There is a long tradition of the genre “Easy Listening”. It originated in the 1950s when some great band leaders used the sound of big bands for simple arrangements of evergreens to reach a larger audience.
Prime examples are the arrangements of James Last, Bert Kaempfert, Ray Conniff, Billy Vaughn and Mantovani. Soloists and small groups later also played this genre, which ultimately sank into cheap department store music.
For our music-making coffee machine Alexis, “Easy Listening” is the ultimate genre, even though it has largely disappeared from the vocabulary, and today the genre “Lo-Fi” is more common for relaxed, rhythmic music. Alexis’ mastermind would like to take up the above mentioned examples in contemporary sound.
