You know what I get for continually copping hard copies of albums I like? I miss excellence such as “Henny & Gingerale,” which is the iTunes bonus cut from Mayer Hawthorne’s swinging studio LP How Do You Do. Yes, despite listening to that album damn near once a day, I’d never heard the audible cocktail before seeing this new booze-filled visual. But, alas, there couldn’t really be a better introduction, as the suave surroundings Mayer entertains with here would make anyone throw on a bow tie and feel part of the party.
Actually, I better watch a few more times if I want to be on point tonight, when my lady friend and I check out Hawthorne hit up his hometown digs in Detroit for what should be one hell of a show.
