Pianist/singer Jason Trachtenburg sings biting, satirical lyrics inspired by slides he digs up at estate sales. His wife, Tina, works the slide projector and his daughter, Rachel, performs on drums and sings backup. The Seattle-based singer/songwriter/guitarist who calls himself Baby Gramps sings in a voice that is somewhere between Popeye and Blind Willie Johnson. He plays from a library of thousands of Palaeozoic jazz, blues, hillbilly and pop tunes.
