Summer Sounds

Summer Sounds

Summer Sounds is designed to be a soundtrack for your summer days and nights. It features "Exotica" music a la Martin Denny, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman and many lesser-known in the genre, both vintage and contemporary, the "tropical-esque" sounds of the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Cal Tjader, and Manuel Galban, some both refreshing and tranquil instrumental "surf" music, and a dash of summer-related pop music. A perfect musical companion for your summertime activity; whether it be gardening, reading, or just relaxing with a cocktail while the soothing sounds of ocean waves both invite and lull you for an hour. For those familiar with Music From The North Shore, think of it as North Shore lite!
