Muze PNote This 1986 Leon Redbone release has more of what fans of the mustachioed, fedora-wearing performer have come to expect. With his nostalgic homages to the styles of yesteryear--ragtime, swing, and blues among them--Redbone has a sweet, familiar appeal for most listeners. But while he's largely a revivalist, he also has a fair amount of personal panache, as RED TO BLUE proves. His rich baritone and cheeky delivery give new life to tunes such as "Somebody Stole My Gal" and "Someday Sweetheart."
Muze PNote Redbone dips his cup into country here on "Diamonds Don't Mean A Thing" and "Lovesick Blues," and shows his voice just as well suited to yodel and twang as it is to laid-back jazz crooning. A couple of Redbone's own compositions, "Steal Away Blues" and "Aw You Salty Dog," fit well alongside old-timey rags and Bob Dylan's "Living with the Blues." Redbone is known for inviting high-profile friends to his recording sessions, and RED TO BLUE is no exception. Dr. John, Hank Williams, Jr., and the Roches all put in appearances, adding sparkle and shine to this accomplished, charming record.

Producer: Leon Redbone; Beryl Handler
