ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The enchanting ukulele chanteuse, Janet Klein and her intriguing gentlemen pals, the Parlor Boys, perform 23 Late Ragtime and Early Jazz-Age tunes as well as 1920s jazz-styled Hawaiian numbers and French and Amercian speakeasy songs.

Sweet and sexy like a classic showgirl, evoking the vamps of the silent era, Janet Klein coos gloriously sweet numbers such as "You're A Heavenly Thing" and "Cooking Breakfast For the One I Love" and flirts and teases with naughty songs such as " The Physician","Nasty Man" and "I'm No Angel".

Janet's own unique vocal style reflects the old-fashioned sweetness and charm of bygone singers like Ruth Etting, Josephine Baker, Lil Armstrong and Mae West.

Among the Parlor Boys are two alumni of R.Crumb's band "The Cheap Suit Serenaders", Tom Marion, on guitar, mandolin and banjo, and Robert Armstrong, on Hawaiian steel guitar, accordion and saw, as well as recording and radio personality Ian Whitcomb, on ukulele and accordion, composer, band-leader and music historian Brad Kay, on ragtime style piano and cornet, and John Reynolds, on guitar and whistling(grandson of Zasou Pitts).

Janet has managed to charm these time-warped musicians into her parlor and out on the town, performing regularly for audiences in Los Angeles and Northern California.

Also an alluring treat is the CD packaging itself, chockfull of period photographs and ephemera from Janet's collection.

Dawn

An absolute delight
Charming, fun, naughty and nice! Top-drawer musicians all. The renditions infuse new life and personality into these old gems while remaining faithful to the tradition and spirit of the original. Such a joy.

Warren B. Conner, Jr.

Makes me wish to have lived in an earlier era……
Great music and Heavenly voice, better then Prozac for
lifting the Spirits………

Louis Chernovsky

I love it.
This was my first Janet Klein album, but most likely not my last. I love this album. I have been listening to it non-stop for about a week and a half now. Definately worth getting for anyone who likes music.

Nora O'connor

loved it!
We loved it! We sang and danced and now my roommates want it too! A lot of fun! Thank You! I'm so glad i heard this cd playing in a shop in new orleans so that i could discover it and enjoy it myself!
I'm raving! To die for.....

Volpone

Unusual but good
If you're looking for something that's different but well done and a lot of fun in the bargain, buy this CD. The songs are strong on variety with instruments that we don't hear much any more. Janet has a perfect voice for this kind of music with a bit of naughtiness mixed in with her innocence. If you're a fan of great double entendre lyrics there are plenty of those as well. It will bring a smile to your face.

Mary Chapel

Sings to My Old Soul!
I must be channeling my inner flapper because I love every song on this CD. Great to sing along. Yipee!

Squish

Yes, more Janet!
I can't get enough of Janet. Don't know what I'm going to do now that I have all four. This one offers excellent percussion/vibes, whistling, and musical saw.

Moadster

Everything old is new again (and even better)
What style! What charm! This CD will take you time-traveling back to an era when songs were clever, melodic and just a tad naughty, and girl singers could REALLY sing.

Another Wonderful CD from Janet & Boys
Janet shines on such greats as Shine, Any Kind-A-Man, Nasty Man, Paradise Wobble, & Clip Joint. These songs are reminiscent of the authentic style used by Leon Redbone in another genre. They're not overdone, they have a real feel for the music & period, & the playing & singing are wonderful.

Just the thing to lighten your mood!
Paradise Wobble captures the real spirit of the 20s and 30s in a collection of music that will lift your spirits after a bad day. Not only is the music fun to listen to, but the photos and artwork are great to leave lying around on your coffee table for guests to enjoy! Worth every penny!
