The Canuck roots rebel celebrates the release of his daring new rhythm-box enhanced Dusty album with shows tonight (Thursday) through Saturday (November 25-27) at Hugh's Room.
Chet Baker // Chet Baker Sings
"I've been listening to a lot of old jazz stuff, mostly by vocalists like Dinah Washington and Chet Baker. I love this whole album. To me, he's the real deal."
Tom Waits // Blood Money
"You need to be really brave to make records like this. It's one of those things where you listen to it once and think, 'Yeah, it's just Tom being Tom,' but a year later it's your favourite record."
Dusty Springfield // Dusty In Memphis
"When it sounds like the truth, I'm in. Usually I can tell whether something is honest or not in the first three seconds, and this is. There's no pretense or second guessing; it sounds like they were just making music."
