AllMusic Review by

Voices in Rhythm is not the reissue to begin an appreciation of composer, pianist, and bandleader Les Baxter. His unique and sometimes bizarre approach to easy listening music is absent on this session, originally recorded for Reprise Records in 1962. This straight reissue features 12 tracks, mainly standards, including "September in the Rain," "Pennies From Heaven," and "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)." Those expecting anything like the exploratory Space Escapade or Ritual of the Savage should stick with Baxter's Capitol recordings. ~ Al Campbell
