|Various Artists / Calvert Deforest's...|
|The Dead Kenny-Gs|
Lounge music compilation, released as a soundtrack for an imaginary Calvert DeForrest movie (you might remember him as Larry "Bud" Melvin™®©NBC). Mostly older, well worn stuff (check out tracks 6, 9, and 13 for the best), but I really liked a couple of the newer songs (track 2 by Combustible Edison and especially track 1 by San Francisco's experimental lounge duo Tipsy)|
1) **Darker lounge, slow with lots of sounds and brooding guitar
2) *Female vocal over beat
3) *Funky Quincy Jones, unfortunately overused recently (due to inclusion in 'Austin Powers' soundtrack). It was also sampled in The Dream Warriors 'My Definition'.
4) Slow Bacharach female vocal number. I still like Isaac Hayes' version better.
5) Up-tempo, guitar and horns, soundtrack/supermarket feel.
6) *Mancini classic, big band, famous bassline.
7) Ultra-lounge slow orchestral piece
8) Jobim, sped up a little with female vocal and strings
9) *Quiet piano punctuated by loud horns
10) Arthur Lyman vibes served up on a slow bossa
11) Cheesy slow Hammond
12) Pop male vocal
13) *Soul jazz remake of Doors song, similar to Shirley Bassey version without vocals
14) Whoah, Calvert dialog over 'Tequila'--really weird.
