During Cocktail Week, you are probably wondering what music to listen to as you sip and nosh. Allow me share with you my fave cocktail music. Of course, the first attraction was the name. I love anything pink and I love martinis so you can guess that I would be attracted to a group named
"p i n k m a r t i n i."
Pink Martini has a global sophisticated sound that will encourage relaxation and conversation. Here's a good review of their first album, Sympathique. We also have their newer CD, Hang On Little Tomato. I cannot decide which I like better.
PM is described on their web site as "Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brasilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini."
Luckily, you can listen to both albums in their entirety on the
p i n k m a r t i n i website. Try before you buy.
Pour your favorite cocktail, relax and have a listen.
