William Lee Ellis - The Full Catastrophe (CD)
Release Date: 07/07/06
With 'The Full Catastrophe' - a record declared one of the year's best in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll - William Lee Ellis works the roots of American music and twists them to his own designs. In 16 original songs that range from gospel-blues to rockabilly, from Delta swing to haunting guitar instrumentals, his second solo recording brings together the pieces of the American music puzzle that has been his life. Guest appearances by Memphis music legends Paul Burlison and Jim Dickinson, as well as by Tony Ellis - Bill's father and a former member of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys - highlight this exploration of the heart of American music traditions, produced by Ellis's musical partner and multi-instrumentalist Larry Nager.
