Tales of Misbehaviour

Katya's latest album available on MAINSTEM RECORDS - is an eclectic mix of Parisian Blues Gypsy N'Orleans Russian Folk Jazz...featuring Dave O'Higgins, Martin Shaw, Denny Ilett & Anthony Kerr

Back cover notes:

Most creative people I know have muses or find inspiration in the art around them, whether it’s a book, a painting or other people in their particular creative field. For this project I found great inspiration from Mr. Tom Waits, and the late, very great Mr. Louis Armstrong. I’m always tickled by Blossom Dearie as I admire her taste for the unusual. In this day of ipods, itunes, mp3’s etc. I took a leap of faith in compiling a mix of unusual tunes as if I’d downloaded an itunes concoction for myself. Enjoy!
