Released:
Label: Stag Records
Inspired by his role in the stage production of Becoming Kinky, Jesse Dayton's ninth studio album finds the Texan channeling Kinky Friedman. Jesse Sings Kinky is a loosely played collection of songs that play it straight: That is, Friedman's more colorful, "jokey" songs are put aside in favor of a more serious set of tunes. "Nashville Casualty and Life" features a jaunty Western swing vibe and some killer honky-tonk piano, and rings as true today as it did in the '70s when it was written. "Sold American" may benefit from softer arrangements, but it retains all the bitterness of the original.
