Caribbean Moonlight - Les Baxter

Caribbean Moonlight
Les Baxter
Capitol T733
1956

Stacked up against all my other "exotica" albums, this one is a gem. The release contains favorite titles such as Taboo and The Breeze And I. All tracks are lushly orchestrated to set a mood that reflects the cover art. Baxter suggests, with instrumentation only, exotica effects such as bird calls and surf.
