Having recently bought Jungle Blues by C W I felt bound to try some more of his off centre musical offerings. That unique line up of banjo and brass is enough to stir anyone with a serious interest in the 'old' music despite it being very contemporary. In particular I love his rendition of 'Don't go dancing at the Darktown Strutters Ball'. There are also a few tracks of comedic content and the female voice adds greatly to the fake old style settings. He deserves wider recognition as an innovator working from the past.
Having now bought all three of C.Ws albums I am looking forward to the next three. He is unique and in an eclectic genre of his own. From the first time you here him it's a constant pleasure especially with his asides and storytelling quips. Truly an eccentric to be compared with Tom Waits,Dan Hicks and Screamin Jay Hawkins. Give yourself a treat.
I heard this artist in the living room of a good friend. WAAAAAWWWWW !!!!!! This is GREAT !!!!!! Old blues, calypso, Tom Waits, Leon Redbone, country, ... All this beautiful music, this beautiful artists, together in ONE record. Great !!!!!! Marvelous. Five stars means I love it but I should say more than that: I'm willing to do a murder for this artist. Absolutely a must have.
