The Music of Les Baxter
Born: March 14, 1922
Official Site: http://www.lesbaxter.com/
As one of the founders of the Exotica style of music Les was to bring the aura of the islands to the mainland and treat us all to a warm tropical breeze and a cool drink. An arranger and producer as well as a performer Les has worked with the likes of Mel Torme and produced music for many film scores and radio programs. And along with the lounge sounds Les also brought us a taste of the Space-Age with its theremin sounds and stylings. And the cover art is spledid!
