The Tikiyaki Orchestra - Swingin' Sounds For The Jungle Jetset

The Tikiyaki Orchestra - Swingin' Sounds For The Jungle Jetset (2009)

The Tikiyaki Orchestra exist in a class by themselves. There really is no other band quite like them on the planet. They take the Exotica tradition as established by pioneers Denny, Lyman and Baxter and bring it into the 21st century. Their unmistakable sound is a blend of the coolest retro styles–exotica, lounge, space-age bachelor pad, crime jazz, spy, surf, spaghetti western and more.
Their 4 albums…. “StereoExotique” , “Swingin’’ Sounds for the Jungle Jetset”, "Aloha, Baby !" and "Idol Worship and other Primitive Pleasures" prove that, Exotica is not just background music for the swingin’ tikiphile, but you can actually hum along, due to catchy, concise and well crafted songwriting, something that was not always necessarily a main component of the original Exotica sound. You'll love all the tropical bird effects, tremolo guitars, and "take me to a simpler time" feel ingrained in the music. The whole album is solid and upbeat, with no weak spots, and even the cheesy intro seems appropriate once you get used to it. The sound quality is excellent, even played through a High-End home system or headphones. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this for your Luau and Tiki parties.
