Arthur Lyman - Taboo

Here's a nice exotica album from Arthur Lyman. Besides Lyman's great vibe playing, it also features great piano and percussion. But it's the use of sound effects in almost every track that really amps up the atmosphere of the music. The venue where the album was recorded, the Aluminum Dome in Waikiki, also helps lend an atmospheric weight to the music. The front cover is also a great one.

Side 1:
01 - Taboo
02 - Kalua
03 - Ringo Oiwake
04 - Sea Breeze
05 - Misirlou
06 - China Clipper

Side 2:
07 - Sim Sim
08 - Katsumi Love Theme
09 - Caravan
10 - Akaka Falls
11 - Dahil Sayo
12 - Hilo March

Edit: This one's on CD and though a lot of links went dead during my hiatus, this one was pulled. So I won't be putting it up again... I will take personal requests however.

I just bought a new copy of Taboo & it seems they are verry easy to get. Please don't make illegal copies because it robs Arthur Lyman's family.
