Music Millennium

SLEEPYTIME IN CHINATOWN features six original tunes written by Pete Krebs, David Langenes and the rest of the Stolen Sweets. Three of the originals {'Sleepytime in Chinatown', 'Willie The Weeper, The Chinatown Creeper' and 'Smokey Joe's Holiday'} were inspired by the mystery and intrigue of Chinatown, along with Cab Calloway's use of Chinatown as a backdrop for many of his most famous tunes. Some of Calloway's most familiar characters appear on the record, making it somewhat of an homage -- and sequel -- to Calloway's early yarns. The remaining tunes were inspired by 1930's radio stars The Boswell Sisters' vocal arrangements and Django Reinhardt's gypsy jazz guitar style.
