I found this album quite by chance ~ in fact I would say it was fate. After hearing a snippet on the radio but not catching or being able to find the name of the artiste/s, I consigned it to a sweet memory.

Then, looking for a different CD for my music-mad husband for Valentine's day, I was auditioning various CDs when my 9 year old daughter, attracted by the attractive and unusual cover, handed me 'Hang on Little Tomato' by Pink Martini.

The title alone plus of course the cool name of the group ensured a listen and ~ lo and behold ~ it was the music I had heard before but thought I would never hear again.

To cut a long story short, my husband had never heard of Pink Martini nor their music either, which was unusual enough in itself.
However, more importantly, he absolutely adored it, as do I and both my children (9 & 5 years). We play and sing along with it constantly ~ we also dance to it: how could anyone not?
We immediately booked tickets to see Pink Martini live, as part of their European tour, at the Barbican in March.

We are jazz devotees in this house but enjoy most music from the Kaiser Chiefs to Italian opera.
However, this is by far the best collection of music I can ever remember discovering.

There is the dreadful dilemma of wanting to share it with the world and yet, at the same time, wanting to keep it greedily to ourselves as a secret treat!

It is, quite simply, delicious!

Pink Martini should be known as the little orchestra that walks a fine line in its music. The Portland, Oregon, outfit is deeply influenced by Latin music, jazz, cabaret, cinema scores and a smattering of other styles. But rather than simply aping legendary artists in their prime - and fooling only a few dim bulbs in the process - band shakes things up by writing its own material, or at least creating tasteful new arrangements that fit within the band's unique post-lounge framework. The band keeps the playful musical vibe on Hang On Little Tomato, but jettisons what kitsch factor it had, choosing to focus wholly on original material or stuff that isn't recognizable to the average music fan. It's been a seven year wait for fans since the band's fun debut, Sympathique, and while the blush is now off the rose, the band's creative ambitions and talent are never better displayed than here on its second effort. - Tad Hendrickson

"Everyone's hankering for Pink Martini. Not the drink, the band...they really have a groove."
Album Description
Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini.
Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based "little orchestra" was originally created in 1994 by Harvard-graduate Thomas M. Lauderdale to play at political fundraisers for progressive causes such as public broadcasting, clean water, libraries, civil rights and affordable housing. In the years following, Pink Martini has gone on to perform its multilingual repertoire on concert stages, in smoky clubs and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Greece, Turkey, Taiwan, Lebanon and the U.S.

This is such a delightful, blithe album - bound to cheer up the most mournful commuter. China Forbes' seemingly effortless vocals glide over beautifully arranged songs with a diverse set of origins. Only her French intonation seems a little uncomfortable...
There isn't a duff track on this album but I especially loved The Gardens of Sampson and Beasley and the stately, unexpected Kikuchiyo to Mohshimaso. And if Una Notte a Napoli does not have you tapping your toes you must be dead.

The 12 musicians crammed on stage in El Floridita, a basement club in London's Soho, are, if the hype is anything to go by, the new face of... well, no one is exactly sure what.

Snappily dressed in suits and ties, vocalist China Forbes in figure-hugging satin, this ensemble from Portland, Oregon, segue from Latin, jazz and pop to lounge, swing and world music with category-defying flair. Originals sound like standards: an upbeat show-tune makes way for an Afro-Cuban rumba. A big band number is followed by a catchy ditty in French.
There are songs in Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Greek, Croatian. Assisted by the showmanship of pianist Thomas M Lauderdale, the vibe is elegant, old-school danceable. Cocktail music for internationalists, perhaps. "If life is a cabaret, they are the band in the existential orchestra pit," said Variety. Whatever you call their sound, their name - Pink Martini - is one to remember.
Hang On Little Tomato, Pink Martini's second and current album, went straight in at number one on Amazon's best-seller list. It is currently zooming up the European charts; in France, where they are particularly loved, it has hit the commercial top 10. Their music continues to be used in film and TV (including The Sopranos), and spices up innumerable compilations.
Their fan-base is diverse, and growing. Not bad for an indie collective with an aversion to major record companies (their own label, Heinz, is named after Lauderdale's labrador), whose self-sufficient, pan-global aesthetic lets them perform what, where and with whom they want - a list that includes the choir from Lauderdale's old high school in Portland, more than 25 major orchestras across America, and Sharon Stone.
