The Tropical Style - The Exotic Sounds Of Frankie Carle

Quiet Village
The Tropical Style of Frankie Carle
Arrangements by Jack Fascinato
Produced by Darol Rice
RCA Victor LSP-3609
1966

Carle, by 1966, was late to the exotica party. None-the-less he recorded this fine album complete with subtle early 60s pop/light jazz overtones. Carle along with his arranger, Jack Fascianto, created a distinctive, soft sound that pumped fresh life into the well covered song titles.

From the back cover: "Exotic" is one of those adjectives that conjures up more than Webseter would have us believe. With all due respect to well-meaning lexicographers, I happen to prefer the way Frankie Carle defines it is his album: impression of far-off lands… fleeting glimpses of foreign people… a musical travelogue through picture-postcard settings. – Harvey Siders, Contributing Editor, Hollywood Citizen-News
