jen mccarthy - fannin street and chocolate jesus (tom waits covers)
this might be my first truly field recorded posting for MFOA. this lady was very nice to me when i played at this little wine shop the week before, and she told me she would be doing an evening of tom waits covers the following wednsday. i felt i should attend.
she only did late career material. she had a 3-ring binder sitting on the piano with all the songs in plastic sleeves and a post-it note inside reminding her to breath in and out. the modern folk music of america. it was a charming performance. i like these recordings, with the introductions and background conversations. this is an attending to a laying before, for what its worth.
