About this item

Recorded in 1958, Dave Harris's only release as a band leader was a magnificent tribute to Raymond Scott, the legendary forerunner of space sound and author of many classics referenced by jazz to pop/rock musicians and engraved in millions of minds through their use in countless cartoons and movies during the years. Harris was a highly considered studio musician and played tenor sax in Scott's legendary Quintette during the late 1930s.

All through the 12 themes that compose the album, Dave Harris and the Powerhouse Five make the listener part of a joyful trip in which Scott's "portraits in music" come back to life filled with a new manic energy, a playful spirit and an undeniable love for Scott's repertoire. Long out of print it was about time for this space-age-gem and its amazing cover art to be released again.

Ltd to 300 copies.
