Pink Martini's concert on FRI, DEC 3 will be broadcast live as part of Fridays Live, available to all SFJAZZ Members.

Pound for pound, no other band does what Pink Martini does. With the combined power of a dozen musicians, the self-described “little orchestra” performs a rollicking cross-genre mix of classical, jazz, and old-fashioned pop The Washington Post called “rich, hugely approachable, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious... it seems to speak to just about everybody.”

The return with their infectiously joyous, dance-friendly takes on classic holiday music to make your season swing, as captured on their 2010 release Joy to the World.

Formed in 1994 by pianist Thomas Lauderdale in Portland, Oregon, the group has built a monstrous fan base through performances in settings ranging from the Cannes Film Festival and the Grand Opening of Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall, to late night television with David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, and Jools Holland and even a video greeting to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Fronted by a pair of dynamic vocalists, China Forbes and Storm Large, Pink Martini has performed with over 50 of the world’s great orchestras and released 16 albums on Lauderdale’s own Heinz imprint, most recently EPs recorded in conjunction with Portland pianist/singer Jimmie Herrod and vocalist Edna Vazquez.
