Produced by Randall Poster and Stewart Lerman, 'I'd Rather Lead a Band' finds Loudon Wainwright III partnering up with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks for their take on some of the American songbook's finest classics. This album showcases a fresh side of LW3 with big band sounds and timeless songs from Irving Berlin, Cliff Friend, Lew Brown and other Tin Pan Alley contemporaries.
