    Over the course of two compact discs, The Exotic Moods of Les Baxter collects most of Baxter's biggest hits, plus a selection of rare and previously unreleased material. For casual fans, the collection is fine, if a little long -- two discs is a lot of Baxter for listeners with a passing interest in exotica. For the more dedicated easy listening/exotica collector, this compilation is useful.

He made a few albums for Reprise — Soul Of The Drums (which featured the great Olatunji on percussion), The Primitive And The Passionate (an exotic record), and Les Baxter’s Balladeers (an attempt to cash in on the folk boom which featured a pre-Byrds David Crosby).

    They burst out of the speakers and draw you into their web of adventure with a depth of sound rarely heard on exotica recordings. Les truly was a musical powerhouse and is rightly considered to be in the same class as Mancini, Denny and Schifrin; his vast career was acknowledged with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. This collection would be an ideal starting point for anyone who is curious about exotica and .

    Oct 01,  · Audio Track 5 contains an excerpt from the song “Jungle River Boat,” which, although lighter on percussion than the rest, once again uses the vibraphone as a cue for the banks of a lush environment. It also features one of my favorite Exotica techniques, vocalise (wordless singing), heavy on the soprano.
