This weeks Sunday lounge listening is “Accent on Bamboo” by Tak Shindo, 1960.

From the back cover: “Tak Shindo is one of Hollywood’s busiest young musicians, with impressive arranging and composing credits in motion pictures and TV, as well as intensive study in and out of college under such outstanding teachers as moviedom’s Miklos Rozza and Dr. Shigeo Kishibe of the University of Tokyo. A Nisei from Los Angeles, Take made good use of his talents in both music and languages during his three-year hitch in the U.S. Army. He was attracted to intelligence as a language instructor, and later served as a musical arranger and producer of GI shows for special services.”
