Imagine yourself on a wrap-around porch of some grand house basking in the warmth of a summer sunset. Maybe you are simply lounging on a beach with a cocktail in one hand and the hand of the one you love in the other. Perhaps you are in a tuxedo or flaming red cocktail dress and having a wonderfully dry martini (shaken, not stirred) before you get ready to head to the dance floor.
If any of those situations are real or just party of your dreams, this CD from Ultra-Lounge is for you. Rare is the day when you will find some neon decorated, pseudo-tropical paradise lounge or restaurant where drinks were served in coconut cups with little umbrellas. But you can hear the music from them. This CD has the Mambo interwoven in each and every song. You can literally see the band in their white jackets and the lavish costumes on the showgirls as they entertain you.
Yma Sumac drops in for a two song trip down memory lane. You can hear the passion and the fun in her voice. Mariah Carey eat your heart out. The organ tracks are quite amusing, and the Glow Worm Cha Cha will change your life. (Well, not really, but it shouldn't be missed.)
If you ever wanted to visit the famed Coconut Grove or be part of the action with Ricky Ricardo's Band, you need to order this CD. Even if you find that the music is just a throw-back to the days when people in limos were movie stars (and not two girls from Encino using daddy's credit card), it is still a hilarious and joyour romp threw yesteryear.
Fix a highball, add a slice of pineapple, play this CD, and enjoy life.

Between Capitol's fine "Ultra Lounge" series and RCA's wacky "History of Space Age Pop" series, I am a happy, swingin' cat these days!
The reason I chose this particular CD to write a review one is twofold. First off, it's just such fun to hear music that is all about a good time as opposed to angst. Secondly, the song "Manana (Is Soon Enough For Me) by Jackie Davis". I love the Hammond Organ as well as the TV show "Seinfeld". A few years back, there was an episode on where Kramer and Newman were making sausages in Jerry's apartment with this as their theme song. I don't know why, but I just found it all so hilarious. I then became obsessed with finding the song. After I had all but given up, I was record shopping one day and found a record called "Hammond Gone Cha-Cha" by Jackie Davis. I recognized the name and some of the songs from the Ultra Lounge "Organs in Orbit" CD. (I initially bought the CD hoping this song would be on it!) I figured for $5 it was worth a shot. I get it home and throw it on the turntable. The songs were great, but I the one I wanted wasn't on there...or so I thought. As the needle hit the groove on the last song, I was overcome. After 2 years, I had found it! Since then, I have kept an eye out for more copies of it, but, in 5 years, have yet to run across another copy. But it matter no more because it's here with a lot of other great music! May many more Kramer fans and music lovers alike enjoy these swingin', sausage grindin' tunes! Giddy Up!!!

This is a solid volume. A lot of fun, a little cheesy, and all-around danceable, it's perfect for when your friends are over and you're all feeling a little goofy. And it covers all the bases, too: Hammond organ (Jackie Davis and the John Buzon Trio), Lounge staples (Yma Sumac, Billy May, and Jack Costanzo), popular Hollywood tunes redone Latin-style ("Hooray for Hollywood," "Peter Gunn Mambo"), a Desi Arnaz tune ("El Cumbanchero"), and even some stuff that doesn't really fit ("Chihuahua," "Oink-Oink Mambo," "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans," and "Can-Can Overture").
Everything here is just plain fun. The drunken slurs of "Tico Tico Samba," the rip-roaring, fiery "Peter Gunn Mambo" (one of the best), the cute and appropriately cheesy "Glow Worm Cha-Cha-Cha," and the funny tinkling piano duet "Cumana" demonstrate this best. Then there's Billy May's vamping "Hernando's Hideaway" (the song is originally the classic tango tune, here hardly recognizable as a sort of cha-cha) and Yma Sumac's mind-blowing Latin jam, "Taki Rari," which must be heard to be believed.
This one's a keeper!

The Ultra-Lounge series offers both great "party" albums and a good way to acquaint yourself with styles of music that you may not be familiar with. From swing, bossa nova, mambo and cha-cha to organ and saxaphone compilations, these CD's really set a mood and have become favorites at our parties. The "Mambo Fever" CD in particular has become a favorite, and countless friends have written down the title and added it to their own collections after hearing it at our house. Honestly, it's the first mambo album I have ever owned, but it opened my eyes to the fact that I genuinely enjoy this type of music (much to my surprise). If I had to summarize the CD in one word, I'd have to say: "Happy." The infectious rhythms and playful melodies keep my toes tapping from beginning to end.

This is a masterpiece! A masterpiece of kistch, but a masterpiece all the same.
Truly, there is not one track on this CD that is bad although there are some highlites: "Chihuahua"..perfect for when you suddenly feel like you should start a congo line. "Oink-Oink Cha-Cha"..you'd think it would be bad with a title like that, but it ain't. Both songs by Yma Sumac are awe inspiring. You will wonder..how does she get that vocal range and more importantly, why?
I have saved the best for last though my jet-setting, supersonic friends and that is "Glow Worm Cha-Cha"...seriously, need I go further? I think the title says it all.
No greater CD exists for creating a swank party anywhere...even if it's only you.
