This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

You could do this exactly & sort of...round the edges differently & make it good or @ least OK...It's not a billion miles from 'Darn That Dream' on 'Birth of the Cool' for example...

i know that struggle with the 4 fresh, i was trying to convince myself there was something to like about their version of "Temptation" or something and I just gave up

Understandable. Their "Winter Love" changed it all for me

I think of old commercials when I hear that close harmony-very brassy
