ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Strap on your psychic seat belts and get ready for a whirlwind tour of Charles Murray's darkly comic, poetic amusement park vision of 21st Century America. With the September 2004 release of "What's Next?" Charles picks up right where he left off with 2002's "Ordinary Times". The artfully packaged "What's Next?" includes 19 original tracks that will leave you alternately chuckling, groaning and totally amazed. If you heard and liked "Ordinary" Times, we predict that you will love What's Next?

Charles possesses a bloodhound's nose for hypocrisy, mendacity and phoniness, combined with a detective's eye for the telling detail that defines character. "What's Next?" was mixed and mastered at Denver's noted Colorado Sound Recording Studios and the production values far exceed those of "Ordinary Times". The material is also more varied and even includes two underground masterpieces of the extended spoken word genre that Charles has been perfecting over the last two decades-"The Main Attraction" and "Carpet of Eternity". "What's Next?" is inhabited by a cornucopia of the rich and famous including Martha Stewart, Franz Kafka, Bill Clinton, Bela Lugosi, Rush Limbaugh, Manual Noriega and more.

Musically the 19 tracks run the gamut from bossa nova to rockabilly, swing to rock, Americana to Broadway-a rich amalgam of the many styles at Murray's ready command. He composes his tunes like a Swiss watchmaker with lots of moving parts all working together harmoniously to create some of the most novel and interesting popular songs of our time. Murray is clearly an authentic American original in the mold of Stephen Foster, Walt Whitman and Bob Dylan with generous side helpings of Duke Ellington and Herb Ellis.
