Robert Drasnin - Voodoo (1960)


In 1960 the Tops Record Company (always quick to cash in on the latest trend) released an Exotica record by Robert Drasnin entitled "Voodoo." Little did anyone suspect that Robert Drasnin’s first and only album would soon become one of the most sought after and coveted of all Exotica records. In 1996 the album saw a CD release on Dionysus "Lost Episode" label then later that year on Pickwick. Then in 1999 nearly 40 years later with the help of Skip Heller, Duane Schulthess and the Minnesota Contemporary Ensemble, Robert Drasnin conducted and played the first ever live debut of "Voodoo" in its entirety!
