Reissued for the first time and in stereo! Trombonist and conductor Frank Hunter's “White Goddess” from 1959 is one of the most fascinating and captivating Exotica records ever released during the pinnacle phase of the genre. Next to this it is also one of the rarest in its original form so this reissue has been overdue. As the genre defining piece of music it is “White goddess” stands miles above the average pathetic Exotica sounds with a rather haunting and mystical atmosphere that projects pictures of the dark side of the jungle into your mind. Wordless female chants, multiple layers of grooves, rich and colorful melodies plus a lush instrumentation with even such rare instruments as the ondioline electric piano, a hybrid between theremin and shawm, are responsible for the imaginative approach of the music you experience when you give a spin to “White goddess”. Feel your mind being stained with colors yet unseen even by your inner eye. This is indeed an unearthly trippy yet utterly relaxed musical journey. Be welcome to join.
