The press release for Pink Martinis upcoming performance in Scottsdale has this to say about the 12-piece ensemble from (where else?) Portland, Oregon: a cross between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band, and Japanese film noir. Well, that just about covers the globe, though wed love if it if the band could squeeze in some pan-African polyrhythms and field recordings of glaciers in Antarctica. Kidding.
