It's Samba Night at the Toucan Lounge. I can listen to the stuff all day. In fact, I have.

Very enjoyable piece of ballroom entertainment, and I liked the Ronnie Hazlehurst "breakdowns", which instilled a '70s UK TV sitcom atmosphere to the proceedings.

Good work :)

Thank you, Seismic. I had to look up to find out who Hazlehurst is. A composer, huh? I found a medley of his stuff on Youtube - he wrote some silly stuff. Still, he was definitely a pro. I'm flattered . . . I guess.

Nice song, sounds like straight from the 60ies. How did you get this cheesy oldskool sound? Did you sample old LPs? Or did you put a bandpass filter over the song?

I write music of a kind that I like. Some of it comes from the late 19th century. You'll notice that I don't write anything from the period staring about 1990.
