I Still Get Dressed On Sundays

by Gene Pistilli

The man known as the "Hoboken Saddletramp" toyed with calling himself "Hank Sinatra" as a means to convey the fact that he's brilliantly melded the tonality of a true crooner with the snappy sound of Western Swing.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
by Ray Benson - Asleep at the Wheel

Gino Pistilli! It sounds like the star of a spaghetti western or a character on The Sopranos. Or maybe a New York cowboy in Nashville, feeding the hit makin' machinery of the country music business. Well, he's all of that and much, much more!

If he were only one of the founders of The Manhattan Transfer it would have been enough to impress me. If he only had written a number one tune for Randy Travis, "Too Gone Too Long," he would have impressed me. But he has written dozens of great songs, sings in a smooth smokey baritone that resonates like a cool breeze and keeps the tradition of great songsmithing in good stead with his original, yet familiar, tunes.

So enjoy this CD (unless ya got it on 8 track) and imagine, if you will, Gino's tattooed hands playing notes outta his guitar, singin' thru a haze of cigarette smoke and riding off into the sunset in a yellow cab with A SET OF TEXAS LONG HORNS on the hood! Muchos gracias amigo, me gusto mucho mas!

NOTES FROM THE ARTIST
My love for swing music was handed down to me from my folks. From Count Basie to Spade Cooley, they liked it all as long as it swung. They were big Hank Williams, Sr. fans and if you listen close, beneath those unforgettable lyrics and melodies, all his songs had a sweet little swing to them. This swing thing led me to become on of the original members of the Manhattan Transfer. They veered off into modern jazz and I went after Bob Wills and I've been chasing him ever since.

The Best
I love this, Gene is great. I had no idea he did this kind of music, I have several old Manhatten Transfer and Bob Wills Vinyl Albums [dating myself] but not till I found this on CD Baby, was i aware of this. Both Gene and CD Baby are fantastic!!!!

Outstanding! A musical treasure of Western Swing.
It is a pleasure to listen to Gene Pistilli. The arrangements are outstanding and each song is a treasure of Western Swing. It is hard to pick a favorite song from this album-they are all great.

Awesome!!!
I just had to write a review of this album - it is just so good! I have not enjoyed a swing recording so much, sine I first heard Asleep at the Wheel sing Choo Choo Ch' Boogie, 20-25 years ago. That might sound like an overstatement, but its not. I have a large collection of western swing CDs (approx. 400), and I love them all, but really, this album is something else - in my aopinion, it takes western swing to a new level. I love 'Waltz through Texas' - it is one of my favourite songs, & he does it perfectly. And what a version of 'Sioux City Sue'! There is not a single track on this set that is not excellent - vocally & instrumentally. The backing musicians are exemplary in their work, & as producer of the album, Gene knew just hoe to guide them to get the results that he wanted for this CD. Like mant others I'm sure, I lament the loss of the Manhattan Transfer into modern Jazz, but boy, am I glad Gene Pistilli chose the path of Western Swing. Bob Wills would love this CD! Let's have more like this please Gene.
