Nah, you're thinking of Blue VELVET!

My favorite version of Quiet Village is a 10 minute version done by jazz singer Rene Marie. That version is 10 minutes long (it includes a bass solo), and can be found on her CD 'Live at Jazz Standard'

Hey all, I have posted an LP for download in the thread "Exotica LP Available For Download". It is "An Evening at the Royal Tahitian" which was self produced by the RT back in '60 (I think). It features the house band performing a very slow version of "Quiet Village" complete with bird calls.

digiTIKI is formerly known as MRiddle

Re: the many versions of Quiet Village out there, this:
Odell Brown and the Organ-izers, Cadet LPS-788
was mentioned previously in this thread. I picked up a nice copy of it at the local Salvation Army recently. It's called Mellow Yellow -- Odell Brown and the Organ-izers. Song 1 is the title track; Song 2 is Quiet Village. It is done nicely in my opinion. To quote from the album notes:
Les Baxter's exotic classic, Quiet Village, is introduced by Brown and Gibson in a mellow manner. They build to a wailing peak for the horns who come in swinging with the famous theme. Artee Payne and then Tommy Purvis solo; they get ultra-hot in a modern way and build to an exciting climax before the entire group returns to the opening pattern.

Anyone else have this record too? Finding it in such nice condition made me feel "ultra-hot in a modern way."

I can hack "Quiet Village" on the uke and sing the words at the same time. But, that probably won't be anyone's favorite version of the tune......

AMG gets bananas sometimes. My CD is listed as jazz when it is actually haunted house electronic ambient soundscapes. I wrote to them several times but they never fixed it. Sigh.
