Although he's an L.A. kinda guy, to the point of writing film soundtracks and being responsible for the city's unofficial anthem (thanks to widespread misinterpretation of its irony) "I Love L.A.," Randy Newman spent many of his formative years in New Orleans—which goes a long way toward explaining his rampaging quirkiness, along with the persistent Crescent City traits in his piano work. He's a satirist with an amiably sardonic world view, his songs usually amounting to comic adventures in misanthropy. All ages.
