Pink Martini For Pink Martinis

Want some tip-top tunes for the cocktail hour? Then buy or download Pink Martini’s new CD, “Splendor in the Grass.” The group’s influences are certainly eclectic — the Portland-based band found inspiration for two of its songs from an unlikely place: a sheet of music left on band member Thomas Lauderdale’s piano. Lauderdale, the band’s pianist, had a copy of Franz Schubert’s “Fantasy in F Minor for Piano Four-Hands” out when he was working with one of Pink Martini’s producers.
