* Green coloured Vinyl. Limited Edition * First time reissued on Jackpot Records, Martin Denny's Quiet Village was originally released in 1959. The iconic album artwork reflected the fantasy of Denny’s Influential fusion of tropical moods.
The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare percussion, rhythmic piano, and just the right amount of vibes and bird calls to give the track a really haunting feel. That approach is echoed throughout the set – with shifting instrumentation that includes celeste, bongos, marimbas, and marimbula as well!
