Dean Martin, Dino Latino
Martin and Lewis. The Rat Pack. Crooning sensation, movie and television star. Dean Martin's career in the spotlight, beginning in America's post-WWII years, was so varied and successful that he virtually came to define the notion of the larger-than-life "entertainment personality." By the early '60s, he was making records frequently, and this one came out in 1963, around the same time as others with titles like Italian Love Songs, Cha Cha de Amor, and French Style. So why not Dino Latino? His distinctively relaxed and mellow singing seems to fit the Latin groove of such songs as "Manana Is Soon Enough for Me," "South of the Border," and "Besame Mucho" especially well. There's even a Latin treatment of "Tangerine," all bongos and clave beat, that's especially pleasing. With both sweeping strings and brassy moments, it showcases Martin at the peak of his powers and feels, like almost everything he did, nearly effortless.
