ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs on Jef Chandler’s cd, Account, were written between the years 1999 and 2007. The cd features 18 of the artists who, at one point in time during these years, performed with and recorded with the Jef Chandler Band. So the album is first and foremost a studio account of the songs Chandler has performed with his band over the past decade.

Indeed, there are many memorable performances on this CD. Among others, Account features vocal performances by national recording artists Danielle Howle and Doug Jones, lead singer of the band Craven Melon. This CD contains an entire host of great guitar riffs and leads, courtesy of Mike Bagwell, Charles Hedgepath, guitarist for The Work, Matt Morgan of the band Red Against Green, and John Atkins. Two Upstate SC singers, Rob Goss and Andrea Christopher-Snipes, chip in with lead vocal performances. Musicians also appearing on the cd include Mark Dye from The Work, Kevin Heuer of the band Vigilantes of Love, Matt Jennings, Derek Bridges, Jessie Brickhouse, Chris Garrett, Kris Hyatt, Dave Sims, and Jeff Holland.

As you would expect from a collection of songs that represent the work of an entire decade, the material on the album ranges from hard-rocking numbers reminiscent of the Black Crowes, such as Let My Troubles Fly, to more nuanced Country-leaning tunes such as In Your Own Way, to the reggae tinged No Problem, to the experimental sounds of Home No More.

Lyrically, there are songs on this album that tell stories. The Spirit’s Dried Like Blood is an account of a gold miner who never hit pay dirt; the first song on the cd, Zero, is about a group of urbanites who have fallen on hard times, and decide to take to the country, a la Woodstock culture, to grow some plants and make a living off the land, so to speak. But there are also many songs here that suggest a mood or an emotion, such as Home No More, or Cottonmouth, which is a wry description of a guy who’s decided to get away from a lover who was, let’s say, a little crazy.

Tales of being broke, looking for dough, trying to score in one way or another, love gone wrong, and even a few songs of hope, such as No Problem and Lucky, are all included on the new 2009 release of Jef Chandler’s cd Account. The work of many great musicians has been distilled here into a one-hour collection of great songs and many memorable musical moments. Enjoy!
