Originally released in the summer of 1959, this remarkable album was one of the first to fuse Middle Eastern and Western instrumentation. Led by Armenian-American oud virtuoso Charles "Chick" Ganimian, the band tear through a collection of standards and originals that touch on what they termed "Oriental rock'n'roll," anticipating the work of John Berberian, The Orient Express, The Devil's Anvil, and others. Includes background notes.
