Halloween Music: Poe for Moderns

In 1960, Buddy Morrow and His Orchestra, a jazz ensemble, decided to bring some classic American literature to life.

It's certainly swingin', and except for the recitation of some of the poems over themusic, yo might not guess that these charts were "inspired" by E A Poe.

You can check out the whole thing yourself, complete with CD case front & back, and a 4-fold insert that contains the back of the LP.

I LOVE "THE RAVEN" and you will too!

Here's the link:

See you Friday with another vacation stop!
