Mitchell Froom, a successful producer throughout the 1990s, debuted his own music on Dopamine (Atlantic, 1998), an album recorded with the help of drummer Jerry Marotta, cellist Jane Scarpantoni, saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), violinist Mark Feldman, and others, and sung by a crowd of guest vocalists. The collection is simultaneously schizophrenic, eclectic and catchy, running the gamut from the world-beat of Tastes Good to the delicate Dopamine (his wife Suzanne Vega). The core of the album seems to be a nostalgic tribute to "B-music" of the 1960s: black music (Bunny, Monkey Mind, with Sheryl Crow), pop ballad (Overcast, with Ron Sexsmith), lounge music (Permanent Midnight, I'd Better Not). But the artistic highlights are likely to be the middle-eastern chant Kitsum (Lisa Germano on vocals) and the folk elegy Watery Eyes (Mark Eitzel).
