Come out for a night in the old gin mill as Jazzville welcomes back Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys, a swing quintet who perform obscure, naughty, and lovely songs from the 1910's, 1920's, and 1930's. With her sleek bob haircut (usually with a flower placed just so), vintage fashion sense, strikingly beautiful looks and artfully customized ukulele, Janet Klein might seem at first to be a simple novelty act, a 21st-century hipster "ironically" recreating the subtly naughty looks of a fin-de-siecle French postcard. Then she opens her mouth to sing...
There's no Betty Boop hiccups or Mae West-style brassiness in her charmingly original voice. And when she starts to play her ukulele, it's clear that this oft-ridiculed cousin of the guitar is neither prop nor gimmick, but a delightful and under-utilized musical instrument. Janet Klein is a musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F. Scott Fitzgerald heroine.
