ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two-time Grammy nominee, Don Leady departed from his extensive roots-rock guitar background (the Tailgators, the LeRoi Brothers, and Big Guitars from Texas) to develop a bluesy-jazz groove with his trio, Alamo Suite. The self-titled debut album of Alamo Suite is an mix of instrumental songs, including a new version of “Blue Northern” originally recorded by the Tailgators. For this recording, Don is joined by Cliff Hargrove on acoustic bass and Glenn Rios on percussion.

"As an original LeRoi Brother, Leady helped define the strong roots rock scene in Austin. In the Tailgators, he fused Fabulous Thunderbird-style blues with hardscrabble swamp-rock that made the trio enormously popular. In recent years, he's gone jazzier with Alamo Suite, but retained the big guitar sound he mastered long ago. Whatever the musical configuration, Leady's stellar credentials make him worth a listen." -- Margaret Moser, The Austin Chronicle


From his role as a charter member of Austin roots kings, the Leroi Brothers, to front man for swamp rockers the Tailgators, the conjunto trio Los Cadillos, and his latest creation, Alamo Suite, a three-piece jazz outfit (all of which have the same personnel), Don Leady has proven himself to be such an expert stylistic interpreter, he passes for an original. Alamo Suite, the self-titled album by Leady as jazzbo, works the same turf as Texas guitar great Herb Ellis, messing around with bluesy, jazz-inflected instrumentals. Listening to it is like having a lounge in your own home, without the bothersome barroom smoke or loud talkers at the next table. -- Joe Nick Patoski, Texas Monthly
