Review

As it is with most nostalgia, each bygone era has its own allure. With the songs on VELVET MARTINI, the era evoked is one where men wore suits and ties, women wore dresses or gowns, and everyone tired to exude a modicum of dignified style and class. With Jeff Steinberg’s artful, affectionate arrangements of classic songs from the days of the big bands to the early 1960s, the ideal of such a shaken-not-stirred time period is just a bit closer to real.
