THE ALL STAR ORCHESTRA - A FAR EAST FANTASY IN LATIN DANCE RHYTHM


Posted this one a while ago but that link was swiftly taken down by mediafire, got a much, much better copy of this fantastic album now....

Record producer George Ching began bringing Japanese bands to Hawaii after World War II when it was again acceptable for Japanese-Americans here to publicly reaffirm their ties to Japan. He released this imaginative album, originally titled "A Far East Fantasy In Latin Dance Rhythm," on his 49th State Hawaii label sometime in the late 1950s. The songs had been popular in the pre-1945 Japanese Empire or in areas occupied by Japanese forces during World War II. The arrangements reflected the Latin dance craze back then.... Great album!
