ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The plectrum banjo's style of chord melody was pioneered by Mr. Eddie Peabody, "The King of the Banjo" during the 1920's. The idea was to create a full sound on the four strings that needed little or no accompaniment whilst carrying the melody and rhythm. Whilst his album is not a tribute to Mr. Peabody, it is certainly done in respect and it does feature one of his original VegaVox #4 stage banjos, played in a similar style to the great master. The opening track, "Sweet Sue, just you" was a particular favourite of his and he often opened his shows with this tune. The other "Peabody" tunes on the album are not a slavish copies either, they reflect the influences of other great banjo players and has traces of Django Reinhardt, Bluegrass, early Jazz and Swing. The great Music Hall (it is called Vaudeville in the U.S.A.) star George Formby also claims part of the limelight with his 1940's hit "Fanlight Fanny" recorded here on an original 1940's George Formby Dallas E ukulele banjo. The song tells the story of an ageing, buxom cabaret singer who parties every night in London's West End nightspots.
Backed by Steffi Fust, a lady drummer who plays with taste and timing, plus the number one Sousaphone player in Europe, Mr. Clive Fenton, (who also plays bass guitar on a few tracks) the rhythm section swings along nicely. Sean's acoustic Gibson L7 jazz guitar and self-made ukulele join the rhythm section too.
Sean Moyses has many banjo recordings to his name and "Jazz Banjo" makes a happy edition to this collection. Artwork by Remco Houtman Janssen.
