Lynch’s debut (released Sept 2009) with an album full of songs featured on Warner Brothers cartoons. It’s old jazz with some rag time and swing numbers, Instrumentation of guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, accordion, ukelele, and a musical saw. Lynch’s vocal is beautiful - fragile yet strong, sounding like, maybe, Janet Klein. You’ll surely dig this if you like Klein or Leon Redbone. Featuring R. Crumb’s Cheap Suit Serenaders’ Tony Marcus and Robert Armstrong. GREAT STUFF all the way through. No FCC’s.|
