If Andy Kaufman wrote jazz standards and Norah Jones sang them, they might sound like the tunes of love, loss and hostility that come from post-modern crooner Ethan Lipton.  With utter sincerity in his lemon-drop voice, Ethan sings about going to work, about breaking up with all his friends, about Peeping Toms and deli salads.

He asks age-old questions such as “Why do lovers take taxis? ” and of Whitney Houston, “What did you do to that sweet, sweet Bobby Brown?”
