There's a Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On is an album by Argentine composer, pianist and conductor Lalo Schifrin recorded in 1968 and released on the Dot label.[1][2][3]

The title is a reference to the 1957 Jerry Lee Lewis song, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, and was devised by Gary Owens.[4]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review states "This album was ahead of its time in terms of instrumentation, but was a product of its time in that established ways of doing things were being challenged. Fans of Lalo Schifrin's work will find this to rank with his best, and those not familiar with anything but the Mission Impossible theme will be drawn in further by the eccentric genius displayed here".[5]
