CD: Southside Johnny - Grapefruit Moon: The Songs of Tom Waits
|Quantity in Basket:none|
Shipping Weight: 0.25 pounds
|Southside's tribute to one of his favorite songwriters, but also a pet sound: big band music. The idea to marry the brassy, ballsy sound of a big band to Tom Waits' cinematic, character-driven songs has been sitting in the back of Southside's mind for sometime. He's talked about the project for years, and it's finally a reality: Grapefruit Moon album features Southside's take on 12 songs written by Tom Waits and his wife Kathleen Brennan. Part of the reason it took so long is that it was a huge undertaking -- Southside is backed here by LaBamba's Big Band, and LaBamba truly outdid himself on these massive arrangements.
Tom Waits himself guests on one track, dueting with Johnny on "Walk Away," their vocals recorded together at a California studio. Otherwise, the sessions took place in New York and New Jersey in 2005 and 2006, with numerous horn players and musicians including Jerry Vivino, Eddie Manion, Art Baron, Mark Pender, Mike Spengler, Jeff Kazee, Charlie Giordano, Shawn Pelton, Bobby Bandiera and more.
The vocals of the South, the big band arrangements of LaBamba, the songs of Tom WaitsÉ an ambitious project, brilliantly executed, and well worth the wait.
12 tracks in all -- and no, "Jersey Girl" ain't on it. But you won't miss it.
