Burnside Album Details
Klein, Janet & Her Parlor Boys, Ready For You
Ready For You opens with a load of terrific swingy dance numbers by Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, a spirited singer and band that has put a spit shine and polish on its ensemble musicianship. These wonderfully robust tunes will set you jazzing for romance and hurly-burly speakeasy steppin’ out. The tunes roll into new stylistic water with steamy Riverboat shuffles and a hot southern style repertoire specifically designed for and being performed in intimate historic settings in the US. The CD has plenty of variety with obscure movie tunes, a load of sassy Dixie mania, novelties and jazz age tales of bad behavior all mixed with a yummy plate of down home fun. Three songs feature Janet singing duets and harmonies with Parlor Fellows- John Reynolds (grandson of 20’s 30’s movie star Zazu Pitts), Ian Whitcomb (music historian and 60’s pop star) and David Barlia (fellow ukulelian and eefing crooner). The CD is produced by Robert Loveless (of Scenic, 17 Pygmies & Savage Republic).
