Biography

Pink Martini & Saori Yuki - 1969
Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini.
Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based 'little orchestra' was created in 1994 by Harvard graduate and classically trained pianist Thomas M. ... Read more in Amazon's Pink Martini Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal 10 Jun 2007
By mettest
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first Pink Martini was good; the second was better - but this, their third, is best! (How will they fare on their fourth, I wonder?!)
This is a mixture of very original interpretations of music from all over this planet, and songs that are composed by Pink Martini. Even the new compostitions sound like they've been around all the time - they have that classic, evergreen atmosphere about them.
Pink Martini do not have one single banal note in their musical bones - everything is fresh and surprising and there's a lot of humour in here as well - the quirky selection of tunes alone will make you smile. Pink Martini's knowledge of music is so beautifully in harmony with their love of it.
An absoultely outstanding climax is China Forbes' duet with Jimmy Scott in a hitherto unsurpassed version of Tea for Two - sexy, slow, sweet and moving. Tea for Two never sounded better and it's a proposition you can't turn down!
It's amazing to me that Pink Martini manages to create an evenly balanced whole out of melodies of such different character and culture - but they do. What a great cocktail.
Please buy this album. It will be a lovely reminder to you of the summer of '07 :0)

5.0 out of 5 stars Drunk on Pink Martini 12 July 2007
By Teej
Format:Audio CD
Pink martini are back with their third and in my view best album to date. Three albums on and they are still as original and innovative as their debut.
From start to end the album keeps you completely hypnotised under the magic on China Forbes's vocals.
The standout tracks from me have to be Hey Eugene!, Dosvedanya Mio Bombino and Syracuse.
They continue there trademark theme of singing in various languages. Even trying Arabic this time on the track Bukra wba'do which works so well with the Pink Martini spin.
Everyone needs a Pink Martini album in their life it just lifts you and takes to those gorgeous places of your imagination you never want to leave.

By Chris
Format:Audio CD
Delivered with sultry grace by lead singer China Forbes, Hey Eugene! shines throughout--from the golden-era Hollywood melody of "Everywhere" to the French cabaret of "Ojala." The pan-world "Dosvedanya, Mio Bombino" with its Latin-meets-Russian beat and globetrotting subject matter, plus the sexy sway of "City of Night." the romantically complex "Mar Desconocido" and quiet beauty of "Cante e Dance." The group also mines the past for hidden gems, including the Japanese-language track "Taya Tan" and their first-ever recording in Arabic, "Bukra wba'do." Meanwhile, clever lyricism leads to an empowering dose of pop perfection on the title track by Forbes (about a boy she met at a party who asked for her number and never called). Finally, jazz legend Jimmy Scott makes a stunning vocal guest appearance in a duet with Forbes on the closing song "Tea for Two."

With Hey Eugene! Pink Martini has returned with an exhilarating album full of uncompromising musicianship, hope, beauty, and joy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just sublime ..... 7 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pink Martini have performed most of their new album at their live shows over the last year and, as always, they are innovative, sexy, classy and simply sublime.
The evocative and individual Ms Forbes continues to delight the wonderfully diverse fan base ~ from the gay salsa couples, the guy in the tribly hat to my own 9 year old daughter who, at the Tower of London concert last summer presented her with a bouquet of roses (bought with her own pocket money) and was rewarded with a photo opportunity backstage.
Yes, I have to report that the members of this 'little orchestra' are as delightful as they are talented, endlessly patient and polite to their adoring fans.
Cannot wait to get their latest offering into my CD player.
I have heard 'Hey Eugene' played lately on national radio in the UK ~ and not before time.
Buy it and, if you don't yet have them, buy their other two albums.
Relax.
Enjoy.
Your summer will be complete!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic music... 10 Aug 2007
By Roger
Format:Audio CD
I loved the first album very much... and this one doesnt disappoint one bit... I think everyone in the world should brace Pink Martini's music as the soundtrack of their lifes, as it really does provide a global perspective of music!!

This album, and the first album, Sympathique really makes me feel proud to be a citizen of the world and enjoy such a rich diversity of musical culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Week 25 April 2007
By tim
Format:Audio CD
Portlands finest dozen are back with another twelve songs. Lyrically and musically, it's all rather like seeing the past in silhouette and filling it with your own imagined vivid colours - take the elevator to the celestial lounge, pour a large one and wah away your woes with Pink Martini. The soul vibe of the title track is particularly outstanding

5.0 out of 5 stars A great mix of style and talent 29 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard the single hang on little tomatoe on f-tv back in 2005. It was only a few seconds. I found the music so different and yet so comforting at the same time. Once I'd tagged the song and brought the same titled album, I went to their concert. The live performance was breath taking with the unforgetable china forbes and the overall passion of Pink Martini. I soon brought Sympathique and went to another concert of theirs. I found myself longing for the next album which I must say hasn't come a moment too soon. From the few songs I heard at their recent live performance at the appollo, it sounds like another great album! A definate must buy!

Pink Martini - Hey Eugene (Heinz / Wrasse)
This is good - like a loungey, slightly tipsy, `60s pop version of Amy Winehouse. Read more
