La musique dite lounge (lounge-music) se réfère initialement à la musique jouée dans les salons des bars d'hôtels et de casinos, mais également dans les petits cabarets et les piano-bars. C'est la version "excentrique" de la easy listening.

Née dans les années 1950-1960, elle succède à l'ère du swing des grands orchestres. Conservant le côté doux, sirupeux, "ambiance" de la easy listening, la lounge intègre un côté expérimentation, mêlant instruments exotiques, futuristes et nouvelles technologies (stéréo ...). Elle est un des symboles du style de vie kitsch des années 1960. Elle connaît un regain de popularité depuis les années 1990.

Contemporainement, le terme de lounge music se réfère également aux musiques électroniques de type down tempo, au rythme calme (n'excédant pas 90 battements par minute).

Aujourd'hui, la musique lounge est très diverse, elle va d'une ambiance blues à une ambiance beaucoup plus rythmée approchant la house en passant par du down tempo. Ce genre musical est en plein essor, de nombreuses radios internet se disent « de lounge » et un grand nombre de fans commencent à apparaître.

* Les Baxter : pionnier de l'exotica, un sous-genre de la lounge, reprenant des thèmes de musique latino-américaine. Il utilisa beaucoup le theremin, premier instrument électronique.

* Esquivel : certainement le plus excentrique, il créa la space age pop. Faisant apparaître des instruments surréalistes et des parties vocales faites d'onomatopées. Mexicain d'origine, il intégrait des rythmes allant du cha-cha au mambo. Il enregistra un album en 1962 , "Latin-Esque", faisant jouer deux orchestres dans deux studios différents en même temps par retour radio, le premier album en séparation stéréo totale. La critique a toujours été divisée à son sujet, comme beaucoup de compositeurs lounge.

* Burt Bacharach : maître de la chanson lounge. Ses mélodies sophistiquées et légères peuvent s'apparenter à la easy listening, mais le mélange d'influences musicales de ses compositions répondent plus aux styles lounge, jazz, bossa nova, pop, rythmes sud-américain etc.

La plupart des artistes lounge de la première époque vivent une fin de carrière à Las Vegas, où ils sont portés en triomphe.

Généralement il s'agit de reprises de standards allant de la pop au classique en passant par le rock et le jazz.


En France, nous pouvons citer la renommée internationale du DJ Stéphane Pompougnac avec sa suite d'incontournables mix : Hôtel Costes ou de Claude Challe avec la série Buddha Bar Grand Palace Indolence http://www.myspace.com/grandpalaceindolence

On peut citer également The Dining Rooms, en Italie; Alphawezen, en Allemagne; Funki Porcini, en Grande Bretagne, très inspiré par Esquivel; et Sven van Hees en Belgique. L'excellent Richard Cheese avec ses reprises de rock en version lounge, est une véritable star à Las Vegas.

Il existe aussi de nombreuses compilations telles que Le Man Ray, Café del Mar, Ambient Lounge, City Lounge, Ibiza Lounge, Afterdark, Suite 706 Paris Madeleine, La Mezzanine de l'Alcazar,Erotic Lounge Vol. 1 2 3 4 5 6...


ENGLISH VERSION

Lounge music is a retrospective description of music popular in the 1950s and 1960s encompassing the exotica, easy listening, and space age pop genres. It is a type of mood music meant to evoke in the listeners the feeling of being in a place — a jungle, an island paradise, outer space, et cetera — other than where they are listening to it.
The range of lounge music encompasses beautiful music-influenced instrumentals, modern electronica (with chillout, Nu-jazz and downtempo influences), while remaining thematically focused on its retro-space-age cultural elements. The earliest type lounge music appeared during the 1920s and 1930s, and was known as Light music. Contemporaneously, the term lounge music also denotes the types of music played in hotels (the lounge, the bar), casinos, and piano bars.

Retrospective usage

Exotica, space-age pop, and some forms of easy listening music popular during the 1950s and 1960s are now broadly termed lounge. The term lounge does not appear in textual documentation of the period, such as Billboard magazine or long playing album covers, but has been retrospectively applied.

While rock and roll was generally influenced by blues and country, lounge music was derived from jazz and other musical elements borrowed from traditions around the world.

Exotica from such artists Les Baxter, Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman sold millions of records during its heydey. It combined music that was popular outside the USA, such as various Latin genres (e.g., Bossa Nova, Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo), Polynesian, French, etc. into a relaxed,[2] palatable sound. Such music could have some instruments exaggerated (e.g., a Polynesian song might have an exotic percussion arrangement using bongos, and vocalists imitating wild animals.) Many of these recordings were portrayed as originating in exotic foreign lands, but in truth were recorded in Hollywood recording studios by veteran session musicians. Another genre, space age pop, mimicked space age sound effects of the time and reflected the public interest in space exploration. With the advent of stereophonic technology, artists such as Esquivel used spatial audio techniques to full effect, creating whooshing sounds with his orchestra.

A good deal of lounge music was pure instrumental (i.e., no main vocal part, although there could be minor vocal parts). Sometimes, this music would be theme music from movies or TV shows, although such music could be produced independently from other entertainment productions. These instrumentals could be produced with an orchestral arrangement, or from an arrangement of instruments very similar to that found in jazz, or even rock and roll such as the Hammond Organ or electric guitar.

Lounge singers

Swinging music of the era is also considered lounge and consisted of a schmaltzy continuation of the swing jazz era of the 1930s and 1940s, but with more of an emphasis on the vocalist. The legendary Rat Pack of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr., along with similar artists such as Bobby Darin, Jackie Gleason, Wayne Newton, Louis Prima, Sonny King, and Sam Butera are notable examples. The music of Burt Bacharach was soon featured as part of many lounge singers' repertoires. Such artists performed mainly at featured lounges in Las Vegas casinos.

Lounge singers have a lengthy history stretching back to the decades of the early twentieth century. The somewhat derisive term lounge lizard was coined then, and less well known lounge singers have often been ridiculed as dinosaurs of past eras and parodied for their smarmy delivery of standards.In any event, these lounge singers, perhaps performing in a hotel or cocktail bar, are usually accompanied by one or two other musicians, and they favor cover songs composed by others, especially pop standards, many deriving from the days of Tin Pan Alley.

Many well known performers got their start as lounge singers and musicians. Although he claims not to have worked for very long, Billy Joel worked as a lounge musician and penned the song "Piano Man" about his experience. Not all lounge singers, however, sing lounge
