HASH(0x9c340984) out of 5 stars Jungle Fun 23 Nov. 2005
By Henderson James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
More soothing renditions by Morton Gould and composer Ernesto Lecuona. "Andalucia" is simply beautiful on this album. It has a strong melody that would sound good in almost any setting. My daughter brought this in for her second grade class, and most of the kids an parents liked the music. Some of it is very cinematic, and I think that's what some of them reacted too...made then think of old films. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9c08a360) out of 5 stars interesting change of pace 5 Nov. 2003
By COMPUTERJAZZMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had originally purchased this CD because I thought the music was similar to Les Baxter, Martin Denny, and Arthur Lyman (I made this assumption based on the picture on the jacket). I thought it was another "exotica" album. Boy, was I wrong! While the arrangements all have lush melodies, the music is symphonic in nature and have great orchestral arrangements. I like this CD a lot.

HASH(0x9fecb168) out of 5 stars Sentimental Favorite 30 Nov. 2006
By H. Ransdell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My parents purchased this album back in the sixties, and I grew up listening to it. For this reason alone I love it. Even after all this time I still love these arrangements. Mr. Gould's orchestra give polished performances, the tone colors are varied and vivid. You will be carried to exotic locales by this music. It's a classic!

HASH(0x9c08a768) out of 5 stars Rich and luminous 21 April 2008
By David Saemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Don't let the Jungle Drums title mislead you. This is mainly a collection of lush, lyrical music. It was recorded to two-track tape in 1955 in RCA's prime location of Webster Hall, and the sound generally is excellent. Half the album is given over to Ernesto Lecuona's music, and very engrossing it is. The arrangement of Malaguena put me in mind of Percy Faith's arrangement of the same song--both are full bodied and excellent. The two classical standards on the album by Falla and Villa-Lobos are beautifully done. I can't say enough about the orchestral playing. I once read an interview with a player who said that Morton Gould was the only conductor he played for who didn't have any charisma, but you would never know it from this recording. This album is definitely a keeper.

HASH(0x9bead300) out of 5 stars A Classic 15 Jan. 2009
By Christopher Bonds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was in high school when I bought this LP, and it was one of the favorites in my collection! I thought enough of it to buy the CD reissue. As one reviewer said, the jacket might make you think it is "lounge" music but it is in fact a beautifully performed set of orchestral arrangements of evocative works by Lecuona, Villa-Lobos, and others. Gould was one of the most important American musicians of the 20th century. He brilliantly composed, conducted, and arranged music for orchestra and many other genres. While it's tempting to think of him as a "lightweight" compared to other American composers, in my opinion that would be a serious mistake. He knew his strengths and honed them to perfection.
