I'm not the Martin Denny fan I was 40+ years ago, but his kind of lounge music still holds a place in my heart and I still have a half-dozen of his LPs. (Les Baxter and Yma Sumac--the avatars of exotica--are old favorites, too.) My wife, my parents and I visited Hawai'i 21 years ago--my parents and I lived there when I was a toddler in the mid-'50s--and it was a great pleasure to eat a mahi-mahi dinner at the Sheraton Moana (which 60 years ago was the biggest hotel in Waikiki, and is now probably the smallest) while the pianist played "Quiet Village" in the background.
