Equinox Exotica




Equinox: the time when the sun crosses the plane of the earth's equator, making night and day of approximately equal length all over the earth and occurring about March 21 (vernal equinox) and Sept. 22 (autumnal equinox).

Exotica:  things excitingly different or unusual; especially :  literary or artistic items having an exotic theme or nature.

Behold, a soundtrack of sorts to celebrate the arrival of Spring & all the exotic moods & inspiration it unleashes!

As always,

*** ENJOY ***

Focal Point : Raymond Scott, phase 1



In his early career, Raymond Scott (a true innovator & always ahead of his time) attempted to revitalize Swing (Jazz) music through tight, busy arrangements and reduced reliance on improvisation. Although Scott never scored cartoon soundtracks, his music is familiar to millions because of its adaptation by Carl Stalling in over 120 classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. He later became a pioneer in electronic music which you can hear towards the end of this play list.

As always,

*** ENJOY ***
