Editorial Reviews

So let's waltz back to New Year's Eve, l978. Tonight the Cellar Door club, sold out weeks in advance, is owned by Danny Gatton's instrumental aggregate, the Redneck Jazz Explosion. The crowd has come to see not only the guitarist presenting his virtuosic wares in all instrumental jazz setting but his pairing with pedal steel maestro Buddy Emmons. To quote Ralph Heibutzki from his 2003 biography, "Unfinished Business-The Life Times of Danny Gatton," the December 31, l978, Cellar Door gig has assumed legendary proportions for its place in Gatton history. Swearing you were there is akin to saying you saw the Beatles at the Cavern Club or caught the Yardbird's hot, sweaty nights at the Marquee." It's a great tribute to Danny that Buddy Emmons, who had not been on the road for years, did hit the highways with the Explosion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But Get Volume 1 Instead March 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
While it's hard to go wrong with anything by Gatton, or Emmons for that matter, and there is a lot of great playing here, much of it appears to assembled from whatever was left over after gleaning out the best tracks for the first edition. Also, unlike volume I, many of the mixes on the second volume sound amateurish. Still there are a couple of notable exceptions: "Ode To Billy Joe" & "Canadian Sunset" are really fun. These two "five star" tracks were originally released as bonus tracks on the first CD release of the much earlier recording, "Redneck Jazz," and were mixed and mastered with Gatton himself in the room.

Among most Gatton aficionados the following Recordings are generally considered to be his best. The first two are Danny burning in front of a live audience, and the last two are his best studio recordings:
1. Redneck Jazz Explosion Vol. I- (or Redneck Jazz Explosion - the originl orange cover release, same thing)
2. Humbler: Live - This is Danny playing some of the best Rockabilly guitar ever with singer Robert Gordon.
3. Relentless - With Joey De Francesco
4.88 Elmira St.. - His best commercial studio album, check out "In My Room" - awesome!

Also notable are "Unfinished Business" and "American Music.

4.0 out of 5 stars the real deal August 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd probably give this a 3.5 if that were an option, but I'll round up. I like a lot about both volumes (this review can be applied to Vol. I). This is not the burning guitar of a recording like 88 Elmira St. - there are very few guitar tricks, and that's one of the things I like about it. Danny and Buddy Emmons are both master musicians, fluent in many styles of music, and for most of these two CDs, they dedicate themselves to playing jazz. It's not jazz-lite, or smooth jazz - listen to them play Clifford Brown's "Joy Spring" and Horace Silver's "Song For My Father". Who else but Danny would throw a quote from the "Rock Around the Clock" guitar solo into a stone bop classic like "Joy Spring?" You don't hear a whole lot in the way of traditional jazz vocabulary, and that's what makes this so interesting and refreshing - it's jazz viewed through a prism of country, blues, and rock. I'm sure some jazz purists would hate it, but that's what I love about it. Jazz has always been an inclusive genre, and with these two volumes, a new wrinkle has been added to the fabric of jazz. There's a feeling of honest music being made, and risks being taken, and in the end, that's what jazz is all about. We need more Redneck Jazz!!

If you don't know about Danny Gatton, you need to! But if you don't you prolly wouldn't be reading this review so I feel like I'm preachin' to the choir here! Dig it! This CD is OUT OF FREAKING CONTROL!!! A "MUST OWN" for ANY Gatton fan or appreciator of fine guitar playing.

Also featuring Buddy Emmons!!! 'Nuff Said!

This Disc, along with Vol.1, finally makes available (thru legitimate source) the entire new years eve Cellar Door DC shows.
This and "Unfinished Business" are desert island quality must-haves, IMHO
