Playing tracks by
claudine longet, sergio mendes and brasil '66, sandpipers, herb alpert and the tijuana brass, julius wechter and the baja marimba band and more.
A half hour mix that best represents the stars of Herb and Jerry's roster circa the late 60s. I purposely took my Tijuana Brass and Baja Marimba Band selections from the Greatest Hits LPs rather than individual albums. Three A&M comps are also represented: 'Million Dollar Sampler', 'Family Portrait' and 'Something Festive'. The last in that list was brand new and never opened until today.
It was tough not to include CTI artists or at least Tom Jobim but I wanted to save my jazz and/or bossa nova for another mix and another day.
The Lani Hall closer doesn't exactly fall in line with the era represented otherwise but hey, who is more royal than the king's wife?
