So I've fallen in love with Nelson Riddle's Sea of Dreams and Les Baxter's Jewels of the Sea... Wonderful, romantic, lush albums evoking the floating sensations of the blue tropical deep (and both featuring marine pin-up goddess Dianne Webber on their covers). They're the perfect soundtrack to my mermaid kick... But I want more... Does anyone have suggestions for other albums like those two, which capture the same sound and mood?

Thanks!

I hadn’t heard either of these albums, so I searched the web and discovered that Björn at AmbientExotica reviewed both and also mentions Love Tide by Nelson Riddle. You might check out that one:

Since you’re also a Disney fan, you might already know about this one: Another lush album (though not “ocean-centric” like the two you mention) is George Bruns’ Moonlight Time in Old Hawaii.

And perhaps you might consider Jackie Gleason, whose music was incredibly plush. While the songs are all Great American Songbook standards, his The Torch with the Blue Flame LP is smooth and chock full of vibes and marimbas.

Leo Diamond's "Skin Diver Suite" and Martin Denny's "Enchanted Sea" go well with the above.

NOT TIKI, but this stuff is cool and moody.

Thanks for the leads everyone!

And oh yes, I've already got my (digital) copy of Moonlight Time in Old Hawaii! I think it's mandatory for Disney-slash-Tiki fans
