4.0 out of 5 stars "proper music" from mr. crumb and co, 11 April 2003
This review is from: Chasin' Rainbows (Audio CD)
I'm a massive fan of Robert Crumb's and I guess that's essentially why I bought this album by his Cheap Suit Serenaders. Saying that, I was rather more impressed with it than I thought I might be. This is Crumb and friends playing what he might call "real music" - American ragtime (though not the piano type) and blues, all very much in the folk tradition. Much of the album is cover versions of "standards" like the title track "Chasin' Rainbows" with the one or two originals ("Fine Artiste Blues" springs to mind). It's really rinky-dink stuff - a little self-indulgent perhaps (but then if Crumb can't be self-indulgent who can be?) but the perfect soundtrack to an R.Crumb comic. Also, note that Terry Zwigoff plays cello in the Serenaders. He's the guy who made the Crumb documentary before going on to adapt Daniel Clowe's 'Ghost World' graphic novel for the big screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant old style music, 4 Aug. 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Robert Crumb and his cheap suit serenaders create a superb album here. If you like that "old style" jazz/blues/swing this is for you. The sound is fantastic and great separation on the stereo. Cannot recommend this high enough!
