Peter Mulvey & The Crumbling Beauties CD-Release Show
Presented by Lizard Lounge
March 27, 2012
THE GOOD STUFF, Peter Mulvey's 15th record, is a collection of standards which promptly rejects the accepted definition of “Standard” in favor of a more vivid, open approach. The music of Tom Waits is right there with Duke Ellington; Willie Nelson next to Thelonious Monk; Jolie Holland juxtaposed with Bill Frisell. Mulvey (along with his band, the Crumbling Beauties) address each tune with a true artist's touch. Twenty-odd years on the road, performing songs from his own catalog and from a vast, varied, and deep well of classic and obscure covers, has prepared Mulvey to deliver this collection. To each rendition, he brings the soul of a singer, a light touch in a heavy world. THE GOOD STUFF performances feature upright bassist Paul Kochanksi, violinist Randy Sabien, guitarist David Goodrich, and drummer Jason Smith. Paul, David and Jason join Peter at The Lizard show.
