Oriental Variations on a Christmas Theme

  3. funky ear wax , hope you enjoyed the track , sorry but i dont really post full albums here , to many "ungrates"
    leave your email

  4. I have a wonky cassette recording off my Dad's old vinyl of this - one of the greatest thing in his collection. It is an awesome album, and quite unusual for its day by combining Indian instrumentation with a hard bop backing group. Also wonderful and uncommon is to hear flugelhorn solos.

    This album was very inspiring to me when 23 years ago I was in a jazz combo - we covered 'God Rest Ye Merry Jazzmen' (itself a traditional Xmas carol rework), which lends itself beautifully to the bop form.

    Would love to hear the rest in full too, if anyone can post or send me a link.

  5. I d love to hear the rest too pls
