A lot of we steel players are also Jazz guitar fans, and I recently found a CD that I had had for a long time and forgot about. Herb Ellis is playing with a bunch of Texas swing musicians, Herbie Remington played some nice steel, Johnny Gimble and others played fiddle, Floyd Domino played piano, and Willie Nelson even played a little guitar on it. They played mostly old standards and it's a great album in my opinion, check it out if you like this kind of music.

Just ordereded the CD, used, Prime $5 out the door. Turns out that if you have Amazon Prime you can stream 8 of the 10 songs on it for free!

It's also on Apple Music along with 27 other Herb Ellis Albums. First 3 months free and $10 a month after that. Just cancelled my CD order and listening to the album now on Apple Music.

This session was slightly infamous in musician's scuttlebutt because Ellis came into the studio with a whole lotta attitude, essentially, giving off a vibe that this music was beneath him. So, professionals that they were, everyone delivered their solos and played the music but it wasn't a fun experience. Herb Remington told me they were nevertheless impressed with Ellis' chops and swing feeling.

Reminds me that years ago I saw Herb Ellis play with Eldon Shamblin in OKC...it was interesting to see and hear them together, but to my ears it "fidn't dit" as Archie Campbell would say.
