(Note : Eden Ahbez (1908-1995) lived a consistent dropout and hippie lifestyle way
        before the movement was born in the mid '60s. As a poet and composer, he wrote
        the hit tune "Nature Boy" that gave Nat King Cole his 1st big success in 1948.
        On Eden's Island, originally released in 1960)

        B5.     I'm Glad There Is You
        B6.     Star Eyes

(Note : two of the most prolific pop jazz spheres were exotica, which accompanied the
        tiki culture that was omnipresent throughout the '50s and early '60s, and space
        age music,a rather pop-oriented, accessible style with hints of swing and vocal
        jazz spiced up with quite mind-altering sound effects. Moon Gas, a 1963 collab.
        between pianist and organist Dick Hyman and singer Mary Mayo, hits the center
        of the space age genre directly, with its dreamy tunes; haunting, melancholic
        vocal melodies; and groovy, swinging compositions that invite the listener to
        an easy dance. Strange little sounds whistle and sparkle around the rather
        uncomplicated, easy-listening, jazz-pop compositions)

CH      4807 1  MARTIN DENNY            EXOTICA                         LP      06.2016

This album by prolific legend Martin Denny gave an entire genre its name! Originally
released in 1956, the importance of 'Exotica' is more than just historical, f.i. since
the songs are all outstanding. Based on jazz and folk, this is an early example of 
mind altering music. The rhythmical base is rooted in Latin music, from mambo via
samba to bossa nova, and you find all the Latin American forms of dance music combined
with bebop elements, as well as Asian percussion and harmonies. There are colourful
tunes that make you think of Japanese folk, but you will also recognize melodies that
would be suitable for American western movie soundtracks. The easy listening sound of
the '50s comes as the last ingredient and is the icing on the cake.

CH      4809 1  EDEN AHBEZ              EDEN'S ISLAND                   LP      06.2016

New edition! Eden Ahbez (born George Alexander Aberle) was an American songwriter and
recording artist of the 1940's-1960's, whose lifestyle in California was influential
on the hippie movement. Ahbez is best known for composing the song 'Nature Boy', which
became a #1 hit in 1948 for Nat 'King' Cole and has since become a pop and jazz
standard. 'Eden's Island', Ahbez' only solo-album, is a unique and superb collection
of exotica and easy listening tunes that will make you feel the world is a better
place. At least for a short while.
