What if you took 2 Texas legends, Willie Nelson and Bob
Wills, the king of Texas Western Swing, and put them
together in new elegant jazzy arrangements? That's what
we've done at Will Taylor and Strings Attached. I have to
say it's been one of the most fulfilling musical experiences
in my life. No kidding. Will has really outdone himself
this time, with gorgeous arrangements for violin, cello,
jazz trumpet, mandolin, upright bass and of course guitar.
Vocals by Steve Carter, a long-time presence on the Austin
music scene, and me.
We mounted this show a couple months ago and people sure
seem to like it. So we decided to launch a fundraising
project and see if we could raise enough money to make a CD,
and a DVD with videos of each song and documentary-style
interviews and footage from our shows and our lovely little
gardening community in South Austin.
