The Enchanted Sea is the last in the unbroken line of the more experimental exotica records; subsequent records tend to emphasize repertoire over unusual instruments. While softer in mood and slower in tempo than previous albums, this one retains the emphasis on exotic sounds and effects. A sleepy harbor and seaside mood is developed through the use of a conch-shell trumpet (traditionally used to signal the approach of royalty in Hawaii), foghorn, bird calls, and even whistling.
