Upcoming Album Release: Pink Martini/ 'Get Happy'

One of my favourite acts, Portland's hottest, eclectic, internationally known "small orchestra", Pink Martini's new album 'Get Happy' is set for release on 24th September 2013!!!
In addition to the appearance of the lead singer of the band, China Forbes and their co-lead vocalist Storm Large, 'Get Happy' features special guests such as Rufus Wainwright, French eccentric Philippe Katherine, Australian cabaret sensation Meow Meow, Ari Shapiro and The Von Trapps.
Including 16 songs (performed in French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Farsi, Turkish and Romanian) selected and arranged by Thomas M. Lauderdale (the main musician, piano player and founder of the band), the album opens with Pink Martini's version of Charlie Chaplin's 'Smile', last year's recording featuring American actress, comedienne and stage persona, Phyllis Diller (unfortunately, she passed away on August 2012, so this track turned out to be her final recording).
'Get Happy' follows Pink Martini's previous album 'Splendor in the Grass' released in 2009.
