"The playing is tasteful and confident." bruce iglauer @ alligator records
Kid Andersen’s Greaseland Studio is a magical place. I had the opportunity to spend some time there in August making a record.
I’ve always been drawn to the sound of the West Coast guitar players, from T Bone Walker, through all of the great guitarists who performed in William Clarke’s band as well as the masterful Charlie Baty.
The traditional sound of a clean, unadulterated swinging guitar plugged straight into a tube amplifier sans effects speaks to me and inspires my playing.
This recording contains all original songs played in a variety of blues styles ranging from swampy to swing.
The themes explored include pleasure, pain and purpose.
It was an honor to spend time and record with all of these great musicians. The end result is a recording that captures a very special moment in time. I hope that people will enjoy listening to it even half as much as we did creating it!
The CD was released at Moondog’s on Friday, Nov. 27, 2015 I am thankful for all who helped make it possible.
