Composing Ourselves — An All-Original Revue

Composing Ourselves is a collection of original Alpher/Litt cabaret songs – which, if not quite classics yet, may surely be dubbed "pre-classics" – tackling topics as diverse as the weaponization of space, the life-cycle of apples, the cryopreservation of embryos, women's lingerie, and food poisoning. David's sophisticated, tuneful, humorous music embraces styles from jazz to blues to faux Dvorák and beyond. The songs are strung together by our usual lame attempt at patter, which means that whether you're laughing with us or at us, we can nevertheless guarantee that you'll be laughing.
