It sounds like I would suggest Nicola Conte to you. Modern and retro all in one, and very peppy and even dancable, with a latin feel.

OF COURSE, We all need our recommended daily allowance of the iconic Ultra Lounge series by Capitol.

Hi,

Check out Daniele Luppi at his site:

http://www.danieleluppi.com/

His album, "An Italian Story" although recorded in the last few years, has an extremely retro-bossa sound. He was brought up in Venice, Italy and was very influenced by his parents' taste in music. You can hear samples of each song at the site.

His album features many of the original musicians who worked on several of the spaghetti western scores including the whistler from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly."
Keep on keepin' on,

THANK YOU.

You all just nailed it! LOVE the tracks I was able to listen to on Amazon - Mel Henke was very fun; will have to get that one for sure. Also loved Nicola Conte and I've already ordered Daniele Luppi - brilliant!

Glad to help and glad to help Daniele. He's a gem of a friend and a most talented musician/writer/arranger.
Keep on keepin' on,

It's from 1963 and is the best synthesis of laid-back cool and strings that you'll ever hear. No vocals, however, but that's a good thing!

Try Stan Getz- he sort of introduced Jobim, Gilberto to the american scene and together they created Bossa Nova- also try Gilberto's wife Astrud Gilberto- she did an awesome cover of Fly me to the Moon used in commercials, and recently in the movie "Down with Love"

I do like Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66, mind you, but the previous incarnation, Brasil '65, is the ultimate stuff. Very elegant, spare, straight-ahead acoustic bossa nova featuring some excellent jazzy winds from Bud Shank. It's available on cd, but minus the cool cover art of the original Capitol lp.

Burt Bachrach

Postby mark71665 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 12:59 am

I'm partial to Burt Bachrach, though his music is "perhaps" a little TOO obvious/overplayed, or whatever I'm trying to say. (Like saying Elvis represents the '50's and The Beatles represent the '60's in the rock scene.) Hey-nothing wrong with 'Walk On By' or 'Alfie'. I lllllike 'em, dad-gummit!

XM Radio has an online-only channel called "On the Rocks" that is all lounge, all the time.

I hate to pitch my own radio show, but some people seem to like it. ;)

The Bachelor Pad Radio Show:

I do a live broadcast on-line every Friday night at 11pm (eastern)/8pm (pacific). During the show, we hold a live chat here at Lotta Living.

Esquivel

Postby black651 » Fri May 11, 2007 11:35 pm

I love Esquivel also!! I play a bunch of his stuff on the way to work and it never fails to get me in a good mood for the shift.

I picked up a record recently entitled "Lonesome Echo" by the "Great One", Jackie Gleason. The cover was designed by the artist, Salvador Dali. It intrigued me, and since it was in pristine condition, I forked over the fifty cents it was listed at SA and brought it home for a listen. Not bad at all. I transferred it over to my computer and now it is also on my MP3 player's MCM playlist.

I am listening to "Harlem Nocturne" right now as I post this. :)

That's my wife Shan posting that Keerazy Records link.

I didn't think there was more than ONE copy of that Alcoa LP. Does your copy have anything on the back? Mine just has handwritten notes about what will eventually go there.

Hey, I redrew the lettering from Jackie Gleason's Lonesome Raod for my Keerazy Records logo.
