Peggy Lee, Latin Ala Lee! (1960)
The album’s subtitle tells you exactly what to expect: Broadway Hits Styled With An Afro-Cuban Beat – check out On The Street Where You Live – that should tell you all you need to know. I love Peggy Lee so was super-stoked to find this; a case of hearing about the album, reading about it, always keeping an eye out for it. (Well, I say that, but probably I’ve flicked past it and over it several times…) Anyway, yesterday I found it in the shop – it spoke to me (as it were). And now I have it on the turntable. And it’s singing. She’s singing. And it’s a glorious start to the day.
