Ready For You
(2008)
(Authentic 1920's / 30's hot jazz, ragtime, blues & novelty songs)

CD PRICE: £10.99

This is the 6th CD from the enchanting Ms Klein and her highly acclaimed, girdle-bustin’ bunch of West Coast Jazz Archeologists. Ready For You opens with a bang-up bunch of swingy dance numbers by a spirited singer and band that has put a spit shine and polish on its ensemble musicianship. These wonderfully robust tunes will set you jazzing for romance and hurly-burly speakeasy steppin’ out. Starting with the title track (“I’m Getting Myself Ready For You” a rare Cole Porter song originally recorded by Blanche Calloway - Cab’s sister), you’ll be rocking to the rafters and then Bear Hugging your baby.

Three songs feature Janet singing duets and harmonies with Parlor Fellows- John Reynolds (grandson of 20’s 30’s movie star Zazu Pitts), Ian Whitcomb (music historian and 60’s pop star) and David Barlia (fellow ukulelian and eefing crooner). Also featured is Tom Marion member of Robert Crumb’s Cheap Suit Serenaders and Brad Kay, former member of The Original Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo.

Oh!
(2006)
(Authentic 1920's / 30's hot jazz, ragtime, blues & novelty songs)

CD PRICE: £10.99

Announcing!!! “Oh!” the latest, newest CD collection of Rare, Vintage, Rollicking Musical Funtime Frolics from the 1910’s, 20’s and 30’s, as sung and performed by Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys. Janet and the Boys are the best at what they do! They’re unearthing, revivifying, rejuvenating, Vaudevillinating, whoopifying and bringing to joyous life tunes so rare and surprising that they are off the map! Here are the sonorous, hauntingly frank and clever sounds of a lost America, an underappreciated time between the two world wars. This is music that kept people up all night in speakeasies, barrelhouses, dance halls and Vaudeville theatres by the millions. When this band dishes out these neglected melodies and lyrical gems you know you’ve been spoken to. This CD is a “where have you been all my life” musical lost and found treasure box.

OH! Is a gorgeously- packaged little candy box of vintage Jazz-Age Delights-Obscure, Comical, Lovely and Spirited musical bon-bons from the Only Decades That Were Ever worth a Hill O’ Beans.'

Living In Sin
(2004)
(Authentic 1920's / 30's hot jazz, ragtime, blues & novelty songs)

CD PRICE: £10.99

Ukulele chanteuse Janet Klein's 2004 most hotsy totsy CD release entitled " JANET KLEIN'S SCANDALS" vivaciously evokes the mischievous music of 1910-30s nightclubs, clip joints and dance halls with a simmering selection of early jazz tunes. Most of these 22 songs are originally from burlesque, Vitaphone short films, dance hall and movie musicals of the 1920s and 30s, many of which originally not intended for radio or records. In the vein of naughty comedy singers like Sophie Tucker, Eddie Cantor, Fannie Brice and Chico Marx, Janet renders these clever tunes with a loving flare like no other sweet spunky gal can. The captivating Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys have a knack for bringing to life great forgotten music, in a fresh and irresistible way.

This is Janet's 4th CD release and is impossible to listen to without smiling!

Jill's Cocktail Band (SWITZERLAND)
Jill's Cocktail Band
(1920's, 1930's jazz/swing)

CD PRICE: £5.99

Let's take a trip down memory lane and listen to the music of the 20's and 30's ! That's what you get with this mini album, presenting popular songs of that era in an authentic style true to the times.

The heart of our band is the accordion. Although the honky-tonk piano is certainly the most dominant key instrument used in jazz, the accordion was widely used in popular “Jazz” music, particularly in Europe in the 20’s and 30’s. As the accordion is rarely used in Jazz music today, it gives the band a special, rather distinctive touch.
