His seventh album "Arthur Lyman on Broadway" from 1959 isn't here) During Lyman's heyday he had three songs on the pop chart, the first two are here & their B-sides. 1. Taboo ~ B/W ~ Dahil Sayo 2. Yellow Bird ~ B/W ~ Havah Nagilah The third song "Love For Sale" from 1963 isn't here, as it didn't fall with-in the time period this set covers. Disc Four ~ Lyman's eighth & ninth albums "Taboo 2" - 1959 - ( excellent, classic Taboo) "Percussion Spectacular" - 1960 - (many nice songs) Re-issued as "Yellow Bird".

Arthur Lyman - Listen to Arthur Lyman on Deezer. The term exotica was used first as the title of a 1957 album by Denny and his combo with Lyman on vibraphone. Lyman left the group soon after to form his own group with Alan Soares on piano, John Kramer on bass and flute and Harold Chang on drums. Their debut album, 'Leis of Jazz' came out the same year. With the release in 1958 of the album 'Taboo: The Exotic Sounds of Arthur Lyman' with the same sidemen, Lyman claimed a place alongside Denny in the realm of exotic jazz.
