Les Baxter - Confetti (1958)

Les Baxter´s "Confetti" from the year 1958 features All-European tunes, I guess that´s why it was quite unpopular in the U.S. I´ve read some harsh critics on that, but I don´t think they are right. But hear for yourself, I will not lead you to a prejudice. But I bet You won´t get the first tune out of your head for weeks: "Ricordate Marcellino" (in English: "Remember Marcellino") is a tribute to Muzzy Marcellino, one of the greatest whistlers of all time. There are some other whistling tunes on it, some lush arrangements, and everything sounds quite continental, if I may say. So, please enjoy this forgotten gem.

Thanks, Pinicchio, for this wonderful album which has some really great Baxter music. Just wish it was the stereo version but it's ever more rare. Great work you are doing.

rapidshare files are hosted until no one downloads the file for 30 days. if anyone has any of the old links, they should work. i am interested as well for anything that has been removed.

thanks for uploading the music! quality stuff all around.

rick, check out the rato records blog as well. i grabbed 4-5 GB from there recently, so most of the links should be fresh.
