Small Change is the fourth studio album by singer and songwriter Tom Waits , released on September 21, on Asylum Records. A multi-track recording was made as back up, and used when a reference Waits made to actress Jayne Meadows had to be changed.
I wanted to take Tom back to that direction of making records, with an orchestra and Tom in the same room, all playing and singing together. I was never afraid of making a record where the musicians all breathed the same air. Leakage is not a problem. In fact, it's a good thing — it holds a record together He was always surrounded by the music and the records sound like it. We never used headphones. The album featured famed drummer Shelly Manne , and was, like Waits' previous albums, heavily jazz-influenced, with a lyrical style that owed influence to Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski as well as a vocal delivery influenced by Louis Armstrong , Dr.
John and Howlin' Wolf. The music, for the most part, consists of Waits' gravelly, rough voice, set against a backdrop of piano, upright bass, drums and saxophone. Some tracks have a string section, whose sweet timbre is starkly contrasted to Waits' voice. Jay S. Jacobs has described the song as a "stunning opener [which] sets the tone for what follows. The origin of the song is somewhat ambiguous.
The sub-title of the track "Four Sheets to the Wind in Copenhagen" seems to indicate that it is about a time that Waits spent in Copenhagen in while on a tour. There, he apparently met Danish singer Mathilde Bondo. Indeed, in a radio interview, she confirmed that she met Waits and that they spent a night on the town together.
Waits himself described the song's subject during a concert in Sydney, Australia in March "Uh, well I met this girl named Matilda. And uh, I had a little too much to drink that night. This is about throwing up in a foreign country. He said the most wonderful thing about writing that song. He went down and hung around on skid row in L.
He called me up and said, "I went down to skid row I bought a pint of rye. In a brown paper bag. Howe was amazed when he first heard the song, and he's still astonished by it. They all say the same thing to me. That is brilliant, brilliant work. And he never mentions the person, but you see the person. The lyrics are about Waits' first job at Napoleone Pizza House in San Diego , which he began in , at the age of Matt McNeil. Robert McCulloch.
