PINK MARTINI TO RELEASE TWO COLLABORATIVE EPS ON OCTOBER 4: BÉSAME MUCHO WITH EDNA VAZQUEZ AND TOMORROW WITH JIMMIE HERROD
Beloved Oregon-based “little orchestra” Pink Martini will release two new 5-song studio EPs on October 4 via Heinz Records featuring fan-favorite collaborators: Bésame Mucho with Edna Vazquez and Tomorrow with Jimmie Herrod.
Vazquez and Herrod are the two newest members of Pink Martini and have been touring regularly with the band since late 2017. As featured guest singers, their contributions have been warmly received by Pink Martini fans. Bandleader Thomas Lauderdale conceived of and co-produced this double EP release as a way to showcase his enthusiasm for these new musical collaborations.
Additionally, debuting today are the new singles “Sola Soy” and “Tomorrow,” which appear on Bésame Mucho and Tomorrow, respectively. Vazquez’s “Sola Soy” is an original showpiece with a broad emotional range that brings out Pink Martini’s soulful rock side. “Tomorrow” is Herrod’s cover of the hit song from the musical Annie, in an arrangement by Lauderdale.
