Review :
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements — in a style that’s incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that’s at once spooky and lovely — a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album’s light years away from other “piano with strings” albums of the time — proof that Schifrin was easily one of the most imaginative forces of his generation, and an arranger who really helped reshape music in the 60s.
