Les Baxter- Caribbean Moonlight
This is one of my favorite Lounge/Exotica records. It has the breezy romanticism of Jackie Gleason and (a more subdued) island percussion of Martin Denny. Denny was for more lively times, this is anything but (and more consistent that the Denny LP's I've heard).
So dim the lights, fix a drink, and relax. Hell, more than relax...all but shut down. Just sip and imagine...
