Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ERIN MCKEOWN

Sing You Sinners, 2007

2007-01-12

Folk/pop songstress Erin McKeown delivers a great, out-of-leftfield set of jazz standards with a four-piece combo (guitar, keyboards, bass, drums). What makes this work is her hip delivery of the lyrics and some excellently obscure song choices to go along with more recognizable tunes. You get Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer here, but you also get the organ-buzz of the title track, an unexpected reading of "Paper Moon" and the gems "I was a Little Too Lonely" and "Rhode Island is Famous for You" (my favorite of the set). An "A" for her jazz music thesis. 01/07 MJVD J-Roots
