There's only one theremin lounge band, and that's Project: Pimento! San Franciscoâ€™s finest lounge-tenders mix up a passionate elixir of rhythmic suavity set to sound. Sultry female vocals are backed up by a tight jazz combo, including a smooth theremin that takes the mood from the early â€˜60s to outer space. Fogged in velvet, hopped on hep, and buying this round.
Project: Pimento returns with their long-awaited follow-up to their debut CD â€œMagical Moods of the Thereminâ€. This new CD, â€œSpace Age Love Songsâ€, contains 14 songs from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, reinterpreted for 21st century hipsters, hep-cats, and swingers everywhere.
Project: Pimento features the theremin playing of Dr. Robby Virus. As the only instrument that is played without actually touching the instrument, the theremin is notoriously difficult to play, but Dr. Virus tames this musical beast with a hand wave and a martini. Project: Pimento also features the sultry voice of Lola Bombay, alter-ego of noted jazz vocalist Lori Carsillo. The Project: Pimento sound is rounded out by the talent-laden and devastatingly handsome lineup of Gentleman Jack (guitar), Aaron Wallbanger (drums), and Baron Karl von Stoli (bass). Special guest organist Wil Blades also performs on â€œSpace Age Love Songsâ€.
