Pink Martini: Self-Appointed U.N. House Band

Pink Martini founder/pianist Thomas Lauderdale described the band this way: “If the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.”

Fair enough, but after their visit to the KPLU studios for a live performance and interview with our All Things Considered host Ed Ronco, we feel strongly that they should be the house band for the planet from this day forward.  Their music is pan-global; their hearts are pure, and they make you want to dance.  So, why not?  Enjoy.
