Martin Denny - From Maui with Love


The last of our triptych is Martin Denny's From Maui with Love. This one you can play in the Bentley, in fact, its perfect for it.

Most of this LP is just Martin and his piano. Tracks 7-10 (including Quiet Village) have Martin accompanied by drums and string bass. Released in 1980, this is almost a restaurant record as the album was recorded to "celebrate his current engagement at the Wailea Beach Hotel," and Martin included a song that he wrote ("Raffles'") that "takes its name from the beautiful gourmet restaurant where he performs to the listening delight of its diners and his many fans."

No bird calls on this one. Just THE MAN and his piano.

The Denny = beautiful. I can't thank you enough for that. The Lyman is great, too. As for the Baxter, it's available elsewhere, which may be why it wasn't the hit you'd thought it would be. It's still an amazing, essential album, though.

Martin Denny was an excellent piano player in America, I think that his music is perfect to feel better when we are sad, so I would like to get an album of him, I love the information dd22
