It's almost inconceivable that the guy who's been crafting brilliant baroque pop for years could turn around and issue this clean, intelligent gem of an album. But Lerche goes all Chet Baker on us (in the best way), internalizing the rules of jazz standards and coming up with a clutch of originals, sung in that precise, crystalline voice. And he's only 25!
