Martin Denny (April 10, 1911 - March 2, 2005) was an American musician. He gained fame as one of the most successful producers of exotica music, a type of big band music with Latin rhythms and overtones of Pacific Ocean culture that found its origins in artists such as Les Baxter, and which is largely scorned by critics despite extreme popularity in the 1950s and 1960s.
