Stir up a pitcher of martinis, grab your favorite snuggle bunny, and prepare to get happy. This delicious, dishy, delightful compilation is pure fun. A nice mix of US and international artists, all of whom know how to have a good time. One star each track! This is such a warm, joyful, sweet little thing I didn’t want it to end. Love it!|
1. Fun do-wop vocal harmonies & a happy, sophisticated little sway.
2. Finger snapping Mauritian Creole. Great harmonica & guitar bits.
3. Gypsy-jazzy guitar/violin w/fun vocals. Nice use of horns too.
4. Two jazz greats a great classic piano/scat sound. Oh so cool…
5. Great retro big band sound. If Glenn Miller had been Italian…
6. Trumpet-driven Ellington classic. Tight instrumental arrangement.
7. Relaxed Italian vocals, a 50s sound. Lazy fun.
8. Super-cool blend of vox/horn/guitar. Midtempo goodness from all.
9. Shades of Django. Guitar/violin/accordion. So French, so good.
10. Slack key swing, in a fun Hawaiian ode to surfing.
11. Rockin’ Cajun sound w/a classic 50s rock/swing sound.
12. Violin intro/scat vocals, a contemporary version of a classic.
