Sparkling Martini

Went to see world lounge act Pink Martini last night with Tony. I'd seen them once before in an indoor venue, and they were even better this time--despite the sultry temps and overcrowding picnic basketeers at Wolf Trap.

The song list--and, frankly, much of their between song patter--was a repeat, but the acoustics at Wolf Trap were amazing and lent a beautiful huskiness and depth to the sound: The tunes almost sounded new.

Highlights included the Bacharach-inspired Clementine and the swingy, lazy Hang on Little Tomato. Sadly, no Let's Never Stop Falling in Love. Sad because who would want to with a soundtrack like this?
