The Markko Polo Adventurers - Scheherezade

Highly entertaining, humorous  "exotica" from 1959, arranged by Gerald Fried, who went on to score scores, maybe hundreds of TV show episodes  & movies, including "Star Trek" and "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." What I like about "exotica" is that good parodies of the genre are as highly regarded as the "serious" recordings. Perhaps an argument could be made that they are nearly all parodies.
