I ordered and received this gem; Eumir Deodato's first album "Lounge '64". This kind of stuff has always been straight up my alley: Lush strings, smooth trombones, flutes and bongos. Made for the urban bachelor pad.....a great bunch of Mancini covers!

Well, at least Herb Alpert is a logical descendent of the lounge/exotica style.....Julius Wechter (a member of the Tijuana brass), the marimba/vibe player who also formed the Baja marimba band, also was one of the last mallet players for Martin Denny, (if I am recalling that correctly), and the same people (adults over 30) who 10 years before would have been listening to les baxter, Denny and lyman would have beeen able to find solace in the Tijuana Brass and Baja marimba (and Sergio mendes) once rock music/youth culture started taking over the public consciousness.

The island reggae, nope. I am not being negative, just pointing out that island reggae has nothing to do with the mid century poly-pop aesthetic. Here come the flamers.....1,2,3......and GO!!!!

Out of the following :

"Exotica, Lounge, Cocktail, Hawaiian, Vocals & Standards, Bump & Grind, Space-Age, Surf, Rockabilly, Swing and Tiki band discussion"

Esquivel hits about 6 of those styles, so yeah.

Bump. We’re really good at updating the “What Are You Drinking” thread; I wonder if can we revive this one.

I’m really enjoying
Phil Moore’s “Polynesian Paradise” album as I do a few boring chores (like balancing my checkbook, if anyone remembers what that is).

I'm playing right now "Jungle Rock" by Hank Mizell 7". Nice raw rock n roll (may I say rockabilly?) recorded in 1958. Didn't get any "media" recommencement untill the 70s. "Anyways here a funny note from Wikipedia: Charly Records (UK) then re-released "Jungle Rock" in March 1976 and it duly made Number 3 in the UK Singles Chart, and Number 1 in the Dutch charts. Mizell was 53 years old when he finally made it into pop's history books. When the record was played on BBC TV's flagship pop music show Top of the Pops in April 1976, host Tony Blackburn announced they could not find Mizell, and so the dance group Pan's People dressed in khaki blouses, shorts and pith helmets, danced along to the record with several extras in animal costumes representing the animals mentioned in the song"

Hier is the link to that top of the pops:

I’m listening to the new reissue (I think?) of Mulatu Astatke’s Afro Latin Soul Vols. 1&2. It grooves so hard





I just searched the forum for Mulatu and there were ZERO results. Maybe I searched incorrectly? I mean it leans a little more to the lounge side than exotica sometimes but there are bird calls and frog noises in some of these jams. I figured I was going to be the last to know amongst the Tikiphiles.

Fran that TOTP is priceless! I’d only ever heard the Replacements version of the song but man the original is great.
