Rocking a repertoire that encompasses French cabaret, klezmer, tango and Tin Pan Alley, Padam Padam (named after an Édith Piaf song) should work nicely for a classy, continental evening out. Vocalist Lisa Platt has a winking sort of delivery that bridges the gap between the eras of the songs' origins and the sensibilities of contemporary listeners. The interplay between Kathy Fors' accordion and Barbara Bernstein's viola, with the strong support of Jaime Leopold's double bass, conveys the pleasure of shared music-making. And, to these ears, it's actually Leopold's own composition, "Window on Prince Street," that is the highlight of the ensemble's self-released, self-titled album. Hopefully, the group will continue to synthesize its influences and come up with more original material. —JEFF ROSENBERG, WILLAMETTE WEEK.
