Oh no a jazz vocalist an electric piano. Please, I've heard it before. We all have. Now, that might sound like the lament of a jaded writer, and surely that sentiment has (perhaps unfairly) colored many a negative review. "A Heartache on the Side" provides convincing evidence, however, that a closed mind tends to flush away great opportunities. Had I followed the usual groupthink, I would have missed out on this jauntily slinky track. With guitarist Henrik Cederblom providing thick and bluesy accompaniment, the song takes on an almost Tom-Waits-by-way-of-Southside-Johnny quality. Factor in the swingin' and randy lines of trombonist Markus Ahlberg, and you've got yourself a genuine good time.
