Dean Martin typified both the romance and seeming effortlessness of the early-1960s swinger. This collection of lushly orchestrated songs features Italian pop classics like 'There's No Tomorrow,' 'Arrivederci Roma,' 'Return to Me,' and the Latin-flavored 'Belle From Barcelona,' all performed with Martin's familiar relaxed intimacy and devil-may-care swagger. The sessions producing this album's songs were recorded between September 6 and September 8 of 1961. The backing orchestra was conducted and arranged by Gus Levene.

For those uninitiated into the world of Baroque or harpsichord music, be forewarned: this budget-priced trio of CDs from Archiv is a hefty amount of Bach on the harpsichord. These are reissues of recordings of Bach's greatest keyboard works made in the early '80s by Trevor Pinnock. While you may be able to listen to nearly four straight hours of Bach, some may find it hard to listen to the harpsichord for that long.

A virtuoso harpsichordist and organist, it is remarkable that J.S. Bach composed only one original work for keyboard and orchestra. The fifth Brandenburg Concerto, with its huge sixty-five bar cadenza in the first movement, created the blueprint for all piano concertos that followed. However, Bach the great arranger mined his other concertos to create seven more keyboard works (No.6, omitted here, is for keyboard, flutes and strings).
