LEIGH CALABRESE: singing saw

The new live EP from WHAT TIME IS IT, MR. FOX? showcases this eclectic band''s dynamic range. Each song is like a mini-movie with its own scenery, story and mood. "Horror Cartoon" tells the tale of a boy who turns into a cartoon in a whirlwind of carnival cabaret. The dark and sensual "Deep Waters" blends goth folk with Irish fiddle, while solo piano carries "Song for the Tin Man," the sorrowful story of the broken-hearted Oz character searching for love in a bar full of the latest, shiniest, factory-made models.

The power of King''s "chameleon-like" voice and Cohen''s supple violin create a "rich, musical tapestry." Musical and literary references from Joni Mitchell and Oscar Wilde to King Arthur and Willy Wonka pepper these original compositions. The duo''s performance was captured live at the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge Massachusetts.

The entire CD culminates in the final track, a haunting and unforgettable medley of "Strange Fruit" and "Summertime." Recorded live in the studio, Calabrese''s eerie singing saw, Cohen''s "sweet sad trumpet," and Leggio''s warm earthy bass set the scene where innocence and ignorance collide.

In the mere 7 tracks of "Songs for the Tin Man", WHAT TIME IS IT, MR. FOX? manages to have a stirring conversation with the soul.
