Hang On Little Tomato, Pink Martini’s second album, is an exquisite, exotic collection of wondrous music. Think Buena Vista Social Club, Chet Baker, Yma Sumac, the loungey swing of Combustible Edison and Juan Esquivel. These names are mere touchstones for a group that is rethinking the concept of musical multiculturalism. Hang On Little Tomato, is more than a reworking of the band’s influences; it is a voice of musical sophistication filled with fun, tenderness and musical virtuosity.
Songs like “Clementine,” “Let’s Never Stop Falling In Love,” “Anna,” and “Lilly,” evoke a sound and vision that transports the listener to a thoroughly modern world. Hang On Little Tomato, is a wonderful, wide-eyed musical experience.
