. When The Snow Is On The Roses by Roy Drusky from Jody And The Kid (Mercury SR 61173, Stereo, 1968). Well, OK, this one probably isn't going on your Christmas mix either.

5. The Skater's Waltz by Eric Vaughn-The Medallian Strings And Percussion from Wine, Women And Waltzes-The Sound Of The Blue Danube (Medallion (Kapp) MS-7519, Stereo, 1961). Another stereo spectacular!

In and out, wiki wiki today.  Download and enjoy!

I've always liked Ralph Marterie - nice find!

He's done some good stuff over the years, but seems pretty forgotten today.

Yes, the big band leaders of that era don't get much notice.
