A project by Billy May and Charlie Barnet.
May teamed up with Barnet around 1962 for an anonymous album of Hawaiian and tropical music. His lifestyle had finally slowed him down in the mid 1960s. He had a heart bypass operation in 1963, and ended a twenty-five year smoking habit. After a particularly hard night at Barnet's 51st birthday party, he stopped drinking completely. "Charlie and I planned it on a vacation in Hawaii," he later wrote. "We called ourselves the "The Kon-Tikis." . Actually, the group was called the Out-Islanders, and the album Polynesian Fantasy.
