Far be it from me to deny the great Lee Hazlewood the opportunity to sing some torchlight jazz numbers by rote. I'm absolutely sure he had a ball doing it, and respects the iconic reputation of those jazz selections. I will defend his right to release this, but unfortunately, this is a far cry from the dryly humorous and intelligent soft psychedelia that he served up in the late 60s and early 70s. It's about as non-essential as it comes for this wonderful artist.
He founded his cult status on those great Reprise, LHI and MGM recordings however this sounds more like filler than killer.
Nothing can threaten the admiration I have for LH , not even this, but beware, his legacy cannot be judged by this effort.
