“Batman Theme”: Mod + Brass

Les & Larry Elgart get the mod brass thing happening in their take on the Neil Hefti classic:

Batman Theme – Les & Larry Elgart

[Pssst:  Click the triangle to play “Batman Theme” as interpreted by The Brothers Elgart.]

“Batman Theme” closes side one of 1966 Columbia album, Sound of the Times.

Elgart LP

Album review from the July 9, 1966 edition of Billboard:

“Les & Larry Elgart are right in the groove with some swinging contemporary dance music.  There’s “Michelle,” “Taste of Honey,” “Batman’s Theme” and more in the go-go vein.  It’s fine for the youngsters, and the Elgart name will help with the adults who want to cavort like youngsters.”
