Leslie Thompson Baxter (March 14, 1922 – January 15, 1996) was an American musician and composer. After working as an arranger and composer for swing bands, he developed his own style of easy listening music, known as exotica. Baxter studied piano at the Detroit Conservatory before moving to Los Angeles for further studies at Pepperdine College.
No music was written. They all simply sat down in a studio on Hollywood's Vine Street and started pounding. A follow-up to the popular Skins! of 1957, Les Baxter's Teen Drums marks a return to pure beat territory. Ting Ting Ting" and "Brazil Nuts" start the album off with furious bongo bashing busy rhythms, but then things slow to a more sedate pace as Teen Drums delivers its skeletal arrangements and tightly restrained beats. I dig swings along nicely but my pick is Calypso. Les Baxter's Teen Drums is exotica of sorts, perfect for the average space-age bachelor's cocktail party or simply load the surf boards . .
