But with his new CD, “Greed and Fear,”the poignant jabs have a beat you can tap your toe to.

Each track has a decidedly different musical style from the banjo-strumming “Glimmers of Hope” to the 80s feeling “Mr. Goldman and Mr. Sachs,” the jazzy “Dead Cat Bounce” and the lounge-y title track, “Greed and Fear.”

Listening to it, you half expect Donny and Marie Osmond to come out wearing fake moustaches, playing the roles of “Mr. Goldman” and “Mr. Sachs.”

The CD, which includes 10 tracks and comes with a digital booklet, is available for $8.49 on Amazon.com.
