Tom Waits - Glitter & DoomWith his gruff voice and often dark musical accompaniment, this idiosyncratic American legend is certainly a master of doom of sorts. But Tom is also a dazzling performer, conjuring up a modern homage to vaudeville, carnivals and old-time minstrel shows. This double CD live set captures plenty of glitter, from the colorful characters of “Live Circus” to the driving railroad rhythm of “Get Behind the Mule,” with percussion from Tom’s son Casey. The spoken-word Disc Two is a wonderfully wacky tour de force.
