Frankie Carle - The Tropical Style of Frankie Carle


Piano based Exotica Lite. Frankie was a legendary big band pianist that continued to record and play live long after the demise of big band as a popular genre. This one is from 1966 and has yer "Bali Ha'i" and yer "Quiet Village" and yer "Ebb Tide," "Pearly Shells," "Yellow Bird" etc etc.

Nice to play around the pool whilst sipping Rum Barrels.

Great to see you back. I've been hanging out for some Tiki goodness. I've just posted my one and only Tiki album (they're not so common down here in Australia)...

This is a great album by Frankie Carle. He also recorded an album called "Honolulu Honky-Tonk." I have the LP and reel to reel tape.
I will start a blog with some exotica albums soon.

As a very popular bandleader in the 1940s and 1950s, Carle was nicknamed "The Wizard of the Keyboard",so my grandpa said me that Carle was so spectacular and in the shows the people could enjoy some great music to dance!22dd
