Album Review

If you really miss Danny Gatton, then discovering a Telecaster slinger like Redd Volkaert is one of the few things that can assuage the abiding grief just a little bit. Like Gatton, Volkaert is not only possessed of superhuman chops but is also a master of multiple American music idioms — he can play jazz, country, rock, Western swing, and even note-for-note replicas of Earl Scruggs bluegrass banjo licks. On his third solo album he continues to explore a variety of country and country-related genres with his trademark blend of supreme taste, monstrous virtuosity, and sly wit. Particularly noteworthy are a deceptively simple-sounding arrangement of the great Buddy Emmons twin-guitar workout "Raisin' the Dickens," a startlingly dark cover version of "The Letter," a flat-out rocking version of "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line," and several delicious slabs of honky tonk and Western swing, as well as a great program-closing prison weeper. Volkaert's voice is nothing to write home about, but it's perfectly serviceable, and when it's delivering couplets like "Just because I don't care/Doesn't mean I don't understand," you'll swear it's perfect just the way it is. This guy is a national treasure.

Redd Rocks!

Redd Volkaert is one amazing guitar player, but it's nice to seem him adding his vocals to more of his songs. He has played with some of the greats including Merle Haggard, Ray Benson, Clinton Gregory, George Jones, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley - and the list goes on. He's been sticking around Austin a lot these days where he continues his hot guitar playing. This is his (I think) 4th CD and he keeps getting better with the years.
