Bob Thompson - The Sound of Style

Just for Kicks (LPS-2027) was Grammy-nominated in 1959 and recorded November of 1958. Bob's wife gave the album its title, along with On the Rocks. Peek-a-boo is a pleasant come-hither strip tease, compete with mallets serving as musical motif for blinking, sexy eyelashes.

The liner notes say it best: "Picture a moonlight swim without the encumbrance of superfluous apparel; an impromptu plane flight to Las Vegas or Miami; a cha cha contest at a lease-breaking party; an all night discussion of philosophy while sobering up on café espresso. These are some of the things which imaginative people do 'just for kicks!
