Prima Orchestra Di Roma - Italian Percussion

This rare Euro-lounge gem from the Australian World Record International company is a great example of the continental approach to big-band pops. Maracas, guitars, marimbas accordions and bongos join with the brass, reeds and woodwinds of the big-band ensemble to create a vibrant infectious album of groovy lounge tunes.

The constant changes of orchestration and stop-time bongo and timpani sections remind me of Esquival, and the twinkling marimbas and honking baritone sax riffs are classic lounge fare. A must have.

So get down and do the Mambo Raviolli.
