At the band’s first gig, Dave’s True Story vocalist Kelly Flint introduced a song as “another one of Dave’s true stories,” and the name stuck. She was referring to songwriter Dave Cantor, a playwright in an earlier incarnation who now pens the group’s sensuous down-tempo studies in pop-jazz. Nature’s songs are so cool and seductive, it takes a few listens before Cantor's urbane, edgy lyrics sink in, but the discovery then adds another layer of appreciation. That appreciation has been growing, resulting in sales of over 50,000 CDs, without major-label support. (In 2001, Dave's True Story thought their big break had finally come when two of their songs were featured in the indie film Kissing Jessica Stein -- however, they were inexplicably excluded from the movie’s soundtrack CD.) From the sinuous bossa nova beat and sinister lyrics of “World in Which We Live” to the loungy blues of “Chasin’ the White Line Down,” Flint is an enchanting, versatile chanteuse whose voice recalls Astrud Gilberto and Julee Cruise. Producer/bassist Jeff Eyrich gives it a just the right touch of haunting echo, and the supporting ensemble includes Bernard Ulrich’s sultry saxophone licks and Fred Walcott’s laid-back bongos. Top-shelf.
