5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal, 10 Jun 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hey Eugene (Audio CD)
The first Pink Martini was good; the second was better - but this, their third, is best! (How will they fare on their fourth, I wonder?!)
This is a mixture of very original interpretations of music from all over this planet, and songs that are composed by Pink Martini. Even the new compostitions sound like they've been around all the time - they have that classic, evergreen atmosphere about them.
Pink Martini do not have one single banal note in their musical bones - everything is fresh and surprising and there's a lot of humour in here as well - the quirky selection of tunes alone will make you smile. Pink Martini's knowledge of music is so beautifully in harmony with their love of it.
An absoultely outstanding climax is China Forbes' duet with Jimmy Scott in a hitherto unsurpassed version of Tea for Two - sexy, slow, sweet and moving. Tea for Two never sounded better and it's a proposition you can't turn down!
It's amazing to me that Pink Martini manages to create an evenly balanced whole out of melodies of such different character and culture - but they do. What a great cocktail.
Please buy this album. It will be a lovely reminder to you of the summer of '07 :0)
