Lounge music is a type of easy listening music popularized in the 1950s and 1960s.
Most Lounge music was instrumental featuring a full band accompanied by an orchestra. Though some artists still had you groovin’ with just a an organ, bass, guitar and drums.
In the mid 1990s lounge had a brief revival thanks to the return of another old time style of music, Swing. Capitol Records released an amazing collection called Ultra Lounge. Each disk highlighted a different genre of lounge music. Whether it was Space Age, Bossa Nova, Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo, Polynesian, French, Exotica, or eccentric arrangements of popular songs, there was plenty far out sounds for your ears to indulge.
Ultra Lounge Vol 11: Organs in Orbit highlights the many great lounge songs that had the organ as the main instrument. There is no replacing the legendary sound of a Hammond organ on the older records and this album proves that! With tracks by The John Buzon Trio, Denny McLain, Ernie Fremman and others, this album is a great one to put on, lounge out, and relax.
Let’s enjoy the opening track from this great lounge music collection.
