TOM WAITS Glitter And Doom (2008)

Glitter And Doom:
Tom Waits In Concert

Two Hour Plus ’08 Live Show

Courtesy of NPR, a well produced and downright exciting Tom Waits live show from The Fox Theatre, July 5th, 2008. These performances bristle with electricity and the setlist features satisfying amounts of Waits’ bastardized electric blues, even as the sprawling two hour plus show leaves plenty of room for offbeat sidetracks. Waits’ voice is amazing, like some cabaret theatre carney screaming out from the depths of hell. Give a listen to the opener, “Lucinda,” a clear re-reading of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put A Spell On You,” whose otherworldly production and style is masterly re-created by Waits’ crack band (Seth Ford Young, bass / Patrick Warren, keys / Omar Torrez, guitars / Vincent Henry, woodwinds / Casey Waits, drums). They reverently revisit the style on “Black Market Baby,” and there’s some fun Twilight Zone theme variations underlying “9th and Hennepin.”
