"The Piano Has Been Drinking" - A Tribute to Tom Waits.
TOM WAITS songs performed Live on stage Fundraiser for Battered Women's Support Services Charity. www.bwss.org

With his Old Testament growl and dedication to clanging, wheezing instruments, Tom Waits's sound is unmistakable. His songs mix an imaginative sense of theatre with cool jazz, grizzled blues, and Tin Pan Alley. He's spent four decades advocating for all the lost souls who walk crooked streets while creating some of pop's most vivid moments.

Described as one of the last beatniks of the contemporary music, Tom Waits has had a prolific career. From 1973 (LP "Closing Time") to 1983 ("One From The Heart" soundtrack), he recorded nine LPs for Asylum Records, writing songs mainly in the manner of Tin Pan Alley, mixing them with jazz and blues. Extraordinarily, he never produced a hit, but he earned a cult following all over the world. In 1983 he signed with Island Records, and released a series of albums that stunned the music world. Beginning with "Swordfishtrombones", he introduced a whole new orchestration, which included some of the instruments invented by Harry Partch. He found a new ground for his innovations, searching in sound fields that never before were searched.
