This one is from a compilation of Romanian jazz, from a band called Orchestra Universtatii Jazz Din Illinois. Wait, what? The University of Illinois Jazz Band? On a Romanian Jazz conpilation? It turns out that the back in the day they were the best collegiate band in all the land, and did play in Europe in the late sixties. How Romania lays claim to them is anybody's guess. But it's sufficiently nuts. Dig the illustration above from one of their album covers. That's what sold me.
