Squirrel Nut Zippers - Hot (1998) Retail CD
When their 1995 debut The Inevitable Squirrel Nut Zippers received a somewhat apathetic reception from radio programmers, the Chapel Hill sextet (since bolstered to a seven-piece) reconvened in New Orleans, the hot jazz Holy Land they'd seen in photos but never visited. To coax the ghosts of Crescent City out of the mouldy woodwork, the band held a seance at the studio of producer Daniel Lanois, where over 10 days they recorded Hot, their second album and one of 1997's unlikeliest commercial breakthroughs.Jazz hadn't sounded this unschooled and this much fun--and this punk rock--since the kidsmore… at the orphanage brought the house down. And couldn't those modern rock ne'er-do-wells use a solid jolt of this kind of soulfully non-ironic music-for-music's-sake? Sure, the Zips' mid-tempo jazz moments drag a bit but vocalist Katharine Whalen's imitation of Billie Holiday after drinking a glass of milk (not an insult) is easily endured to dig into Hot's new bag of tricks. There we'll find the old time calypso of "Hell" and a swing instrumental, "Memphis Exorcism". And lest we forget, there's some Charleston, lots of Dixieland, and a dose of that old Cab Calloway strut left over from last time. It's a gimmick alright but can you remember one so happily thrust upon us? --Roni Sarig
