One of the best albums ever recorded by Arthur Lyman – cut shortly after he departed Martin Denny's group, with a very similar exotica style. Lyman's vibes are nice and spooky, ringing out in the echoey setting of the album – which was Henry Kaiser's incredible Aluminum Dome in Honolulu. A great bit of postwar colonial exotica trapped on wax, and brought back to the mainland for folks in suburban LA – and featuring the tracks "Magic Island", "Cubana Chant", "Fire Down Below", "Cumana", "Hana Pele", "Pele", and "Tropical".

GNP, Late 60s. Very Good+
A later album from vibist Arthur Lyman – but still pretty darn nice too! The sound here is a bit sweeter and smoother than Lyman's work in the stark exotica years – with some added vocals on a few tracks, and a real sense of warmth in the production. But the change in approach also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Fi, 1958. Very Good-
Classic exotica from Arthur Lyman – a set that really shows the lessons he learned from Martin Denny – and his willingness to take the genre into some strong new directions! The style here is still very much in the percussive mode you might expect from Denny's generation – but it' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of Arthur Lyman's first LPs –- a brilliant set of percussively grooving tracks, modulated at a low tempo, and recorded in the Henry J.

A great little album of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini – played by a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen! The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic – the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, played by a lineup that includes Bud ... LP, Vinyl record album

Drumsville
Liberty, Early 60s. Good+
Kick-ass, drum-heavy instrumentals from Earl Palmer – the player who made some of David Axelrod's work sound great in the late 60s, but who's hitting even harder here! The style's a mix of rock instrumental and R&B modes – with pounding drums from Palmer on all numbers, and bits of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groovy batch of tracks played by a small combo that includes Phil Bodner, Dick Hyman, and Clark Terry – plus Lois Winter on vocals.
