Description
Sylvia, The darling of The Easy Aces, after bailing Michael and I out of jail for blatant and excessive copyright infringement and other behaviors of decadent displays of run-on sentences and also waiting patiently for our commitment to society to be thoroughly fulfilled, came up with the idea of recording this great American Classic. Not sure when the idea hit her, maybe it was the time when Michael drove The Packard into the Pacific at Santa Monica while I was hanging off the running board trying to grab a... oh, never mind. At any rate. After a long self impelled sabattical, The Easy Aces are back!!!
Everyone say, YAY! (back until those warrants catch up to Michael and I again)

Where would we be without Sylvie Baby, eh Michael?


From Wikipedia:
"(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66", often rendered simply as "Route 66", is a popular song and rhythm and blues standard, composed in 1946 by American songwriter Bobby Troup. It was first recorded in the same year by Nat King Cole, and was subsequently covered by many artists including Chuck Berry in 1961, The Rolling Stones in 1964, Depeche Mode in 1987 and Glenn Frey in 2012[1]. The song's lyrics follow the path of the U.S. Route 66 highway, which used to run a long distance across the U.S., going from Chicago, Illinois, to Los Angeles, California.

You've been away too long! But legal problems will do that! Great to hear the three of you together again. No more sabbaticals! Agreed?

Hey chief--great hearing from you! Yes, I've been rather reclusive lately (not all of it by choice either!) but work should be winding down soon and I should have my weekends to myself once again and have time to spend here and do things I really enjoy. We are so pleased you liked our little opus--thanks so very much Dave! Michael

Smooth
This is a wonderful reminder of how a good song can be done in many different ways and shine. Good to hear Michael again and the other vocal (Andy?) provides excellent contrast. Sylvia's smooth keys underneath and the swaying sax all make this a delightful version of the song. Great job!
