Jim Waller and the Deltas - Surfin' Wild c/w Church Keydotdotdot
artworkJim Waller and the Deltas were from Fresno, California. They were miles from the surf physically, and their sound was much more about the west coast jazz club combo sound than surf. This single was from their Surfin' Wild album.
Picks: Surfin' Wild, Church Key

Track by Track Review


Surfin' Wild dotdotdot
Jazz Surf (Instrumental)

This was a single for the Deltas. It is very Hammond oriented, and quite a melodic jazz combo number.

Church Key dotdotdotdot
Jazz Surf (Instrumental)

Relatively straight surf arrangement for Waller's band, this cover of an early Central Coast standard from the Revels is solid and very cool.
