by Bob James
Released: May 1965
Known for his contributions to smooth jazz, Bob James was also a trailblazer in experimental music. This 1965 album combines far-out and mainstream post bop piano jazz with electronics and studio trickery. Although often unsettling -- this kind of music would soon find its way into horror and suspense films -- freak-outs such as "Wolfman" are also a lot of fun.
