This entry was inspired by a reader’s tweet in response to last week’s Dave Brubeck cover:
That Brubeck cover is classic. This is pretty good, too. It's late '50s electronic music (incredible, by the way), commissioned by Philips Sound Labs in Denmark to show the beauty of technology and asauge fear of it in the atomic age. (I have the Argentinian pressing). pic.twitter.com/djmwgoUDzc

Kid Baltan and Tom Dissevelt were respected Dutch jazz musicians who were commissioned to record this 1959 album with a great cover and a clunky title.
Here’s the whole damn album. It may have you dancing like Dieter on Sprockets. Warning: Never touch his monkey.
