Pink Martini - Let's Never Stop Falling In Love

Portland Oregon band Pink Martini is a difficult band to categorize. They blend genres of music such as Latin, lounge, classical, and jazzand their music has often been described as "vintage music". Band Leader, Thomas Lauderdale describes the band's sound as "music of the world without being world music. It's kind of like urban symphonic crossed with Cuban/Brazilian street Carnival parade, Breakfast at Tiffany's/United Nations kind of thing." Ok, got that?

However you describe their music, it is a wonderful listen. Their music has appeared in several film such as Nurse Betty and Mr. & Mrs. Smith; television shows such as The Sopranos and The West Wing. Their music is even the background/setup music for Microsoft's Windows Server 2003.

They released their debut album, Sympathique, in 1997 on their own label, Heinz Records, and sold over 1.3 million copies. It took seven years to release their follow up, Hang On Little Tomato, which starts with the track Let's Never Stop Falling In Love.
