This is an excellent CD for anyone who loves Leon Redbone and blues music. The CD as a whole has that wonderful, entirely mellow mumble that is Leon Redbone's trademark sound. Every song on the CD is easy to listen to; my favorite on this CD is "At the Chocolate Bon Bon Ball" just for its silliness and sing-ability, but "Bittersweet Waltz" is my favorite to dance to. A good CD for anyone who's got the blues!

A Perennial Fave

"Some musicians are out there to keep traditional music alive. Ry Cooder springs to mind. He does it multiculturally, whereas Leon Redbone and Randy Newman stick pretty close to Americana and the Hoagy Charmichael school of singer. I love the old stuff. It's just such a serendipitous/smooth/Moonlight on the Wabash Old School sorta thing! Not too many of us were even born when these tunes were popularized, but like Harry Nilsson's "A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night" and Linda Rondstadt's great renditions of classic tunes, this recording is near landmark quality!

Great accompaniment from his backup band, as usual. Quality recording in every sense! Five stars easily!

Great CD!

"If you like Leon Redbone (who doesn't), add this one to your collection. I have listened to this CD hundreds of times and I never get sick of it. A must have for any jazz lover."
