The Whispering Sea

In 1957, when he was known mainly for honest B movie hackwork at Universal, Henry Mancini produced this  collection of minimalist exotica using only guitars, organ, accordion, some percussion instruments, & a couple of vocalists, his first solo LP. A year later he chanced into the Peter Gunn TV show. I must have passed over dozens of this LP at flea markets while searching for rare Mancini soundtracks. It's a charming record.
