Cocktail/Lounge Music

It's the soundtrack of cocktail hour, a sacred time of martinis and cosmopolitans in 1950s America. Music that toned down the bombast of Big Band & Swing, but still had enough complexity to challenge music lovers. The light sounds of Lounge were squelched by the rise of rock 'n' roll, but the music remains a reminder of a classic time.
