Album Notes
This is an EP of big band and western swing tunes, played Texas style by a combo of Austin musicians: Rose Sinclair (non-pedal steel guitar), Rob Harding (hollow-body electric guitar), David Carroll (upright bass) and Ron Erwin (drums). Recorded at Jake Langley's Chicken Shack studio in Austin, TX.

The tunes:
1. A Smooth One -- We loved Texan jazz guitarist Herb Ellis' arrangement of this Benny Goodman/Charlie Christian number, and we added some twin guitar harmony parts with the guitar and steel, a western swing tradition.

2. Jersey Bounce -- Benny Goodman had a #1 hit with this big band tune in 1942.

3. Nuages -- This tune was written in 1940 by French gypsy-jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt. We play it with a slow Latin feel.

4. Tiny's Tempo -- Jazz tenor guitarist Tiny Grimes wrote this tune and recorded it with Charlie Parker. I was inspired by steel guitarist Jeremy Wakefield's twin guitar version. We quote Bird's "Billie's Bounce" toward the end.

5. Tenderly -- Here's a beautiful ballad from 1946.

6. Panhandle Rag -- This uptempo western swing steel guitar instrumental comes from Leon McAuliffe, who played with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
