MATT BERRY – The Small Hours (Acid Jazz)

Comedian Matt Berry has been making albums for years, and as I loved his Jean-Michel Jarre pastiche ‘Music For Insomniacs’, I thought I’d try one of his song-based albums. His surreal comedy might lead you to believe that these will be novelty songs, but they are in fact the work of a fine songsmith, with thought-provoking lyrics, and tunes that are never less than hummable. Not a bad voice either, so try it.
