Latitude 20 map reading for the big island of Hawaii – a fitting title for the set, given Lyman's frequent work on the isle – home to, and inspiration for his countless great exotica recordings over the years! The sound here is still nicely free from any attempts to change or commercialize Lyman's music – and like previous albums, this one's all in a small combo mode that's heavy on percussion, and built up with plenty of vibes and marimba from Arthur. Titles include "The Day The Fish Came Out", "Island In The Sun", "Our Song", "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen", "Alfie", and even a version of "Ode To Billie Joe" with a nice little groove!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
