That video sure is fun to watch!
yep...sure does swing.
Love it. At some point I'll have a big body Gretsch.
I read an article about Brian Setzer some time back...his guitar guy said Brian likes "old" strings on most of his guitars and that sometimes he has to steal them away to get new string strings put on them. Apparently a part of his sound.
When that album (The Dirty Boogie) came out in 1998 I was all for it seeing as how Setzer inspired me to start playing guitar when I was a kid.
But that the BSO can do so much more than what the lead single showed us can be found with the deeper album tracks of the BSO where Setzer shows his talent as not just a guitarist but also as an arranger as he wrote all those horn parts himself.
PROPER big band stuff here.
I have one of his live CD's in the car.
I sometimes listen to it & nothing else for a week or two at a time.
I just watched Rumble In Brixton (2004 live concert and yes, I know, it was the Stray Cats).
The missus asked 'Are we going to watch something else?'
I responded 'Yes in a few minutes'
The concert lasted over an hour and I watched it all
I'm a fan but was unaware he did a Sun Records tribute (with some other sidemen) and then did an album of Sun-style rockabilly originals with the sidemen.
Apparently there's a Gretsch forum as crazy as this one is about Teles - saw some discussion of the Sun project there.
