Xavier CugatCugi's Cocktails ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1963. Used ... $13.99
Cugat and cocktails – what could be better? The set's a bit later than Xavier Cugat's classic vintage – but in a really nice way, one that has him opening up with some groovy 60s rhythms! The style is still heavily Latin, but there's also some nice influences from bossa nova and some of the dance trends that were creeping into the dancefloors of the time – and arranger Hal Mooney gives the whole thing a playful kind of approach that's still as rhythmic and percussive as Cugat's other albums, but which also uses the horn charts to carve some nice colors over the top! Titles include the excellent original "Cugi's Cocktail" – a great slow-groover with a soul jazz finish – plus "Manhattan", "Zombie", "Singapore", "Daiquiri", "Old Fashioned", and "Cuba Libre". CD
(Out of print, 2005 digipack pressing. Cover has a bit of marker in one corner, but mostly blends into the dark background.)

VariousReturn To Paradise – A History Of Exotica ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. Used ... $18.99
An excellent summation of the exotica sound of the 50s – that wonderful period when mood music started getting really interesting – thanks to an infusion of island-inspired sounds in the postwar years! The music here represents the pinnacle of 50s exotica – amazing records by some of the bigger names in the genre, mixed with some lesser-known gems that make the collection way more interesting than some of the more easily-done exotica sets on the market. There's plenty of weird rhythms, odd percussion, unusual sounds, and dreamy melodies – and titles include "Chant Of The Moon" by Robert Drasnin, "Lotus Land" by Gene Rains, "Summer Storm" by John McFarland, "Paradise" by Paul Conrad, "Kashmiri Love Song" by Korla Pandit, "Coronation" by Martin Denny, "Mwanza Market Place" by Tak Shindo, "Mountain High Valley Low" by The Markko Polo Adventurers, "Strange Echoes" by Frank Hunter, and "Jungle Flute" by Xavier Cugat.
