Murder Inc.

In Who's Who in Space Age Pop Music: "Irving Joseph spent most of his career in the anonymity of the orchestra pit, but space age pop fans know him for a choice piece of crime jazz titled, Murder, Inc. on Bob Shad's Time label. Murder, Inc. sounds a little like outtakes from the Tijuana strip-joint "source music" in Mancini's great score to Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil." In fact, there's enough of a rocking sax combo feel to Murder, Inc. that Shad reissued it a few years later as Surf Party--My Pad by "The Wedges" in an attempt to cash in on the surf music craze. (Time Records soon went under for the third time, however, to resurface as Mainstream)."
