Collection: Al Hazan Volume 1, The Sixtiesdotdotdot
artworkPerhaps among the least known of all the producers, writers and artists of the fifties and sixties is Al Hazan. He penned and recorded many instro hits, wrote some textbook surf, and recorded as, among others, B. Bumble and the Stingers. Volume one of his works features two instros.
Picks: Ali Hassan - Chopsticks, Crazy Luke - Karate

Track by Track Review

Ali Hassan - Chopsticks dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Yup, it's that composition! Euphemia Allen aka Arthur de Lull wrote this in 1877, and it's been a piano staple ever since. This version features cool drums and pumping piano.

Crazy Luke - Karate dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Al Hazan cut a series of singles more or less in the B. Bumble & The Stingers mold, among which was this ripping Hazan composition "Karate." great piano romping and rock'n'roll drums. Lots of energy and fun!
