The best way I can describe this compilation is to say that the music sounds like the sort of stuff you'd hear in a groovy old cinema before they show the movie. Or maybe when a t.v channel is having a break in transmission. The tracks glide gracefully between exotica, lounge and easy listening with the common thread being the presence of various organs. Quality is maintained throughout but I do particularly like the jazzier moments comprised within "Movin' At Midnight" and "Fever Comin' Home Baby" ( a mash up of "Fever" and "Comin' Home" ). All in all it's what you would expect from an Ultra Lounge comp, lots of sexy, slinky cocktail friendly groovers.

Interesting song choices in there. Another great post.

Speaking of cinemas, remember this?
