Easy listening with a twist!,
This review is from: 1969 (Audio CD)Cd player 'In early 2010, as Pink Martini was preparing for their first tour of Asia, they received a call from Yuki's manager saying that she had loved the band's rendition of "Taya Tan" and wanted to meet them when they came to Japan. This first meeting occurred in Tokyo when Yuki joined Pink Martini singer China Forbes on stage for a rendition of "Taya Tan." Later that year Yuki was invited to sing the first-ever Japanese version of "White Christmas" for Pink Martini's holiday album Joy to The World.
Following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan earlier this year, Lauderdale invited Yuki to come to Portland to sing at a benefit at the same time, she and PM recorded "Yuuzuki," which was released by Starbucks to add to the Japan benefit. This collaboration led to the new album.'
It is quite brilliant and a lovely twist on the hugely popular Pink Martini theme of around the world easy listening . Classy and ageless. A lovely album.
