New Tony Kieraldo album is a blast of swinging ragtime fun
(Published: February 21, 2019)

For a genre that often takes itself too seriously, Tony Kieraldo's Milk Money is quirky, flamboyant entertainment.

A collection of swinging covers from all across the stylistic and generational pop spectrum, Kieraldo bravely waves through uncharted waters, offering unconventional renditions of sacred radio hits. And that's a huge reason why Milk Money is such a winning effort: Kieraldo isn't offering paint-by-numbers versions of overplayed and familiar tunes. Rather, he's like shoving them in a time machine, showing us what they perhaps would've sounded like if they had been recorded decades earlier.

The piano cover of AC/DC's heavy-metal anthem "Highway to Hell" still manages to rock in its own way as Kieraldo is jamming on the keys. Hard rock purists will probably scoff but there's no denying the exhilarating energy that Kieraldo fuels it with, and the playful female vocals are simultaneously sweet and funny. Who would've thought AC/DC could have been played as jazz? As with many of the tracks on the record, Kieraldo captures the original melodies so well that they're instantly recognizable albeit not in this form.

Among the best cuts is Kieraldo's transformation of Cyndi Lauper's early '80s postcard "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" into a stomping ragtime blast. This is a record that will bring joy and surprised reactions at any party.
