Martinis With Mancini

An offbeat sampler, titled to take advantage of the lounge music thing. It has a lot of cool music that you won't find on typical Mancini compilations. A combo of alternative versions of old standards and obscurities, mostly in the latin vein, it's well-suited for cocktails and light conversation. Not necessarily the hits this shows more of Mancini's genius, and gives you a good sense of the depth of his work. With 20 cuts, the price is right, unless you have all those original LPs & want to make your own tape. Ha.
