CHANDLER TRAVIS PHILHARMONIC
Chandler Travis Philharmonic Blows!
Zesty! Stunning! Startling!
…these are but words written on the CD package. And I might have gotten the title of the disc wrong—it could be It’s a Chan’s Chan’s Chan’s World—or Soul Brother #764—or Is It Yes Or Is It Both—or maybe it could be Paint That A Mauve Part 1-2. Whichever one you pick, it fits. Chandler and troupe continue to refuse to grow up. The only maturity they show is in their songwriting and musical skills—otherwise these children have as much fun as possible sounding like they’re lost at the Mardi Gras. They spot Randy Newman, but they’ve used up their luck, especially at the airport where they must have gotten distracted by Sesame Street. If they’re growing old, somebody forgot to tell them. And how did they get Jennifer Kimball to agree to a duet? Amazing! Sensational! Thrilling!—more words on the package. Oh, and I did get the title wrong—it’s the Chan Chan Chan one—no, now I’m not sure. But I don’t mind because I have my photo of Chandler (suitable for framing—or so the package tells me)—included with every CD. (T Max)
