Album Notes
"Danny Boy" is a traditional Irish song that may never have been performed as a Latin-jazz ballad before, but it's sung and played here with respect and sensitivity. It's a beautiful and enduring composition, and exceptional works like it are often very flexible--they shine when played in a variety of ways.
Skip Morris is a professional singer with a deep love of jazz. He's worked as a studio and event singer and guitarist, but most of his performing has been in clubs and for concerts. He's taught guitar at the college level and for the past ten years, Skip has written the "Player to Player" column for JUST JAZZ GUITAR magazine.
Skip performs a gig or two every week, sometimes solo, but often in trios or quartets. He plays almost strictly jazz now, but because he played professionally in all sorts of groups from country to blues to pop, these eventually influenced his jazz both in the songs he chooses and the way he plays them.

Exquisite Creativity
I enjoyed this creative rendition of Danny Boy. A few years ago, I recorded a "Joni meets Jimmy" version of Danny Boy with my voice and Hendrix style guitar from Jeff Severson, but I think this exquisitely creative version has mine beat by an Irish mile! PS: The short audio clip is well chosen but can't do the track've got to hear the riffs and high notes on this one.
