Inara George with Van Dyke Parks ‘An Invitation’: Aidin Vaziri | Van Dyke Parks has a way of making you feel seasick without ever leaving land. His zealous arrangements are as dizzyingly childlike and oddly sinister as his list of past clients: Brian Wilson, Joanna Newsom and Harry Nilsson for the soundtrack of the movie “Popeye.” Unlike those artists, Bird and the Bee singer Inara George is too willing of an accomplice for the famed Los Angeles producer. Her barely there vocals and throwaway lines, such as “Have you ever seen the ocean?/ It’s darker at the bottom,” easily get lost in his hallucinogenic score of strings, horns and banjos. Parks comes off looking like a bad guest. It’s an odd collaboration that, despite turning up the gem “Oh My Love,” doesn’t really do anyone any favors.
