This project - two songs, "Cats" and "Funny Face" (A-side/B-side) bring together the sophisticated song craft of singer-songwriterJohnny O'Donnell, the iconoclast arrangements of Van Dyke Parks, and the genial production touch of Lewis Pesacov into a refreshing and rewarding musical package that deserves the focus that only a 45 provides.
Built upon a relationships formed in Los Angeles over a nearly twenty year period the songs, penned by O'Donnell, are explorations in harmony, straddling the line between familiar and freakish. The arrangements and production are cinematic and full of drama which befits a production born of the belly of Hollywood. Romance, intrigue, and a touch of the unreal is where the tripartite of musical craftsmen have brewed this potion of melodies.
