George Garvarentz – They Came To Rob Las Vegas (1969)


Fetched this from an unknown blog years ago (now down). Crime jazz record with cool mod rhythms, and at times jamesbondy and austinpowersy sounds. Huge orchestra and many stylistic turns in the arrangement, switching back and forth from cheerful pop to suspense. A detailed analysis in Spanish. An extended version of The Worldless Song can be found on YouTube.
