Event description

Description

Vocalist and songwriter, Anandi, will perform with her group, Anandi & Friends, on November 17th at Classic Pianos.

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.
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.”

Anandi produces her bi-annual concert at Classic Pianos. The upcoming concert will be an evening of mostly originals with a span of genres including folk, pop, funk and jazz. The evening will begin with the sounds of songwriter Rachel Brashear on piano and vocals. More about Rachel at her website -https://www.rachelbrashear.com/

“Consider Anandi…Her music sounds like your average coffee-shop folk stuff, right? Wrong.”-The Oregonian

“So many female singer-songwriters name Joni Mitchell as an influence…Anandi is one of the few with enough melodic flair to live up to the comparison. - The Boston Herald
