Splendor In The Grass

Pink Martini

"[A] wondrously eclectic tapestry of foreign textures, sounds, and cultures." -- Boston Globe

"This is rich, hugely approachable music, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious. And it seems to speak to just about everybody." -- Washington Post

"Ms. Forbes is an unpretentious, pitch-perfect chanteuse who can be breathy and girlish or sultry. She's ideal for songs that usually revolve around old-fashioned romance; she tempers heartbreak with savoir-faire." -- New York Times

Pink Martini's three previous albums have sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
Long-awaited fourth album features several songs in a classic Pink Martini style alongside excursions into 1970s, modernist minimalism, classic ranchera, and swing.
Partnering with high-powered NYC publicity firm Sacks & Co. (Björk, David Byrne, Buena Vista Social Club) to publicize Splendor in the Grass.
Famed Dandy Warhols guitarist and leader Courtney Taylor-Taylor appears on the title track.
