Once Martin Denny had established his credentials as the "father of exotica" with the 1957 album Exotica and its hit Quiet Village, along with several other similar-themed albums like Exotica, Vol. 2 & 3, Forbidden Island and Primitiva, he began veering into easy listening territory.
A Taste of Honey, released in 1962, was once such example. The title track, which was a hit for Denny, is below for your listening and downloading pleasure. Denny is on piano, with the future leader of the Baja Marimba Band, Julius Wechter, on vibes.
