ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Put on "New Standards" and find yourself in a dark corner of a smokey cabaret, halfway through a bottle of low-brow Bordeaux.
These intimate, obsessive torch songs teeter between the tragic and comic sides of love. Featured are Jerret's crafty lyrics, sultry voice and revivalist sensiblity. He is backed by an international sound palette, including vibes, upright bass, accordion, conga, and vintage keys. Similar artists include Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, Nick Cave, and Paolo Conte.

If this CD wrote a personal ad, it would read: "Tall, dark & handsome, heartbroken poet seeks femme fatale for silent conversations and slow dancing." Edith Piaf or Mae West answers the ad and rendezvous in a dark, smoky bar. Through the haze comes Jerret Cortese's voice, smoldering with passion and irony. I get a kick out of the music, a sort of cabaret/lounge darkness not heard in America for decades. "Don't cry, don't cry," he tells her, "Oh, go ahead and cry." The music is a bit sleepy to listen to all day, but damn it's sexy! And we smile, sigh, and shake our heads at that racket called love.
