Denny, Martin
▪ 2006

      American bandleader (b. April 10, 1911, New York, N.Y.—d. March 2, 2005, Hawaii Kai, near Honolulu, Hawaii), specialized in so-called exotica—music that combined jazz, Polynesian rhythms and instrumentation, and jungle sounds—which was popular in the 1950s and '60s. The first of his 38 albums, Exotica, made it to the top of the charts in 1959, and the single “Quiet Village” made it to the number two spot.
