This stands up to any Martin Denny album as an example of exotica in full flight, decorated with lots of bird noises and soft vibraphone. The songs do tend to melt into each other without much in the way of striking differences, and it's not likely it would be played often except by those who can't get enough See more details below

Overview

This stands up to any Martin Denny album as an example of exotica in full flight, decorated with lots of bird noises and soft vibraphone. The songs do tend to melt into each other without much in the way of striking differences, and it's not likely it would be played often except by those who can't get enough Arthur Lyman in the house. "Jungle Fantasy," though, is notable as an example of exotica at its most frenetic, with exuberant birdcalls from the band and a fast tempo that has more in common with rhumbas than Hawaiian music. The CD reissue restores the original sleeve, whose distorted tikified heads were considered "too gruesome" upon its initial release.
