Jazz duo relies on kitchen appliances to spice up their act.

Peggy Coyle & Brad Bolton aren't playing an early April Fools' joke on you tonight: The jazz duo is totally serious when they play turkey-basters — which sound like flutes — onstage. And they give props to Late Show With David Letterman for the idea. "Brad saw a guy come on and play a phenomenal tune on the baster. Brad got his baster out and taught himself how to play," says Coyle, who's also recorded TV and radio voice-overs for Klaben Ford, Reiter Dairy, and several political campaigns. "It's kind of a shtick, but he plays it really well." With appliances in hand, Coyle and Bolton are peddling their new 23-song album, The Evocatively Captivating Guitar-Vocal Stylings of Peggy & Brad, which offers a compilation of live performances of jazz and blues standards like "This Masquerade," "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay," and "Is You or Is You Ain't?" The duo sizes up the collection as "a recipe for an audible treat." "And, yes, there is a baster song on it, in four-part baster harmony," laughs Coyle. The show starts at 10 tonight at the Barking Spider, 11310 Juniper Road. Admission is free. Call 216-421-2863 or visit
Mon., March 31, 10 p.m., 2008
