Les Baxter had joined Mel Tormé’s Mel-Tones at the age of 23, the arranged and composed for swing bands in the 1940s, among luminaries such as Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra.

In the 1960s, he formed the Balladeers, a conservative folk group with a young David Crosby. He worked in radio as musical director of the Bob Hope and Abbott and Costello shows.

Baxter worked in films in the 1960s and 1970s such as scores for Roger Corman’s films and beach party films including Muscle Beach Party and Beach Blanket Bingo.

He made classic exotica records, Ritual of the Savage and Tamboo!, (go cat go, crazy swing daddy!) were hit successes, so Capitol Records went on a limb and used him to get teen record money and Les Baxter’s Teen Drums was made.

And it’s cool music:

A follow-up to the popular Skins! of 1957, Les Baxter’s Teen Drums was a return to pure beat territory. “Ting Ting Ting” and “Brazil Nuts” start the album off with furious bongo bashing busy rhythms, but then slow to a more sedate pace as Teen Drums delivers its skeletal arrangements and tightly restrained beats.

Les Baxter’s Teen Drums is exotica of sorts, perfect for the average space-age bachelor’s cocktail party.

Les Baxter recorded these swinging tracks with various Pacific Coast drum stars, jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Porto-Rican skin-thumpers. No music was written. They all simply sat down in a studio on Hollywood’s Vine Street and started pounding.

oh yeah, the hot rod… Norm Grabowski’s of course, later to be “My Mother The Car”. Well, Les had dabbled in acting, “College Capers” with Norm and Mamie Van Doren. That’s probably why Norm’s car is on the cover of this album

George Barris claimed to have built the car because Norm Grabowski sold the car to a prop man Kaye Trapp who along with father of Craig Breedlove, Norm Breedlove, was a special effects guy who modified the car for the show.
