About the CD: Max Fleischer is one of the best known cartoonists of the 20th century, creating and contributing to American culture the one and only Betty Boop. In addition to creating Betty, Fleischer Studios brought the newspaper comic Popeye the Sailor and the cast there to (animated) life. Guitarist Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley) has long been a fan of Fleischer’s work and has long wished to develop a project to present the music that was used in these cartoons (some of it written for the cartoons, but most of them standards of the 20s and 30s). With FLEISCHEREI, he has done exactly that. FLEISCHEREI is a loving musical tribute to the swinging, jazzy soundtracks that adorned animation genius MAX FLEISCHER’S surreal and wacky BETTY BOOP and POPEYE cartoons of the 1930’s. Featuring Gary on guitar, Tony Award Nominee Sarah Stiles on vocals, and the cream of New York City jazz musicians, FLEISCHEREI is a swirling musical melting-pot of jungle-band jazz, Tin Pan Alley torch songs, and raucous vaudeville turns.
Please note that only Continental United States (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and the territory of Puerto Rico) entrants are eligible.
And — BlogHub members ARE eligible to win if they live within the Continental United States (as noted above).
