The Surf Symphony – The Song Of Summer

Someone around ’69 had a brilliant idea. He said: “We ‘re in California. Here, we all listen to surf music. So if I make a symphonic album based on that it ‘ll be a major hit. Won’t it?”.

The above statement is just my assumption because The Surf Symphony – The Song Of Summer is indeed a brilliantly made record. It features some of the finest session musicians of the LA scene (including one of my personal favourites, drummer Jim Gordon) and the performances in it are super smooth.
