David Greenberger/Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound "They like me around here"

(PelPel) With Greenberger doing another collabo with Cebar, a man associated with Wisconsin, perhaps this is a good time to invoke the name of another Dairy State-er. There are a lot of things going on with the content and tone of Greenberger's re-jiggered transcriptions of semi-free-associaiton interviews with the elderly, but as far as the feel and sound, DG seems to be entering the realm of Ken Nordine's word jazz. This comparison partly comes from Cebar's ambitious scoring, but age and experience sweetening Greenberger's voice like a smooth (nasal) whiskey may not put him in the same stadium as the magic voiced-Nordine, but they certainly have helped him enter the stadium parking lot. Jazz ain't's just old and rambling on sublimely!
