What do a Dixieland combo, a bluegrass band, a doo-wop chorus, a shredding electric guitar, and an acoustic folk ballad have in common? They are all part of Paul Chasman's CD, "There's an Elephant in My Room." The common thread is Paul's insightful and ironic lyrical sense combined with inspired musicality and masterful guitar playing. From the biting satire of the title song, to the hilarity of "Frankie Said the 'F' Word," the powerful blues of "Keep on Walkin' " to the apocalyptic vision of "Planet of the Apes," to the love song for Sarah Palin, "There's an Elephant in My Room" is a skillfully woven reflection of Paul Chasman's deep, dark, funny, and quirky world view.
