I need the help and advice for those Goners well versed in their knowledge of different musical genres. I need some Lounge music, stat. Instrumental, bongo-laden, hep-cat shit. Horns and piano, too. Any of you smooth motherfuckers got any tips?

Hanatarash live 1982.

There are about two Hanatarash tracks, the rest is all calypso, bongo lounge.
Also 'Ultra Lounge' would probably be good, I see it on soulseek alot. but haven't heard it yet.

Also 'She Had a Taste for Music', isn't bad.

Les Baxter
Martin Denny

If you really don't have any it'd probably be fastest just to get any of the first few volumes of the CD comps called "Ultra lounge" which are readily available.

Pick up any albums with Cha Cha in the title. Usually a dollar a piece. 1 out of 5 should be a winner.

My own hometown hero.

My next door neighbor is an old lady of like 80-something who tells me all the time how Sam Butera was a friend of hers and her husband's and how her husband, r.i.p., once got up and sang with Louie Prima.

Hey Womb Raider, do you remember a saxophonist that played at...the 545 Club on Bourbon? It was a long time ago, but I think he was still playing there when I was there just three years ago. Kind of a funk-honker guy? Hot lounge music for sure, though.

PS..GREAT link, thanks.

Check for "Persuasive Percussion" or "Provocative Percussion" LP's at your local thrift stores. They have lots of dots on the cover and all are good.

How much time do you have until you need some lounge/ ez/ exotica? I'm in the mood to make a comp.

That one red eyed willy mentioned is awesome. I wish I had it.

I gots tons of time. Me and my family own a martini/cocktail lounge up here in WA together. We pick the music, and have a good collection in the 300 disc player. A lot of jazz/blues/jump/rock and roll/standards/some other various shit (most locals have been introduced, and regularly request, to hear American Deathray here). Its mostly meant as background music. I'm just tired of the same old shit when i goes and drinks me some girly cocktails. I been throwin in some random comps (some tiki/surf/exotica/etc) to not roust the natives, but i need more. thanks you swanky goners!

Walter Wanderly did some great bossa nova, including the immortal Summer Samba. Can't go wrong with him.

His stuff with Luis Henriquez on Vereve is great too.

Fave Wanderley cut is his version of "Surfboard" (Esquivel had a great version also) on The Walter Wanderly Set record on CTI. It's total spacestation lounge.

Since you have all the time in the world I'll take my time and set you up with a lounge/ now sound comp when I can afford some blanck cd's.
