the Ragtime Gals

And a double bill on this fabulous Thursday. This one hot off the press from Jimmy Fallon's show last night.

It might be a stretch to classify this in any way under "cabaret", but I just wanted to reflect that our art form is about taking a piece of music, and interpreting it to make it uniquely your own. And this certainly does that.

It is features Justin Timberlake, whose meteor has been unstoppable as of this last month guest starring. Along with host Jimmy and three other cronies in dapper candy-cane colored stripes, they reinvent the barbershop quartet. To the tune of Timberlake's own "Sexy Back." On listening; the tight harmonies seem totally in line until you start to hear the lyric content they are selling. Random, inspired and bizarre all at once.
