I think I got his name right but not sure.  Guess I should've checked in the record stacks first, huh?  Anywho, he put out a two disc set called the "Big Box" in the mid 70s that had a killer version of "Night on Bald Mountain" with Billy Cobham on drums and a sweet cover of Joni Mitchell's "Song for a Seagull" with Paul Desmond on saxophone.  I think he was an in-demand arranger and keyboard wiz in that era and I think I might even have another of his albums stuck in my vinyl stash, too.  Anybody know of this guy?  I think he'd be a good fit here.

Yeah, he's one of those classic thrift store finds. The record I had(have?) was equal parts 3rd Stream, exotica and easy listening, just the sort of thing I would hope to find in a thrift store.
I'm thinking he would make a good fit for our 3rd Stream genre. Possibly some of his records may belong in Progressive Big Band and/or Exotica as well. Any records that are all easy-listening would go in Pop-Jazz/Crossover.
