ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There's only one theremin lounge band, and that's Project: Pimento!

Get out your cocktail shakers and prepare to party in sophisticated style! Project: Pimento is a five-piece band from San Francisco, with a repertoire of toe-tapping lounge favorites from the 40s, 50s, and 60s...all with a space-age twist!

Project: Pimento features the smoothly seductive vocal stylings of the lovely and talented Miss Lola Bombay. Lola, the alter ego of jazz vocalist Lori Carsillo, brings a silky, irresistable sound to the mix...like the olive in your martini! Guitarist Absolute Michael, stand-up bassist Makers Mark, and drummer Top-Shelf Rich are all key ingredients to the band's all-star lineup. And the CD also features a special guest appearance by the noted San Francisco Hammond organ player Nick "Martini and" Rossi.

Project: Pimento also features the smooth sounds of Robby Virus on the theremin. Invented in the 1920s, the theremin was the world's first electronic instrument. The theremin is notoriously difficult to master, since one must "play" the air around it without actually touching the instrument itself. Dr. Virus is one of the world's few theremin virtuosos, and conjures up high-class, jet-set elegance with his smooth melodies.

With a shaker full of swank tunes, and a rhythm section that will drink any flaming cocktail you put in front of them, Project: Pimento promises hi-fi-hi-jinks for all!!

perfect martini accessory
having seen this band live, i knew what to expect. this cd is a must have for anyone who craves a sound that is as appropriate for a cocktail party as it is for motoring out to palm springs for the weekend. you will not be disappointed.

Just love that theremin
It used to be a hightlight of my time in SF when I got to see the lovely Lola Bombay slinking across the stage as Project Pimento played Peter Gunn. I love this stuff, they are great... If you like lounge music or you have wondered about the weird music at the end of the original Star Trek then buy this.. it is kitsch, it is cool...

Stephen

Interesting album - could do with more tempo variation
This is a nice, interesting album with some goods songs and excellent performances. The only reason this did not receive 5 stars is the tempo; I felt a little more variety and the tracks "Star Trek" and "Black Magic Woman" would have benefited from a really slow, sleazy pace.

roger merrick

shaken and stirred
theremin, lounge, sophistcated, exotica, and the star trek theme. ya gotta hav it

Jeff S.

A welcome and fun addition to any theremin lovers collection!
The mix of lounge and theremin is a match made in heaven! Magical Moods is a fine collection of well done remakes of classic tunes joined with a theremin competently played. This is a must have for every theremin or lounge enthusiast!

Thank You Project: Pimento
This is the best thing I have heard since I care to remember, these guy's really know what lounge, if that's what you want to label it as, is about. They have made all the great songs on this record their own and given them a total new lease of life. Can't wait for the next one.

good music, good theremon playing
Being in the other only theremin lounge band, I always enjoy hearing theremin in a louge setting. This is a great cd with some fine theremin playing. The rest of the band ain't no slouches ether. I'm only focusing on the theremin, because thats what i play.
