Info zu Rains in the Tropics (Remastered)

A really wonderful album from the height of the exotica years – but a set that's got a fair bit more jazz in the mix than most from that generation too! Gene Rains plays vibes – and moves between moodier moments, ala Martin Denny/Arthur Lyman, and more straightforward jazz styles – which often have some great modal elements in the mix! The Rains group played hotels in Hawaii during the late 50s and early 60s – but are maybe more like a Pacific take on territory of the Quartette Tres Bien, thanks to strong work from Allen Watanabe on drums, Archie Grant on bass, and Byron Peterson on piano. Titles include "Mapuana", "Bancock Cock Fight", "Tiki", "Off Shore", "Shadow Of Love", "Jasmine & Jade", and "Lonely Winter"

Vibraphonist Gene Rains was the leader of the Gene Rains Group, a Hawaiian jazz quartet that specialized in the post-World War II style known as exotica, which combined jazz, Oceania, light Latin rhythms, and other chilled-out musical island flotsam in a sort of fantasy soundscape of the tropics. The group’s recording career was brief, only lasting from the early to mid-’60s, during which four albums were released, three with Decca Records: 1960’s Lotus Land, 1961’s Far Across the Sea, and 1962’s Rains in the Tropics, and one with Vocalion Records, The Call of the Tropics.
