Ingrid Lucia hates it when people tell her she sounds like Billie Holiday. But there’s really no getting around it. Her gritty, twangy vocals on songs like “Violent Love,” “Love is Coming Back,” and Louis Armstrong’s “Someday You’ll Be Sorry” are eerily reminiscent of Lady Day. But Ingrid adds her own N’awlins twang and spice to the 12 tracks on Hotel Child, the latest release by The Flying Neutrinos, giving the disc a burlesque rather than bluesy quality. Hearing her bump and grind her way through originals like “Cry” (one of four tracks penned by guitarist Matt Munistieri) and the Neutrinos’ standard “Mr. Zoot Suit,” one imagines girls with oversized fans and feather boas strutting and shaking their way across the stage in a Southern speakeasy. A lightning-fast vocal turn by dreamy trombonist Todd Londagin on “Baby’s Making Duck” and a cajun swingified version of Lou Reed’s “After Hours” round out the disc nicely. The Neutrinos may not be breaking new ground with their third release, but their Southern fried jazz stylings never fail to satisfy.
