Księżniczka and I went to Binghamton Yesterday to see Pink Martini
play there with the philharmonic. It was a pretty great way to spend Valentine's. China Forbes, the singer, has a fantastic voice, and that being the case, "Amado Mio" and "Sympathique" sounded great. The newer song "Anna" which featured a duet of sorts between Forbes and vocalist/percussionist/smart dancer Timothy Nishimoto was my favorite, from a 1950s Italian film of the same name, the version in concert didn't seem like it would have been out of place on the Buena Vista Social Club
soundtrack. If you check out their webpage above you can listen to songs from both the first and new albums. Good stuff, but seeing them with a symphony orchestra is also recommended.
However, both K and I remarked on how we were the only two people in the audience under 40. As such, we were glad we dressed up. The guy next to me was rocking out (albeit not priapically). Happy Post V-Day.
