"You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!" is the title track from pianist/composer Leslie Pintchik's new album featuring Pintchik with Steve Wilson (alto saxophone), Ron Horton (trumpet and flugelhorn), Shoko Nagai (accordion), Scott Hardy (bass and guitar), Michael Sarin (drums), and Satoshi Takeishi (percussion). Pintchik found the album title in one of those "only in New York" moments. While crossing Canal Street at West Broadway in the SoHo section of Manhattan, she heard a voice behind her yell, "You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl!" It was a perfect fit for the sharp-elbows vibe of her new tune, with its samba-funk groove, understated humor and fender-bender of an ending. So with one gruff shout, serendipity handed her a bold, spunky title, for a bold, spunky tune.
