Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

The daughter of two professional musicians, Anandi began her career as a singer-songwriter, recording three albums of original songs. Her funk-rock tune “Enough of You” has received more than 3 million hits on YouTube and other songs have been used on television spots and in commercials.

In the early 2000’s Anandi made a decision to turn from the Americana style to jazz. With a reverence for the great jazz singers, such as Sarah Vaughn and Carmen McRae, she set out to sing the more complex melodies and moods of jazz standards. In doing so she has gathered around her some of the best of Portland’s jazz musicians such as pianist Randy Porter and guitarist John Stowell.

Anandi’s longtime study of Buddhism and meditation (she herself a meditation teacher and proprietor of Karuna Contemplative Living) has made a mark on her music. Never speedy or frantic, she takes her time and draws you into her world. Listening to Anandi sing leaves you with a calm and open feeling, a sense of appreciation for every note.

Over the years Anandi has established a strong following in Portland, singing at the Rose Festival and the PDX Jazz Festival, appearing at Jimmy Mak’s and the Heathman Hotel, and producing her bi-annual concert at Classic Pianos. Jazz fans delight in Anandi’s full spectrum repertoire. In the words of Oregon Jazz Society critic George Fendel “Anandi continues to impress as a singer to be recognized and admired.” In addition to her beautiful renditions of jazz classics and provocative arrangements of well known pop tunes, Anandi will perform a set of original music for her September outing at Classic Pianos. Check out her take of the classic "Unchained Melody" on itunes.

Anandi’s sixth album (and third jazz recording) features Mike Horsfall on piano, Dave Captein on bass and Charlie Doggett on drums. She will also be joined by guitarist Dan Balmer and singer Haley Horsfall at Classic Pianos.

Classic Pianos is located at 3003 SE Milwaukie Ave, 503.239-9969. Admission is $15/advance ($20/door), and doors open at 6:30, show at 7pm. Find out more at www.anandi.com
