The “Ultra-Lounge” CD series by Capital Records purchased by Music Library!


“The neon above the door reads Ultra-Lounge. By walking through this door you step back into time. Not too far back. Just a few decades. Back to a time when “evolution” meant taking out the olive and putting in an onion. When Generation X was a secret atomic weapon aimed at the White House by double agents and long-legged Russian spies whose names only Matt Helm could pronounce. This is a place clothed in the skins of leopards and sharks. An era bathed in high-octane hi-balls and swimming in elixirs made more potent by garni and dangerously curved glassware. Time here is viewed through the seductive haze of slow-heated gazes. Lipstick-kissed cigarettes ashtray-dance with cigar stubs and cherry stems. The atmosphere mambos to a soundtrack of cool. Rumbling saxophones, jazzy vibes, over-heated Hammonds, and the sexy chill of a brush across a cymbal. Bold, exotic rhythms strut to the cacophony of the Atomic-Age.”
