Driving You Crazy! is the second release from this San Franscico outfit. More than just a standard retro band recreating musical genres, the Blue Room Boys combine swing and bebop arrangements with a modern humorist twist. Several originals are mixed with standards like "Blue Moon," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," and Ellington's "Black and Tan Fantasy," highlighted by the vocals of Tricia Thomas and fronted by a brass section consisting of Noel Jewkes, Danny Armstrong, and Ralph Carney (known for his work with Tom Waits).
