ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Crazy People Dance Party is the result of two talented instrumentalists who decide to take matters into their own hands. Their debut record, Clinically Speaking, indulges the creative and eccentric style of Nashville’s hippest rhythm section—bassist Brian Allen and drummer Wes Little. Celebrated by a performance at Rudy’s Jazz Room in Nashville, the record will be released on all streaming services and in physical form on September 24th, 2019.

Showcasing their extensive musical knowledge and technical mastery, the album features eleven original compositions that take the listener on a journey marked by syncopated funk rhythms, playful odd-meter grooves, and lyrical solos.

“While we were on the road with Robben Ford, we started coming up with grooves during sound check. We would record them on our phones and revisit the ideas during writing sessions,” mentions Little. “When we got in the studio, Brian would have his bass in hand and I would accompany on keyboards. Then, we’d record drum tracks, overdub guitar parts and percussion, and eventually invite some of our favorite players to join us. This record is a great example of the work that we’ve done together—we’re extremely proud of it.”

With the help of guests including Ford, Jeff Coffin, and Guthrie Trapp, among others, the record is full of surprises, quirks, and catchy melodies that may even inspire your grandma to get down and dance. It’s undeniably funky undercurrent gives Allen and Little the freedom to stretch as soloists while blending genres and integrating a diverse sonic palette.

“We come from similar backgrounds, ones that are steeped in the tradition of jazz, funk, and R&B, but have worked to become as versatile as possible. In the case of “Gringo Montuno,” we stay authentic to the Latin style, even though we primarily make our living off of other music,” says Allen.

When they’re not working as a unit, their respective touring and recording credits include Stevie Wonder, Sting, Dolly Parton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Jonathan Davis, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Larry Carlton, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, and Joe Nichols, among others.

Following the release of Clinically Speaking, Allen and Little plan to embark on a series of clinics and educational programs that focus on musicality, professionalism, and excelling as a rhythm section. “Brian and I understand how to make a rhythm section work on both a personal and musical level, which is quite rare,” claims Little. “We look forward to sharing our respective insights in a practical and educational manner.”
