Tom Waits once said of his influences, “a hero ain’t nothing but a sandwich.” In this very special tribute, Mikelangelo hosts some of the most unique and genuine voices of the festival as they reinterpret Waits’ distinctive Old Testament growl.
Reinventing his imaginative sense of theatre, cool jazz, grizzled blues, and Tin Pan Alley, this unlikely collection of voices illuminates the long shadow cast by Waits’ towering musical influence.
I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things. Tom Waits
