Breau, lenny; Don Francks and Eon Henstridge
Art of Life, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: The spoken words and vocalese of Don Francks are pronounced over Lenny Breau’s cool blues guitar and walking bass of Eon Henstridge. Known as Three, they ad lib over the first 5 tracks but with coordination and humor, especially “Gum Addiction”. Francks’ rearranged lyrics on “Tea For Two” are stretch the boundaries and are nicely balanced by Lenny’s explosive solos. The addition of tap dancer Joey Hollingsworth for the final 3 songs caps a very entertaining session.
