With the release of FLYING BY, the enigmatic Leon Redbone releases his first full album in over a decade.
The standard bearer of pre-World War II ragtime, jazz and blues sounds, the neo-Vaudville crooner serves up a blend of a dozen carefully picked nuggets including the traditional: "Police Dog blues," "I'll See You In My Dreams," and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home." Redbone brings the rarely heard Irving Berlin number "Where are You?" into the present shining a light on this rare gem.
With support from Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks and accompanist Paul Asaro, Leon Redbone reemerges with perhaps his most traditional album since his debut ON THE TRACK, from the era when he was lighting up Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and leading popular music fans to the music of a bygone era.
FLYING BY was produced by longtime producer Beryl Handler.
