ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not only Richard's band finally has been provided with a very cool name with this release, you can clearly hear Richard's progression in terms of sound, arrangement and lyrics. With 2 violas, trumpet, flugelhorn and clarinette, he finally made his dream of a small chamber pop ensemble come true. And it shows in the little pop-opera "It's Too Loud" and, of course "Lunchbox". Richard's lyrics are as quirky as ever: He manages to pack the story of having painful driving lessons into a charming, romantic and old-fashioned jazz song, he is making fun out of death in "I Will Catch You" and he is never talking dirty in the groovy "So Dirty" although this doesn't mean he's not. Quite unusal for Richard, there are also some very sad and melancholic moments to be discovered. Open the Lunchbox and get surprised!

Carry Lunchbox in Your lunchbox
As I listened to this I gazed out the window and watched the trees they seemed to be dancing and waving to the melodies emanating from my musik box as if in agreement. Enchantingly beautiful Richard Kapp and his posse have together produced a scintillating collection of tracks which is amazing to find all on one album.

I found to really get this music is to listen intently, it demands one's fullest attention to appreciate and respect this fine body of work. Each track is delectably unique, take your time to drink it in and savor it. The innocence, wonder and magic of the track Lunchbox and the brilliant Cocoon Man are real gems. Another Town and Sweet Melody are beautiful. In fact all the tracks stand on their own as beautiful timeless compositions, lyrics all arranged in a playful and quirky manner.

The Song "Another Town" was recorded via the internet with the German singer/songwriter Ina Simone and the bass on "Driving Lessons" was recorded by the US Jazz Legend Tony Cimorosi who played with Randy Brecker and Alex Foster et al.

I highly recommend this for all music lovers everywhere, here is an Album you'll be glad you bought.
