The F stands for fun in the F-Holes‘ Angel in The Corner

E-mail Print

With Winnipeg jazz/ roots band the F-Holes, the F stands for fun, plain and simple on their latest CD “Angel In The Corner.”
  They have a happy horn section, which draws the listener in  on the title track which kicks things off.
The fun continues on  “Even Stevens” about a night on the town which has those horns, some catchy banjo and a tClick here to hear  the F-Holesaste of rockabilly. This naughty little ditty is one of many highlights on the CD, because it is covered in a healthy dose of quirky fun.

 The D-Rangers’ Jaxon Haldane produced the new CD and sings back up vocals on “ A Ballad For Ezmerelda.”

 The whole CD is catchy, jazz filled fun with a little folk and distinctive vocals.
“Up For A While”  is a catchy, upbeat, jazzy instrumental which stands out.

 And “Two Cents” is one of many places where the lyrics stand out.
The understated banjo is a highlight of the entire CD.

 And , of course, the horn section is at the forefront, especially on the exceedingly catchy “Mean Mean Mistake.”
 Having seen them perform here once before, this CD actually does seem to capture the essence of the band performing live.  It’s the type of CD you want to listen to over and over again.
