2013 release from the modern Exotica/Easy Listening outfit. In January 2012, Thomas Lauderdale and trusty audio engineer Dave Friedlander flew to Los Angeles to visit Thomas's new friend, Phyllis Diller. While there, they recorded Charlie Chaplin's 'Smile', which turned out to be Phyllis Diller's final recording, and became the soundtrack for the many tributes to her when she passed away six months later. Thus began the 18-month odyssey to record Get Happy, the long-awaited studio follow-up to 2009's Splendor in the Grass, an odyssey which featured a cavalcade of vocal royalty visiting their Portland studios, including exotic cabaret sensation Meow Meow, sunny French eccentric Philippe Katerine, the handsome and brilliant radio superstar Ari Shapiro, warm-hearted wunder-siblings The von Trapps, and a riveting appearance by the exquisite Rufus Wainwright! Anchored by our beloved and elegant vocalist China Forbes, alongside our dazzling co-lead-singer Storm Large, the album features 16 songs selected and arranged by Thomas. Suivant leur passage au festival international de Jazz de Montréal (deux soirs à guichets fermés ; plus de 7000 billets vendus!), le petit orchestre de Portland nous présente Get Happy, un nouvel album truffé de collaborations étonnantes. Le teaser dévoilé par le groupe nous révèle entre autres Rufus Wainwright et Philippe Katerine ! On y retrouve aussi la charmante chanteuse China Forbes, qui épaule l’extravagant pianiste Thomas Lauderdale et son grand groupe jazz.
