Cocktail/Dinner

For the cocktail hour/dinner, we’d love a mix of jazzy swing/big band type songs (both classic ones from the 30s and 40s, and some of those 90s swing revival tunes), and some mambo/bossa nova/latin lounge songs from the 50s/60s. And we’d like to give dinner a bit of an international feel, so jazz/lounge songs in Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, French are welcome.
