      EVENT DETAILS
      KATHLEEN SAADAT

      with WITH THOMAS LAUDERDALE AND CHINA FORBES
      Radical fighter for justice Kathleen Saadat has been on the front lines of political activism in Portland, Oregon, since graduating from Reed College in 1974. But Pink Martinis bandleader Thomas Lauderdale, who became friends with Saadat during his days toying with a career in politics before the ascension of his little orchestra Pink Martini, knew a secret about her: she was an extraordinary singer.Never having sung in public before, Saadat began dropping by Pink Martini Headquarters for casual sessions around Thomass piano, and as he realized more and more the strength of her musical gift, he hatched a plan to record an album of jazz standards featuring Saadats rich lead vocals.Love for Sale is the result of this six-year project. Gathering members of Pink Martini to act as Saadats backing band, and anchoring the project from his piano, Lauderdale curated and arranged this ten-song album of favorite standards, and the result is a nostalgic and elegant album, a showcase of an undiscovered talent and a timeless tribute to the golden age of American song.

      Cost: 22.00
