Martin Denny - Exotica Classica

Born Free
Martin Denny
Exotica Classica
For Those In Love
Liberty LST-7513
1967

Here's another terrific Denny release, all-be-it one of his later efforts. There seems to be less interest in Denny's later stuff, but I can assure you his work remained strong. This album is a 60s cool listening album stamped with the quirky Denny touches that make his music so unique.

I doubted that I would ever stumble across a cover of Born Free that I would like, and here it is as crazy as it sounds with Denny writing his Quiet Village rhythm groove into the arrangement.
