Tom Waits | Small Change | Vinyl LP

  • $ 24.98

Small Change is an album by Tom Waits, originally released in 1976 on Asylum Records.


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. The music for the most part consists of Waits' hoarse, rough voice, set against a backdrop of piano, upright bass, drums and saxophone.
