Jazzville Presents Hollywood Film Noirchestra: Exotica!

Cascade Lounge


February 29, 2024    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Jazzville and Skip Heller present a tribute to the tradewind tunes of Yma Sumac, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman and others with a 10-piece ensemble, the Hollywood Film Noirchestra.

Special guest Lena Marie Cardinale sublimely recreates the voice of Yma Sumac, the diva of exotica! This music travels from mysterious to sublime, even whimsical, with sound effects, bird calls and beautifully haunting vocalizations. Jazz meets the tropical jungle isles!

Exotica is a musical genre named after the 1957 Martin Denny album of the same name that was popular during the 1950s to mid-1960s with Americans who came of age during World War II. The album, Exotica, contained Denny’s most famous song, Quiet Village.

The Hollywood Film Noirchestra is lead by visionary musician-arranger Skip Heller, a desert-dweller with encyclopedic knowledge of music and musicians. This will be our third show with Skip and his Hollywood Film Noirchestra, and this one will certainly be the most exotic!
