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.
