ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SHORTY LONG is an acoustic string band with roots in the Novelty and Jazz styles of the early 20th Century. Shorty Long was founded by ukulele ace Pops Bayless and vocalist Mysterious John, after four years as founding members of the Asylum Street Spankers. Based in Austin, Texas, the band has headlined festival dates all over the country, including The Sam Houston Folk Festival, The Ukulele Hall of Fame Expo, Old Settlers Music Festival, Texas Summer Nights, Midwest Ukefest and Uketopia at the famous McCabes Guitar Store in Santa Monica, California.

"The critically acclaimed Shorty Long also focuses on novelty/jazz styles of the Twenties and Thirties; last year's Chickenboxer suggested real range and genuine comedy..."
-Austin Chronicle SXSW 2002 Roundup

"This fun and funky debut CD shows how you can get a great 'band' sound with sweet old ukuleles providing much of the musical bed. Great vocals!"
-- Jim Beloff, Flea Market Music

"...a powerhouse of ukuleles...The music is very listenable, the playing is relaxed and ebullient, but equally precise, with some nice dobro solos thrown in."
-- Paul Klemperer, Austin Arts Downtown

"If you liked Robert Crumb's Cheap Suit Serenaders, odds are you'll go for Shorty Long..."
-- John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music

"Wie auch William James IV (s. Sparte 'Old Time') ist Shorty Long bei uns komplett unbekannt und wird soviel ich weiss international nur über elderly.com vertrieben. Shorty frönt dem Hawaiian Swing der 20er und 30er Jahre und das absolut glaubhaft und ohne falsches Pathos, dafür mit einer guten Prise Jazz. Nebst Ukulelen, Kazoo, Klavier, "Doghouse Bass", Gitarre, Maracas etc. interessiert uns hier vorallem die Dobro. Der Dobroist ist kein geringerer als DER The East Side Flash, der auch schon auf der CD von William James IV zu hören ist. Er spielt 6- und 8-saitige Dobro und Shorty u.a. auch eine Resonator-Uke." --http://www.resoguitars.com/CDSites/CDS_shortylong.html
