Chic To Chic! - Nino Nanni

The Things I Want
Chic To Chic!
Nino Nanni
Recorded at Regent Sound Studios, New York City
Carlton Record Corporation
LP 12/108 & STLP 12/108

The word "STEREO" on the stereo issue was applied to the cover in manufacturing as a "felt" stick-on.

From the back cover: Other singers, too many singers, sing. Nino sells! At this point, however, let me dispel any vague notion you may be harboring that this is a Jazz album. Jazz-oriented, yes, Jazz only, no. Nino Nanni is a throughly fine cafe performer who has and does perform in the most chic boĆ®tes. He knows the taste of Cafe Society, but it has not limited his musicianship. – Jack Lazare

From Billboard - December 15, 1958: Nino Nanni has a distinctive sound in his rendition of these songs from hit show. He accompanies himself on piano, and he is nice paced  by a rhythm section. Stereo adds little. Numbers include "A Woman In Love" from "Guys And Dolls," " It's Love" from "Wonderful Town" and "Bewitched" from "Pal Joey."
