Mondo Cane #2 – The Worst Jazz Album Creed Produced?

Pop goes the ondioline – A really quite unusual production by Creed Taylor, but was it jazz? Kai Winding’s “Mondo Cane #2” despite consisting of 12 short tracks diverges into space-era pop with Hawaiian themes, not pure jazz. Winding plays the ondioline on several tracks, attempting to capitalize on earlier success. A long form read and review where I suggest that despite its name, the album wasn’t intended to be a jazz classic and Winding didn’t play the ondioline, unless you know better!
