Hot on the heels of 1999?s "Ivan in Paris" comes the first all-studio album from Chandler Travis in more than two decades, plus the debut of the world's only alternative dixieland band, the Chandler Travis Philharmonic. This reckless aggregation of disparate instruments (horns, mandocello, accordion, guitar, etc.) and ideas (gorgeous ballads, loopy lyrics, and all-out assaults on everything we know as pop) has been throwing New Englanders for serious loops for the last couple of years with a live show that Jim Macnie of the Village Voice says is "a keenly entertaining blend of the Ringling Bros. and Ra that puts the harm back in Philharmonic!" "Let's Have a Pancake" features some of Boston's best horn players, wonder drummer/Incredible Casual Rikki Bates, keyboardist Keith Spring (NRBQ, MARTIN MULL), and cameos from NRBQ's Terry Adams and Big Al Anderson.

"Wow!! This is indeed the most mainstream album they have put out to date. The Chandler Travis Philharmonic is one of the most creative, musical, funny and hardest working bands around, and this album is a mere glimpse at what they have to offer. If they are in your area GO!!!! You will get your moneys worth when you fill their tips bucket and be highly entertained. 'Got To Let Go Sometime' would make the best single release (as far as what is played on the Radio these days), as well as 'Nature Boy', 'This is Home', 'Stay Like That' and 'That's What She Said'. All of these songs have mixes of POP music styles, with influences you can hear from the Beatles, Kinks and Elvis Costello. The songwriting is truly original with many sides that can be: commiserate, funny, and instantly recognizable, and so are all the players, and the performances (when you catch them live.)"
