Modern Songbook, 2012

LOUNGE – This DC/Baltimore area band has a cool retro sound, but most of the tunes here are original (by guitarist Charlie Barnett), and they’re all quite good. The quintet is tight and solidly jazzy, vocalist Marilyn Older has a really appealing delivery and the tunes are darned clever. All have vocals, all FCC clean.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10

1. 4:30 – echoing late-nite vibe with great lyrics and a cool horn duo break
2. 3:00 – cute little samba bounce, catchy but quirky
3. 3:38 – catchy thumping 2-beat groove: good voc & quick round of solos
4. 3:46 – show tune exotica, just the right balance of cheese and cool. Love it!
5. 3:36 – happy roadhouse jump: a real toe-tapper with snappy lyrics
6. 4:42 – much more serious, torchy: just vocals & piano, about infidelity
7. 2:59 – bounce with a rockabilly touch: compares various “seismic shifts”
8. 3:12 – cute and romantic with acoustic guitar & dreamy sing-song melody
9. 5:37 – nifty swamp/cha-cha cover of Bobbie Gentry’s 1967 country megahit
10. 2:48 – jaunty midtempo Dixieland bounce with tuba and saucy vocal
11. 4:29 – relaxed, sort of a bossa nova; lyrics about an old slapstick comic
12. 3:26 – a “Wizard of Oz” tune as a samba? Sure, why not…
