Small Change' is a masterpiece that contains some of Waits' best early work. Classic jazz, tin pan alley and Stephen Foster filtered through Tom's unique world view and lyrical genius. Heartbreaking, hilarious and always vivid, songs like, 'Step Right Up', Tom Traubert's Blues', 'I Wish I Was In New Orleans' and 'Invitation to the Blues' are all classics that have influenced generations of songwriters since. Recorded with a live orchestra and featuring jazz legend, Shelly Manne on drums, 'Small Change' is a classic and stands as one of Tom Waits' most popular recordings.
