I'm widening my musical knowledge thanks to TC. I heard a really nice exotica piece by Tak Shindo on a podcast recently and thought I was time to get to know him better.

What Tak albums can you recommend as a starter.

Tks

I suspect that you heard "Bali Hai" on the podcast. I have "Mganga"
and I think it's very cool. Worth tracking down but I'm not sure where
you would find any of his stuff.

There are a couple of items on iTunes (including Bali Hai), which is actually on an Ultra Lounge album.

I'll talk to my daughter about the iTunes thingy, and I'll have another look at my Ultra Lounge stuff.

No seminal re-issues by this guy then?

Thanks again

No reissues that I am aware of. Tak Shindo could definitely use a compilation CD.

Here is some info from a previous thread..............

Mganga! was reissued on CD together with Les Baxter's African Jazz. There's a copy on eBay right now.

However, I understand that this CD is a bootleg and that the sound quality is none too good, i.e. it sounds like an amateurish vinyl rip, so I can't really recommend it.

This is a definite bootleg. I have not heard it so I am not sure what the sound quality is like. You're better off looking for the vinyl. Both of those albums pop up pretty frequently.

I do like the Betty Page picture though!!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff
