Description
(Emmy Winner Included/"It's a Jungle Out There"; Grammy Nominee for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals/"Putin") When he isn't writing for the movies, Randy Newman lets loose with witty social commentary and a jaw-dropping ability to switch musical styles at the drop of a hat. On these nine songs, the six-time Grammy winner creates a mini-musical with the eight-minute "The Great Debate," a battle between science and religion; tells the tale of a blues man who forgot his name in "Sonny Boy"; impersonates the Russian president to hilarious effect in "Putin"; and imagines a fateful conversation between John and Bobby Kennedy in "Brothers" which features a rumba. "Wandering Boy" is yet another of Newman's wistful, instantly appealing ballads, and "It's a Jungle Out There" is Newman's theme for the series Monk.

"Newman drills past the surface chatter to explore what might be called the "deep state" of the zeitgeist—the prejudice beneath the prejudice, the foundational assumptions that are harder to expose, much less needle. Newman teases these out brilliantly.... He remains first and foremost a craftsman of song, capable of telling ordinary stories in ways no one quite has before."—NPR
