H.C. Schmidt sings Tom Waits June 21, 2006

German singer Hans-Christian Schmidt tours with a Tom Waits repertoire. Georg Wieland accompanies him on piano.

His site has sound clips of Georgia Lee, Kentucky Avenue, Take me home and Tom Traubert´s blues in the ‘audio’ section.

I was impressed. He not only has the voice but seems to have captured a good bit of the TW mood as well.

notice how exaggerated the drunken slurs are when he sings.

I attributed that to a heavy German accent. Or then again, maybe he’s actually drunk.

Why would one do such a thing – why join such a “soundalike contest”? If someone captures the mood he would certainly do it in his/her own original way. Like they did it with Cohen’s songs on the album “I’m your fan”, which I really like. Now with Cohen it’s easy to arrange the songs in a new way. Waits arranges his songs so rich, that one needs some distance and genius to alternate them.
