THE MEMPHIS HANG

THE MEMPHIS HANG

1969-12-31

MEMPHIS HANG The Memphis Hang is the perfect disc for a laid back Sunday afternoon with a cold beverage on the front porch. This effort from friends Jim Shearer on Tuba & Charlie Wood on Keys and vocals will make you leave all your cares behind. This disc will transport its listeners back to the care free days of the 1940’s. Most Tracks are covers including Thelonious Monk’s “Well You Needn’t” Charlie Mingus classic “Goodbye Porkpie Hat” and the playful “Not When I’m Drinkin” originally preformed by blues man Big Bill Broozey. Jim & Charlie probably sum up this disc when they say; “This CD represents what happens when music lovers and friends get together with no preconceived notions. Our only plan was to hang out, have fun and create music unconstrained by the demands of the commercial music industry.” Thus, The Memphis Hang was born. How very fortunate we are.
