It's Friday!! Samba, Calypso, Jazz ......Cocktail Music Time!

Drums ( Brazil)
I know, this happens to everyone...well almost everyone.. you are hosting a cocktail party and at the last minute you have no music.... "cocktail" music. I have loads of choices at home but sometimes I want something that is quintessentially "cocktail" party music, you know that sound..... a jazz, Latin, fusion with smoky voiced singers floating in the background. The sounds of maracas, drums.... it conjures up images of canapes, The South of France, Ipanema, and drinks with cherries and oranges.
Here are some amazing picks for music at your next shindig!
