Consistently pleasing, Latin Village is the triumph of Martin Denny's search for a new style, post-exotica. It doesn't hurt that many of the tunes are bossa novas. Significantly, Robert Drasnin lends his talents as co-arranger. (Drasnin has a "geographically challenged" exotica record of his own: Voodoo: Exotic Music from Polynesia and the Far East.) ~ Tony Wilds
