Introducing… The Claudettes!

The White Stripes and Black Keys rock the blues with a guitar attack. Like the Bad Plus, The Claudettes brandish a piano instead. But The Claudettes have created their own fanatical fusion of blues and soul-jazz — like Ray Charles on a punk kick. Imagine an amped-up piano hybrid of Otis Spann, Ray Charles and Mose Allison, joined by a jolly madman drummer and conducted in gonzo fashion by Raymond Scott. File under: post-burlesque? Neo-vaudeville? Cosmic cartoon music? You’ve never seen a piano-drums duo like this.

“Soon to be classic… a vintage vibe that should find ears with neo-Hipsters, old school cool cats and contemporary greasers alike.” –Sepiachord

“I am not sure I have heard anything better.  On the other hand, it scares the crap out of me.” –Reflections in Blue
