Comments

There is another variation of MG-36115, which has the same jacket artwork as Mercury MG-20551 (mono) and SR-60119 (stereo).

Inside The Groove

A companion album of MG-36082: Pete Rugolo's energic and experimental big-band sound, backed up with many famous ex-Kenton pals.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Pete Rugolo, former Kenton-band chief arranger, here tries to arrange and conduct very experimental big-band sound, as we can also hear in his Columbia years.

Assorted musicans include vary famous and talented west-coast guys including Maynard Ferguson, Frank Rosolino, Russ Freeman, Shelly Manne and many many more. A great sound.

The rest of the recordings from the same session was appeared on MG-36082 “Music For Hi-Fi Bugs”. And Stereo version can be heard on SR-60118 “Music From Out Of Space” and SR-60119 “Rhythm Meets Rugolo”.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
