Gary McFarland - Fried Bananas (from The In Sound, Verve, 1965)
At first it may seem easy, even lazy, but the strength of this is that with all its softness and its (false) laziness it catches you and never let you go. It is built with science from the best elements of Jazz, Latin, Pop music to get the lightest possible song. To reach such a perfect result, it has to be played by the best musicians around, McFarland (composer) on vibes and humming, Gabor Szabo and Kenny Burrell on guitars, Candido on bongo and congas, Sadao Watanabe on flute and tenor sax, to tell a few. If you need a bit of skilled lightness in your life, Gary McFarland’s In sound should be your choice. And the cover, "Fried Egg On A Polka Dot Tablecloth" by pop artist Peter Shulman is really cool.
