Some musicians are out there to keep traditional music alive. Ry Cooder springs to mind. He does it multiculturally, whereas Leon Redbone and Randy Newman stick pretty close to Americana and the Hoagy Charmichael school of singer. I love the old stuff. It's just such a serendipitous/smooth/Moonlight on the Wabash Old School sorta thing! Not too many of us were even born when these tunes were popularized, but like Harry Nilsson's "A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night" and Linda Rondstadt's great renditions of classic tunes, this recording is near landmark quality!

Great accompaniment from his backup band, as usual. Quality recording in every sense! Five stars easily!

This is the best Leon Redbone album I've heard (I own about 7 and have heard parts from his other albums). In fact, this is one of my favorite albums of all time. One gem after another. Beautiful music. A Classic.

The top songs on this CD are, in order, "A Dreamer's Holiday," "Bittersweet Waltz," and "You're A Heartbreaker" with "Lazy River" a close second. Leon's musical arranging talents shines as does his writing ability examplified in "Play Gypsy Play" and "Goodbye Charlie Blues." As is typical with Leon's recordings, the instrumentation varies with each song such that the music does not become boring over time. And if you are a Dr. John fan, listen for him on piano in "Bittersweet Waltz." Leon's singing style is mostly straight which brings out the fullness of his deep voice.

If you like Leon Redbone (who doesn't), add this one to your collection. I have listened to this CD hundreds of times and I never get sick of it. A must have for any jazz lover.

I originally was given a cassette of this album about 8 years ago and that cassette was worn out pretty quickly. I love listening to his music for the lyrics as well as the tunes. I always loved seeing him on Johnny Carson when I was little and love his music now. I highly recommend this album and his music to everyone, especially if you love the Jazz of old. My favorite song on this album is "At the Chocolate Bon Bon Ball". Buy this album, you'll be glad you did.

Leon Redbone's CD, "Up A Lazy River," is a beautiful look at this man's unique style and versatility. He's playful on "At the Chocolate Bon Bon Ball", mellow on "Lazy River", and artistic on "Play Gypsy Play." It's my favorite album by any artist. But then, I dig old popular music from the first half of the 20th century more than a lot of the overly noisy, "wall of sound" stuff that comes out of too many studios today.

Saw Leon perform in Logan Utah a short time back and it brought chills to the spine. This is a truly unique (in the true classical Latin "only one" meaning of the word). If you like character and class in your music. Music done in a down to Earth, laid back yet invigorating style... Leon Redbone is the best there is and this is one of his best right here.

Redbone for the Redbone fan. The right mix of the old classics done with that Redbone flair and those distinctive songs that are his own. I heartily recommend this work to anyone who enjoys Leon at his best.
