Album Notes
SLEEPYTIME IN CHINATOWN features six original tunes written by Pete Krebs, David Langenes and the rest of the Stolen Sweets. Three of the originals {"Sleepytime in Chinatown", "Willie The Weeper, The Chinatown Creeper" and "Smokey Joe’s Holiday"} were inspired by the mystery and intrigue of Chinatown, along with Cab Calloway’s use of Chinatown as a backdrop for many of his most famous tunes. Some of Calloway’s most familiar characters appear on the record, making it somewhat of an homage -- and sequel -- to Calloway’s early yarns. The remaining tunes were inspired by 1930's radio stars The Boswell Sisters’ vocal arrangements and Django Reinhardt's gypsy jazz guitar style.

Check 'Em Out!
I used to play in a swing band, and love music from that era. If you do too, then definitely check out Stolen Sweets! I think they're great!

Editors Pick
Inspired by the vocal arrangements of the Boswell Sisters, Cab Calloway's narrative tunes, and Django Reinhardt's gypsy jazz guitar style, this Portland outfit reinvigorates the past by remembering to highlight something that most modern music has forgotten, a sense of fun!

Hal Davis

Fine, fine stuff
These folks do a superb job of emulating 1920s swing rhythms and harmonies. It will merge well with your Dan Hicks and Maria Muldaur collections.
