Playlist 470 - Nov 28 2017

There’s a kinda core of lounge music at the heart of this week’s show.

Howe Gelb has expanded on last year’s Future Standards album with the wonderful Lonna Kelley joining him for some new songs and a few updated. Check that for the voices alone, the sumptuous backing is a bonus.

The late Andy Williams has always had a lot of love round here. Here he is with a gorgeous arrangement of a classic.

And some great Italian jazz from Armando Trovajoli. Brilliant and thanks to Trunk Records for the tip.

As we’re at it let’s throw Lee Hazlewood into that basket too. From his masterful Swedish soujourn in 1970.

Tenniscoats, a different kind of lounge, a beautiful drifting naive folk pop one.

And Loma. Not lounge per se. But slow moving and weighty and absolutely compelling.
