During the 1950s, 'Father of Exotica' Martin Denny helped American audiences expand their horizons by incorporating Asian, Polynesian, and Latin instrumentation into his group's easy-listening repertoire, along with birdcalls and other sounds, spawning a new genre that took the nation by storm; he toured South America and had a residency in Hawaii earlier on, embedding such elements. Third LP 'Primitiva' is a total delight, Julius Wechter's vibes and marimba contrasting Tak Shindo's koto and August Colon's Latin percussion; 'M'bira' and 'Mau Mau' draw us to Africa, 'Llama Serenade' to Peru and 'Bangkok Cockfight' to Thailand, the closing 'Jamaica Farewell' a reconfigured Caribbean sunset. Strap in and enjoy this wild, mild ride!
