ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chicago\'s Skip Towne & The Greyhounds personify hard driving, heartfelt classic blues, jazz, swing, and ballads. Their brand new CD features the 10 piece band playing jazz and blues, as well as an updated cover of Peter\'s gold hit, \" The Curly Shuffle\". This cd spotlights \"Johnny Showtime\" Janowiak (Liquid Soul) on trombone, Kenny Anderson (The Ohio Players) on trumpet, and John \"Phloss\" Rice on slide guitar (Blind Boys of Alabama, Mavis Staples, Wilco). The band has been regularly performing acoustically as a 3 PIECE up to an electric 10 PIECE BAND around the Midwest and frequently in Chicago area clubs. The Band also plays for any type of Concert, Festival, Wedding, Private and Corporate Event. Skip Towne & The Greyhounds\' members can be found appearing anywhere from People Magazine to VH1 (with William Shatner), Live Radio (WJKL 94.3 FM \"Hambone\'s Blues Hour\"), TV, and even Movie Soundtracks (\"Bulletproof Heart\" in science fiction thriller, \"Changingman\"). Don\'t forget their stints with Jump\'n the Saddle Band (..1 INTERNATIONAL HIT with \"THE CURLY SHUFFLE\" (million selling, #15 Billboard), Mickey & the Memories, Midnight, Traffic Jam, Night Flight, RPM, Small Shiny Things, Liquid Soul and The Ohio Players. \"Brother John\" has toured and played world-wide with such greats as Eric Clapton, Maceo Parker, Black Crowes, George Benson, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor and Otis Rush from the \"TONIGHT SHOW\" to the CHICAGO BLUES FESTIVAL! The large, dynamic vocals of Peter Quinn are a must to be heard. He sings the classics, the ballads, and ALL the blues with such hard pushing drive and emotion that crowds always fall for Peter\'s special delivery! The power-packed \"Big House Horns\" consists of veteran saxman, Tom \"Shoes\" Trinka, joined by Peter Quinn (harmonica). Johnny \"Showtime\" Janowiak (Trombone), Kenny Anderson (trumpet) and Linda Van Dyke (bari sax). The Big House Boys excel at solo and section work. Everyone will hear a lifetime of devotion to the blues, jazz and rock in the incredible, emotional guitar playing of Harry Reinhart. He is well known for his work with Traffic Jam, Midnight and The Moonrays (2002 WXRT best instrumental CD of the year). Radiant chords and smokin\', tasty solos are his specialty. Brother John Kattke has played with Eric Clapton, Steve Miller, the Black Crowes and acquired ringing endorsements from many other world renown musicians including Led Zeppelin vocalist, Robert Plant, \"You play a mean guitar!\" And George Benson, \"You\'re fearless! I thought I was fearless!\" A vital component of Buddy Guys and Koko Taylor bands, and prior leader of Otis Rush\'s band for three years, John is a brilliant vocalist, guitarist and pianist. From Steam-Train Rhythms to Chicago Shuffle Beats to soulful slow Blues numbers, the pairing of Jay Olaszek\'s (Small Shiny Things, Grasslands Acoustic Rock’’n Roll Trio, Ex-Five Year Jacket) bass and Jim Murray\'s (Nightflight, RPM, Soul Shakedown, Michael McDermott) drums make the music a total groove. This one was recorded live at Shady Shores Resort, Sister Lakes, MI and The Hyatt Grand Ball Room, Chicago, IL. and features covers of Jaco Pastorius, Herbie Hancock, Myles Davis, Louis Jordan, Peter Green, Los Lobos, Junior Wells, Albert King, Peter\'s hit \"The Curly Shuffle\" and many more.

Gotta have it
Like Lyle Lovett's Large Band with a pure Chicago attitude. Unreal musicians playing timeless music. They're a must see and all of these albums are a must own. Even though I keep my MP3 player on random, I keep these discs in the car for easy reach when I need a fix. Buy it and enjoy!
