Vintage Lounge Music

This new sound had deep Latin roots; trumpeter and bandleader Herb Alpert, Bossa Nova master Sergio Mendes and bandleader Xavier Cugat used the sounds and rhythms of Latin America to breathe life into the admittedly "white-bread" music of lounge. Baxter and vocalist Yma Sumac created "exotica," while hipster Juan Garcia Esquivel and pianist/keyboardist Dick Hyman made futuristic, space age music for a country on the cusp of space exploration. A few years later, the light sounds of Lounge were squelched by the rise of rock.
