"Influenced heavily by bands like Pink Martini, both Jeanie and Charlie wanted to write songs that paid homage to the rich tradition of jazz song structure, with rhythms and harmonies that support rhyme schemes that make sense--nothing minimalist or reductive about them. They’ve developed a sound that is simultaneously both retro and current with grooves that give them a fresh feel."
