With singer Storm Large
Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world – crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop – and hoping to appeal to conservatives and liberals alike, Thomas Lauderdale founded the “little orchestra” Pink Martini in 1994. Now featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America.
Pink Martini’s debut album Sympathique was released independently in 1997 on the band’s own label Heinz Records, and quickly became an international phenomenon, garnering the group nominations for “Song of the Year” and “Best New Artist” in France’s Victoires de la Musique Awards in 2000.
The band has collaborated and performed with numerous artists, including Jimmy Scott, Carol Channing, Jane Powell, and Rufus Wainwright, and has an illustrious roster of regular guest artists: NPR White House correspondent Ari Shapiro, Cantor Ida Rae, koto player Masumi Timson, harpist Maureen Love, and Kim Hastreiter (the publisher/editor-in-chief of Paper magazine).
