Ok, stay with me here: Seth MacFarlane…the guy from Family Guy, American Dad, etc…has an album of swing jazz tunes a la Frank Sinatra called Music Is Better Than Words…it’s a straight take, not a goof…and it’s *good*.
Did *not* see that one coming.
Seriously, check out “Something Good” (from the Sound of Music), “The Sadder But Wiser Girl” (from the Music Man) or the tracks he recorded with Norah Jones or Sarah Bareilles.
Huh. Ya learn somethin’ new ev’ry day.
