Two late '50s albums of Pandit going it alone on the pipe organ (Music of the Exotic East and Latin Holiday) are combined onto one disc on this CD reissue. It's not necessarily the cream of his many recordings, but you're looking for vintage Pandit in the digital format, it's the one that's most readily available. ~ Richie Unterberger
