The Sounds & Voices Of Henry Mancini
Sunset - A Product Of Liberty Records
This is a later attempt by Mancini to cover all of the great "exotica" songs. The vibe of this album is different from his earlier efforts in the late 50s or early 60s. The sound, like the sample I've posted above, is subdued, quiet. Good stuff!
