Don't think what you listen to has anything to do with been an audiophile.

This is more an area were people can post their favourite cd's and also for others to maybe go have a listen to some and see if they are to their taste.

I know at alot of GTG's i hear stuff i realy enjoy, stuff if i aw on the shelves i propably would never purchase.

Thanks for that John, it's nice to feel welcome :)

While i openly admit, i am no audiophile, i really do enjoy my music be it rock, jazz, instrumental.

And i certainly agree, i for one will definately be taking a few pointers on what to look out for or try.

Had it not been for someone on the forum posting a comment on some background music in a link i followed, i'd have never known who Diana krall was.... think i now own all her CDs. Love it !

Had it not been for surround sounds playing Diana's Live in Paris DVD I wouldn't have found her either. Have to find something else to listen to sometimes... the wife is starting to ask questions :D

Listened to When I Look in Your Eyes (DVD_A) and my favourite, Love Scenes last night. :wub:

John,a good place to start is Dead can dance, A passage in time.Catalogue cad1010cd.It's a compilation.The language that she sings in is made up by Lisa herself.They also did the soundtrack for Gladiator(oscar winner).Paul

RodN,

the Rodrigo Y Gabriella sounds interesting. I am tracking that album down. :rolleyes:

I got turned onto 'Pink Martini' from this forum a while back and think it is pretty cool. Are you aware they released a new album in May 07?

11.Dosvedanya Mio Bombino 4:41

12.Tea For Two 5:02

Pink Martini a 12-piece orchestra from Portland, Oregon,

are impossible to categorise. More like a collection of

bands, on the one hand they do easy-listening,

glamour-obsessed tunes that echo grand Hollywood musical

themes, on the other they tackle an astonishing array of

global styles in different languages. The latest set from

this most un-American of all-American groups is just as

diverse. It includes grand, romantic orchestral ballads,

of course, mixed with a Brazilian samba once recorded by

Carmen Miranda, alongside songs in Japanese, Arabic,

French and Spanish. It is all very clever and very

charming, and suggests that Pink Martini's versatile

singer, China Forbes, is capable of even more. Dosvedanya

Mio Bombino is an epic Russian-Italian ballad, Tea for Two

is a delightful duet with the veteran Jimmy Scott, while

the title track is an edgy, knowing, funk-edged piece that

makes Pink Martini even more difficult to pigeonhole.

mmmmm Saturday at home, listening to music,luxury B)

Cheers, treb

I've been listening to the new Pink Martini disk for a few weeks. Not bad, they have very much tried to reflect their little tomato success IMO which results in some nice lively tracks. Little Tomato is still my favourite though.

Enigma has been a fave for me since backpacking in 91 in Thailand - spent a couple of nights on the River Kwai on a houseboat with some israeli chicks who were into it. Haunting it was
