Description:


If you prefer your music lowdown and hotsy totsy, then the ever popular
Hollywood chanteuse Janet Klein can deliver the goods -- and how!

Like a svelte dream in a vintage Vitaphone short, pitching woo as she transports
you to a time when novelty and a bit of sentimental swing were the thing,
her group specializes in "Obscure, Naughty and Lovely Songs
of the 1910s, '20s and '30s".

The enchanting Miss Klein vocalizes and plays the ukulele to these
long-forgotten tunes, abetted by a host of fabulously
music-minded gents known as the Parlor Boys.


Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys: With her sleek bob haircut (usually with a flower placed just so), vintage fashion sense, strikingly beautiful looks and artfully customized ukulele, Janet Klein might seem at first to be a simple novelty act, a 21st-century hipster "ironically" recreating the subtly naughty looks of a fin-de-siecle French postcard. Then she opens her mouth to sing. There's no Betty Boop hiccups or Mae West-style brassiness in her charmingly original voice. And when she starts to play her ukulele, it's clear that this oft-ridiculed cousin of the guitar is neither prop nor gimmick, but a delightful and under-utilized musical instrument. Bearing an ever-expanding repertoire of, as she puts it, "obscure, lovely and naughty songs from the 1910's , 20's and 30's," Janet Klein is a musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F. Scott Fitzgerald heroine.
