Adrian Duke CD release 

When: Sat., Dec. 18, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

Gravelly vocals emote over New Orleans piano flourishes. Drums, sax and guitar pile on, and the music builds into funky blues. Adrian Duke recently moved away from the area, but he's coming back to release his latest album, Lazy Bones. A little Tin Pan Alley, a little Gershwin, the disc seems to start off as a collection of jazz standards. But Duke changes course by covering songs from Bob Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel, complicating matters further with tunes made popular by The Drifters and Willie Nelson. It should be a mess, but Duke's yearning, heartfelt voice successfully stitches the patchwork of genres together with an unbuttoned sense of fun. —Andrew Ritchey
