about

At first, it sounds like the jazz soundtrack to either your favorite noir film or a Doris Day film from 1962. Then you realize that it isn't quite jazz at all but the orchestrated sound of six accomplished jazz musicians playing an eclectic mix of original songs and re-arranged iconic pop tunes that go back to the '50's that all sound unmistakably Chaise Lounge. On stage, the band looks as polished as it sounds. And the show, with Charlie Barnett and Marilyn Older's between-song banter and the hysterical interplay between trombonist John Jensen and reedman Gary Gregg is old-school , laugh out-loud entertainment. The grooves are soul deep. The lyrics are a mélange of highly crafted stories that cast a cinematic spell, running from heartbreakingly blue to flat-out funny. Singer Marilyn Older delivers these songs with an easy and sophisticated grace. The blend of upright bass, an old Gretsch drum kit, a fat Gibson electric guitar, trombone and sax make up a sound that rocks and swings and grooves like that stack of Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz and Norah Jones 45s spinning in your head.
