focal point : Combustible Edison

Combustible Edison was one of several lounge music acts that led a brief resurgence of interest in the genre during the mid-1990s. Unlike other bands with a more ironic take on the lounge scene, Combustible Edison took the music seriously and strove to add to what its members saw as a canon of works by Esquivel, Henry Mancini and Martin Denny.

Trouser Press wrote "As the band that poured the first shot in the Cocktail Revolution, this Boston-area combo brought lounge music into the '90s — or, more accurately, transported taste-makers back to the suburbia of the '50s — with strikingly authentic interpretations of some of the most unauthentic sounds known to mankind"

As always,

*** ENJOY ***
