Description

Need a fresh perspective on what it means to be an American? Take a lesson from Harvard grad and Pink Martini band leader Thomas M. Lauderdale, a guy whose music employs a veritable mixed drink (think Cosmopolitan) of sounds, resulting in a sort of international freeway where all the drivers speak different languages. The heterogeneous quality is, of course, the point. Lauderdale believes in a melting pot that swirls together sounds as well as cultures, with 1930s-era French jazz, Brazilian samba, and Middle Eastern raga as just a few of the 13-piece Pink Martini's choice ingredients. Their vocalist China Forbes is on an extended leave, undergoing surgery on her vocal cords, so for this show, which has them hooking up with the San Francisco Symphony, they'll be fronted by Lucy Woodward. - Aaron Carnes sanjose.com
