Pink Martini is comprised of a 12-piece ensemble whose music is cosmopolitan, contagious and often difficult to categorize. The group suggests its style lies somewhere between 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band and Japanese film noir. Founding member and bandleader Thomas Lauderdale considers Pink Martini “musical archaeologists bringing melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world to create something that is modern.” He added that the multitalented and multilingual band offers “an urban musical travelogue … demonstrating that Americans are indeed serious about engaging in a dialogue with the rest of the world.”
In the absence of the band’s regular singer China Forbes, who is currently recovering from throat surgery, Pink Martini and band leader/pianist Thomas Lauderdale will feature world renowned guest singer Storm Large. “With the sexiness of a lounge singer and the pipes of someone who wouldn’t be out of place at the Met, Large is the perfect leader-cum-pinup girl for Pink Martini,” wrote the Cape Cod Times.
