Man, check out that groovy Parisian Brenot pin-up on the cover!

If you are seeking formative influences in Lalo Schifrin's work, then this splendid album, lovingly restored from the Paris sessions of the 1950's featuring Eddie Warner's Orchestra for whom he arranged, conducted and played piano, will do the trick. 

An amazing breath of fresh air!  Unmistakably "Lalo"! What was then called cha-cha-cha and mambo, and what we today call salsa, this hugely enjoyable album features several original compositions by Schifrin as well as by his mentor Dizzy Gillespie. 

His biographer, Georges Michel has written exclusive notes for us for this terrific album! 

Notes in English and French. The pinup cover image is by arrangement with Martine Brenot and Benjamin Benetti.
