TONY JEFF AND HANK

2008 (1994)

Back in the last century, in the 1990's, I had the good fortune of a house gig that lasted for nine years. It was run by a fabulous singer, DOREEN SMITH and included a truly masterful jazz guitarist, TONY QUARRINGTON. Tony used to stay at my house every week and we often found ourselves in my little recording studio. Tony had the kooky notion of doing a duet album of HANK WILLIAMS songs performed on just bass and guitar. Almost every week we would sit down and lay down a few Hank tunes. One of them, RAMBLIN MAN, found it's way onto my record EVERYTHING IS COMING CLEAR AND PLAIN TO MY UNDERSTANDING. The rest lay fallow, until now. 14 years later but definitely not too late we present to you these playful and quirky renditions of some of Hank's biggest hits performed by two players at the top of their game.
