The New Lowdown by House of the Black Gardenia uses a steady brew of authentic original compositions in the style of vintage traditional jazz and electro swing. You can hear the Charleston swing dance sound in the electro swing. This album is a classy flavoured jazz album from 2020.
Showgirl was about a beautiful shy girl who was a dancer and performer at an entertainment show wearing revealing clothing. She was a hit as a showgirl and later became a pin-up model with a devoted legion of fans but she had eyes for just one man. So she gave herself to God, quit working as a showgirl, and she became a nun.
She was a shy girl but she was beautiful. The man who was her manager and promoter wanted to show her off. So he bought her dresses and high-heeled shoes because he loved to see her take them off. He told her as he was kissing her shoulder, “You’ve got talent. You shouldn’t waste it all on me. You could be up on a stage with your name in lights. You are something the world should see. Go girl, become a showgirl.”
She was a hit as a showgirl and later became a pin-up model with a devoted legion of fans which included poor boys, princes, playboys, scammers, cons, and priests. But she had eyes for just one man
Every night when he knew that he was taking her home, he was the envy of all his friends. But deep down inside she knew that it wasn’t right. She vowed that she would make amends. He found out too late when he found that note. She hated what she had become.
So she gave herself to God and quit working as a showgirl. She became a nun. The sisters took her in. She repented her sins. No more would she be part of the world of men. But the next little girl had wandered into his world. He would start all over again.
Russian Caravan is one of those swinging tea drinking songs filled with jazz and electro swing. The song revolves around the concept of drinking tea.
All the most wonderful pleasures in life come from drinking herbal tea. This might seem strange and even frightening at first. So don’t be afraid to try something new when you want to quench your thirst. You can’t get enough of Formosa Oolong. Orange Pekoe and China Keemun is just anyone’s cup. You’ll also love Lapsang Souchong. Fate is written in the tea leaves.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
