5.0 out of 5 stars Why are they such a secret? This group is STELLAR!, November 11, 2004
This review is from: Hang On Little Tomato (Audio CD)
There's no doubt about it: Pink Martini, the "little orchestra," is indeed one of the best kept secrets around--and I can't understand why! I myself only stumbled over them while browsing the Amazon web site. I listened to a few sound clips on my computer--and immediately ordered this CD! I was not the slightest bit disappointed in this CD; I was amazed at their talent and natural giftedness!

In Hang On Little Tomato, the second CD put out by a group called Pink Martini, there is a stunning and beautiful diversity of songs. I strongly agree with the reviewer who writes that "you can't lock this group into one category." The CD starts out with the very strong "Let's Never Stop Falling In Love" sung by China Forbes with a beautiful arrangement. There's the Croatian song "U Plavu Zoru" about a love that will not be. French love song aficionados get a real treat with the two songs "Dansez-Vous" and "Autrefois." There's a great Spanish song (in regular Spanish, not Castilian) called "Anna (El Negro Zumbon)." I loved it! The Italian love song "Una Notte A Napoli" is exquisitely performed. There's also a Japanese song lamenting a night of passion that can never blossom into a full love affair, "Kikuchiyo To Mohshimasu."

There is a singular beauty to this song set that is rarely surpassed; their talent is undeniable and very dynamic. Moreover, this CD is extremely romantic. I agree with the reviewer who writes that this is the perfect CD to play when making love! Regardless of what's going on, or even if you're just hanging out with no agenda on a lazy afternoon, this CD is perfect for you!

The CD packaging is superlative as well! There are numerous terrific photos of the group members in black and white that literally and figuratively gave a face to this awesome group of performers! There's even a photograph of Heinz, the barking dog! GRIN Full lyrics and credits are included along with extensive thanks to the many people and family members who helped Pink Martini produce this CD.

To be blunt, you need this CD! It is a terrific song set (with an ending instrumental) that will impress you beyond your expectations! I can only hope to see them perform live in the very near future and PLEASE, Pink Martini, wherever you are--PUT OUT YOUR NEXT CD! GRIN
