This is wonderful record. I loved the Charlie Brown... but specially the Concerto # 1 so well and smoothly integrated in the middle of song 3!

What a marvel Pink Martini is. What a variety of elevated songwriting, instruments, pace, musical layering, language, voices, verve. This CD is a huge group hug to musical possibility, to the tip of the creative iceberg that beckons one to slide the rest of a long, glorious way down. Here Pink Martini gets back into the overall album style that marked their 1st and best CD oh so many years ago - a variety of voices, a thorough treatment of musical styles, a defined yearning and some wonderful instrumentals. How they combine the sounds from a 13-member crew with guest artists is one of the best things going on in music anywhere the world. The singing throughout is both warm and powerful. Also incredible is how they mix remakes of superb songs from The Carpenters, Franz Schubert, etc. with their own creations and continue the same level of quality. Pink Martini pulls it off without the blink of one of China Forbes's lovely eyes, without a missed note from Thomas Lauderdale's flowing piano work. What the music begs for is a little more depth and variety of emotion - and flair. They get it right with songs like "And Then You're Gone", but it's suspiciously missing in other pieces, like in the instrument solos in the middle of "But Now I'm Back". This amazing music should have not one ounce of blasé. Songs like Angelique Kidjo's "Mutoto Kwanza" show the heights to which Pink Martini could reach. They are only a few of steps from the summit. I am one music lover who is so grateful that these guys headquarter themselves in Portland, OR. We have the country's biggest bookstore (Powell's), the country's biggest city part (Forest Park), the best public transportation...the list goes on and on. We also have the best music, live or recorded. It doesn't get more splendid than Pink Martini.

You can't go wrong with Pink Martini. Fun and gratifying music. Tends to be more popular in foreign countries, though that speaks more to America's limited "music" tastes/judgment.
