RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2018

• Expanded edition of ‘Latin For Lovers’, a celebration of the finest romantic songs to come out of Latin America.

• Includes songs by the pioneer of bossa-nova – Antonio Carlos Jobim – whose music had proven extremely popular at the time for non-Latin artists like Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.

• The complete album is included in both Stereo and Mono and a third bonus disc includes other Latin-influenced tracks from Doris Day’s recording career plus a compendium of A&B sides that were recorded and released between the ‘Latin For Lovers’ album and the end of her recording career with Columbia in 1967.

Throughout ‘Latin For Lovers’, Doris delivers a supremely evocative and intimate vocal performance, her voice cushioned on a sensuous blend of violins and guitars, with the darkly inviting tones of an alto flute in wonderful arrangements by Mort Gamson.

Featuring the soaring ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, originally written in 1954 as ‘In Other Words’, the foot-tapping ‘Dansero’, written by harmonica virtuoso and conductor, Richard Hayman and Doris’s urgent rendition of ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps’, on which a trumpet makes the rhythm shine with all the more lustrous glow! Doris’s celebrated version of this Latin classic enjoyed a new wave of popularity in the early 1990s in its inclusion by film director Baz Lurhmann in his romantic comedy hit film Strictly Ballroom.
