I already had the track Una Notte di Napoli, and a couple of my friends were great fans of Pink Martini. The cost of this compilation was pretty low so I took a chance. I would classify the music as being samba / bosa nova / Americo-Cuban / Sergio Mendez / Brasil 66 style easy listening, think bongos, castanets, trumpets, unison backing vocals, performed by technically excellent musicians. The female vocal lead is very smooth and seductive. So for me it is entertaining background music but not soul-stirring. If I saw them live I'm sure I would find them very engaging.
