Overview

Martin Denny is rightfully known as the king of exotica/lounge music. The music is defined by breezy, middle of the road, early-60's pop arrangements buttressed by sound effects of ocean, wildlife, birds, and other natural phenomenon. Scamp Records out of New York has done an excellent job of reissuing his original albums, and this CD, which contains two albums on one disc, is one of the best of the lot. The first album, Quiet Village, has a distinct Hawaiian air, with songs like "Hawaiian War Chant," "Pagan Love Song," "Paradise Found," and others. It's a gorgeous mood album, wonderfully recorded and produced (by Simon Waronker). The second set, The Enchanted Sea, is equally exotic, using the ocean as a motif. The packaging is excellent, with extensive liner notes by Denny himself. With lounge music enjoying a resurgence in the past years, this disc is quite obviously the place to start.
