One of the rarest Les Baxter albums – and one of the best! The theme is undersea exotic – and Les uses a swirling mix of strings, piano, organ, flute, and electronics to create a haunting sound that makes you feel like you've discovered some hidden grotto under the sea, filled with jewels and other treasures you could only imagine in dreams. The scoring is similar to some of Les' other great work on Capitol – but the dreaminess of the instruments gives the record a whole different sound, without getting as snoozy as some of his easy pop work. Titles include "Dancing Diamonds", "Enchanted Sea", "Sunken City", "Stars In The Sand", "Sea Nymph", and "Dolphin". CD also features 13 more tracks – from The Sacred Idol, Ports Of Pleasure, and Tamboo – titles that include "City Of Veils", "Pool Of Love", "High Priest Of The Aztecs", "Procession Of The Princes", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", and "Batumba".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
