Middletown, NJ’s Jimmy James Cutrera, better known as Little Big Toe, works from an array of influences that blends into his eclectic, acoustic-led, singer-songwriter compositions. Following a show at the Dauphin Grille on Friday, review and pictures from forthcoming, the shore-side songsmith wasted no time in showing just where his creative impetus was encouraged.
Frank Zappa’s Apostrophe is a concept album that eschews a traditional, linear narrative as it jumps from satiric snipes to impeccable instrumentals to pancake breakfasts as each new idea is unfurled. Little Big Toe now shares his rendition of the linchpin “ballad” from the Zappa classic in “Uncle Remus” which is available for streaming below.
