JEFF BARNHART and SPATS LANGHAM - Thanks for the Melody

JEFF BARNHART and SPATS LANGHAM - Thanks for the Melody
CD / Product Number: LACD355

Between them Jeff Barnhart and Spats Langham have been on more LAKE CDs than any other currently working artists, but this is only their second album together (previous CD ‘We Wish We Were Twins’ LACD342). Jeff is a consummate musician able to play in a variety of piano styles Classical to Stride, from Boogie to Ragtime. He visits the UK at least twice a year where he has built up an enviable following and when he gets a chance to team up with Spats. String player, Spats, has been a member of The Temperance Seven, The Charleston Chasers, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra as well as fronting and recording with his own Hot Combination and Hot Fingers. His guitar playing owes much to the 1920s and 30s players like Eddie Lang and his banjo playing recalls Harry Reser. Both are outstanding musicians and Just Jazz Magazine summed up their previous CD as “two seasoned musicians singing and playing their hearts out on a great selection of tunes”. It was a winning formula which they have used again on this album.
