Any fans of lounge music here?
I've been on a lounge music kick for the past two years.
It all started with a Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 8track I got in a collection with my car when I bought it. I think it's awesome. I like the mellow care free sound of 1960 & 1970s lounge music.
Sometimes I feel that our world would be a much more peaceful place if more people sat back, have a martini and relax to sounds of Dick Hyman doing The Girl From Impanema with his organ or Herb Alpert doing Miss Frenchy Brown.  Smile




Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass has some great classics!  Smokin cool



Places that play lounge music tend to be very laid back and a cool place to have a cocktail and good conversations.



I like the friendly unpretentious atmosphere of lunges vs. an uptight modern trend establishment.






Gino Vannelli is one of the most under-rated musciians/songwritters of our time. He is know more for his pop stuff more than his compositions. Thats the record company's fault.  Sad









747-451, I had to throw this one in.  Smile

Oh my gosh, I didn't realize how that could have a double meaning until now. Embarrassment  Big grin

Seriously, Dick Hyman does a great job on The Girl From Impanema.


Andreas:
I will check those guys out.  Smokin cool


Mx5_boy:
I never thought of Chicago as being lounge music. Althought there album 'VII' (1974) has some tunes that could fit in a lounge setting. The songs 'Call On Me', 'Prelude', 'Aire' & 'Devils Suite' definatly has a lounge feel to it.

Tbar220, now that is classic! And all I picked up on was Dick Hyman! LOL  Big thumbs up

Superfly, I love lounge music but really didn't know any names or songs. But I thank you for the list you've given b/c now I can look into them.

But I love hitting lounges and relaxing in Manhattan.

We should have a martini meet up in NYC at the Idlewild bar sometime!

Listen to that, have a lovely mojito if it's hot outside or a whisky sour if it's cold outside, put up your legs and have your feet massaged by the girl from "Nu de lune"  Love  Love (another supercool lounge sampler from France), or whatever you want to have a massaged, and you're in heaven!
Peace!
Andreas

btw: some good ones from the US besides Herb Alpert:
Claus Ogermann, great boxset, 4 CDs, just great, much better than the last Diana Krall album where he did his lovely string arrangements.
Henry Mancini, well not exactly lounge, but try it you'll love it!

Some of Henry Mancini's stuff is great. I have 'Mancini's Angels' (1977) on 8track.




I think Herb Alpert is Brazilian but I could be wrong.

8-track... Big grin Big grin Big grin my uncle, who lives in the city of brotherly love, still has those, too!
If you like Mancini then you NEED Ogermann, you'll be amazed, and of course, never to be forgotten Burt Bacharach...if I listen to Dionne Warwick asking for the way to San Jose, the sun comes up...and stays up! And at the end of the evening, maybe a little bit Bert Kaempfert...
btw: both Ogermann and Bacharach are of German origin, which makes me a little bit proud...*ggg*

as for Herb Alpert, that's what I found on the www:

Born March 31, 1935, Los Angeles, California.
Alpert grew up in L.A. and joined the U.S. Army after high school. He ended up in an Army band, and used his G.I. benefits to attend the University of Southern California after he got out. He soon dropped out of college, though, and knocked around until he got a job with Keen Records, whose leading star was early soul great Sam Cooke. While working at Keen, Alpert wrote "Wonderful World" for Cooke, and it became one of Cooke's all-time hits. Alpert also dabbled in acting during this time, and even got a bit part in The Ten Commandments. .....and so!

Yes, I'm very partial to lounge music (and thus far, I have not found anyone else my age who is). It seems to me a lot of people have forgotten that music can actually be relaxing. I like Brazilian or Brazillian-flavored music in particular. Sergio Mendes and Herb Alpert are definitely favorites, and thanks to my mom, I do have a copy of that particularly "delectable" album.

Yeah baby yeah! I've got stacks of the stuff on vinyl, real old 50s LPs with names like Music For The Cocktail Hour, no hint of post modern irony, this is the real shit. My favourite artist of the genre (I think he just about qualifies) is Jose Feliciano. What an gift of a voice.

I met Henry Mancini once. A true gent and a great man.

If a woman such as appears on the LP cover of "Whipped Cream and other Delights" were looking at me, I'd even listen to rap (shudder) music. Maybe even InSync.

How much whipped cream can a man eat anyway? Forget eating the whipped cream, bury me in it so I can get to what I really want.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Awww, Fly-

You ring my bells so often, I just have to figure we're related somewhere back there! If I could just get you straightened out on that whole political thing (of course, you and my mom are politicaly aligned).

Lounge music, many current compilations, great fun. I love 'em.

Planning on recording some great collections onto 8-track for the Eldorado, 'cuz I'm putting the original 8-track back in this winter.

It'll never make the trip to California (whence it came), but when you come to Dallas, you'll ride in style, and listen that way too.

BTW, Dallas had an outstanding live jazz / lounge place, called "Strictly Tabu," open from the early 50's 'til very recently. Its loss was a tragedy.

Strictly Tabu has been replaced by some mundane storefront retail. I don't know if the place cratered; the owner lost interest; or rent just got too high. Sad loss; it was kinda neat to have a place in town where my wife and I could go and chill, and know that it was a place frequented by my parents' generation in the late 40s.

Sccutler:
I hate when that happens. We have a similar place here in San Francisco called the Orbit Room. It has an aviation them. They play lounge music all the time. They also have lots of old 1960s era Pam Am, Olympic, TWA and BOAC advertisments on display.
You MUST check it out next time you are in town.
