Cha Cha de Amor marked Martin’s final sessions for Capitol Records before switching to Frank Sinatra’s Reprise label. This curious LP was an attempt to take advantage of the craze for cha-cha music. It was Martin’s second album under the baton of Nelson Riddle, who must also have been itching to join Reprise (as he did by 1963). In any case, both artists turned in competent performances. Martin could sing as easily over charts filled with peppy horns and Latin percussion as he could over anything else, but the music did not especially move him, and the result was an odd coda to the Capitol years.
