Les Baxter - Que Mango (1970)



Well, well, who thought of that? Four votes ahead of Esquivel´s classic album, but the choice was yours... This is a late album by Les Baxter, from the year 1970, so it might be unfamiliar to many listeners, since I´ve read some reviews in which people are disappointed with this work. Not me, I´ll tell you! This is the perfect example of the so-called "Jet-Set-Music". When you listen to this, you are boarding a jet and you lift off to see the world. This is his second album with the fabulous "101 Strings". Highlights are "Tropicando" and the "Flight in the Andes". They show again the outstanding talents of Les Baxter as a composer, orchestrator and conductor. But hear for yourself and judge.

@ anonym: Yes, I could, but then this site would be titled "Pinicchio´s Les Baxter corner". I like to have a variety of records on my page, but if you are patient, Les Baxter will show up from time to time... I hope, that you´ll enjoy the rest of the music too.

Don't laugh, I don't know German.

Well, I don´t know. Maybe there´s a problem with rapidshare...

It only means the id3 tags are set to neuer kunstler. If you either edit or remove the tags, you'll be a ok.

even otherwise it is a-ok. just only the display in eg winamp will display the wrong title, it will play ok.

Cool! I have another record with the exact same photo of the exact same girl on the cover. A great record by the way, "Los Nortes Americanos go British". The Beatles in Tijuana style.
