Album Notes
Preston's Latest and Greatest Yet !
A Super Romantic and breezy collection of standards from the 30's 40's and 50's and some of his own songs like "Those Same Old Blues " and "Wear Your Heart" written in that same vintage style.
On This outing Of The 18 out of 20 whopping tracks,Preston Played all the instruments and sang all the vocal parts including gutar and harmonica of course as well as Jazzy drums and Bass filling out the rhythm section
Then at times there are Vocal bass and a vocal scat trumpet stylings he likes to call his "Lipbone"..and an assortment of latin percussion and spanish guitar give this Cd a lush full sound like no other at times then
A One man band on the back porch that sometimes sounds like a Phil Spector (Wall Of Sound) style .Like A Nat Cole goes to Mexico sound on some songs .Some are pure Louis Armstrong or Ray Charles ..With a Natural Django Reinheart Guitar Harmonica thing going on ... A Timeless classic for music lovers from any generation that has a touch of romance and class all it's own!! A Perfect "get in the car and put the top down and get out of town thang!!!"
and chill chill chill!!!

Only one little problem ...
I can't stop listening! I even hope for rush hour traffic so I don't have to leave my car. It's upbeat, fun, engaging; the originals are wonderful and as always, the musicianship amazing. The whole CD is just ... so ... Preston!
