Ask a question about this product

In the late 70’s after being away from music for 10 or 15 years I contracted Gary Blossom and Frankie McWhorter. We had a jam session inviting a lot of our western swing musicians that we had worked with in the 50’s. I formed a western swing band out of that group called “Over the Hill Gang.” We wouldn’t work over one day a month and played what we wanted to play. We played for ourselves. If anyone showed displeasure we would refund their money – No one asked! We played for three or four years to full houses. This also formed the nucleus of my very successful “Oklahoma Swing Project.” Recently, Jai Hutcherson of Allegro Sound Lab wanted me to gather a bunch of older western swing musicians for a recording. If you look at the stellar musicians on this recording, you will admit that they are the greatest going. They have worked on all of the top western swing bands, some dating to the 40’s.Their total musical experience well exceeds 450 years!

Enjoy, Pat Jacobs
