Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester: Next Train Leaving for the Weimar Republic

 

You think you have unsual tastes?

 

Check out Max Raabe, one of my absolute favorites. Max is a German baritone who, with his Palast Orchester, recreates German dance, film, and cabaret music of the 1920s and 1930s. If the flowering of Weimar-era film, music, theatre and art before the Nazi onslaught interests you, you must get to know Max.

 

Max is other-worldly, hilarious in a dry, mischeivous way,  and a really great  singer. The Palast Orchester musicians are incredible.
