Lyman stuff is never bad 26 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Okay, so it's not the island music you're used to hearing from Arthur Lyman. But Arthur Lyman never played a "bad" piece of music in his life, so even these "pop" tunes sound good coming from the Arthur Lyman Group. If you like vibes, marimba, and every piece of percussion equipment in the land, then it's all here. And he always had an amazing pianist working the ivories. Different, yes. But still good Arthur Lyman sounds.

Swingin' Island Rhythms COvering Sixties Hits! 16 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Arthur Lyman's smooth, smooth Hawaiian jazz/exotica combo covered many a pop hit over the years. 12 of the best are included here: "Girl from Ipanema," "Hey Jude," and "Hawaii Five-O" are all given the cool treatment to make a great, if quiet, party album.

Lifeless, dull, uncreative "reinterpretations" 7 Jan. 2008
By Laszlo Matyas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Since he didn't often hit the charts with his Tiki-lounge-jazz sound, Arthur Lyman often felt obliged to fill out his albums with covers of then-popular songs from the world of rock and pop. These versions were instrumental, but otherwise they sound like exotica-informed carbon copies of the originals. The whole thing now sounds incredibly cheesy and dated. It's a callback to the more superficial side of the 60s, the era of shameless hipsters, space-age bachelor pads, and a consumer culture obsessed by gimmicks and the easy pretense of sophistication. The arrangements are bubbly, the instrumentation is polished and professional, and the melodies kind of drift by with the unmistakable music of pure commercial conceit. There is, admittedly, a certain postmodern charm to the whole thing, but for the most part it's unoriginal and boring. Despite the liner notes' adamant proclamation of the contrary, this is little more than glorified elevator music, the kind of thing you'd play at a wedding reception or some other event where nobody's really listening to the music. If you're interested in Lyman, there are much better places to start. Try the Taboo album.

enjoyable... seems short. Not as exotic as TABOO by same group.

All The Worst 18 May 2000
By Robert Carlberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Arthur Lyman was (and is) one of the most soulful and inventive jazz players around. Most of his music stands up well today, it was so far ahead of his time.
Unfortunately for some reason -- possibly label pressure -- he also had occasional embarrassing pop songs on his albums, played for jokes or "so awful it's funny" collections. Well, this release (and that smelly Christmas release) collects all of the unfunny "joke songs" that he ever did, so if you want to wallow in debasement it's all here.
