Provocative Percussion (Vol 1) by Terry Snyder and the All Stars [1959]

“A flight into new areas of sonic and musical experience.”

This weeks Sunday Lounge Listening is “Provocative Percussion” by Terry Snyder and the All Stars (aka the Command All-Stars) from 1959. The cover art was by Josef Albers.

“The purpose of this record, aside form the musical and sonic excitement it offers, is to enable you to balance your stereo equipment acoustically rather than mechanically (that is, so that the furnishings in the room, the locations of your speakers and any other condition in that particular room are taken into consideration), to help you to adjust your system so that the musical sounds have the same quality in both high and low frequencies and to reduce distortion to the barest practical minimum.”
