In 1962 Martin left his record company Capitol and signed with Frank Sinatra's new label Reprise.

His debut album "French Style" was released in April of the same year. Martin had released an album of songs sung in Italian shortly before and was planning to record an album of Latino material at the end of the same year. "French Style" was sandwiched between these two albums and featured a series of songs about France, skillfully arranged by conductor Neal Hefti. At the time, France must have seemed incredibly glamorous, with Brigitte Bardot hanging out in St. Tropez while Grace Kelly raced her sports car over the cliffs of Cannes in Hitchcock's "To Catch A Thief." Beatniks filled the jazz cafes where the New Wave of French cinema was discussed over disques bleu and lattes.

Besides, the majority of the songs in this collection revolve around Paris - and the City of Lights has been a magnet for Americans since the days when Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Cole Porter settled there. So bon appetit!
