Crazy Coqs favourites Paul Ryan and Kenny Clayton return with another selection from their vast repertoire, featuring classics and rarities from the Great American Songbook as well as more than a few delights from further afield. Their jazz-inflected performances are shot through with their trademark brand of irreverent humour which highlights their unique rapport, not only with each other but with audiences.
Ryan was a favourite vocalist of the late jazz critic Jack Massarik while Clayton is simply one of the UK's most acclaimed pianists, composers and arrangers; his career has seen him as musical director for such major stars as Petula Clark, Matt Monro, Charles Aznavour and Dick Haymes.
"Ryan (sings) with all the knowledge and understanding of the nuances and wit of the great lyricists… each song a narrative… personal and poignant, opening up a thousand memories" - Matthew Wright, Jazzwise
"All the verve, vigour and joie de vivre of a couple of rakes who have lived full and interesting lives… like the jazz heroes of old!" - Rick Star, livemusic.com
"Effortlessly stylish interpretations of the Great American Songbook…Ryan's witty delivery is complemented by the quietly authentic genius of Clayton's playing" - Cary Gee, Tribune
