This the debut CD from the Hot Jazzy Fiddle-ist and vocalist from the westen swing power trio Hot Club of Cowtown and Bob Dylan's touring band. Elana [James'] throaty violin solos arrived in terse, epigrammatic phrases with a sprint, every so often, into chromatic harmony. She also sang in a breathy, un-self-conscious voice that made every double-entendre seductive. --Jon Pareles New York Times As a featured instrumentalist (then known as Elana Fremerman) within the Hot Club of Cowtown, the viol

The Essential Bob Wills might more accurately be called The Essential Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys.

Born in 1905 in Kosse, Texas, Bob Wills was the first child of ten. A great uncle was a fine fiddle player and it was hoped that Bob would emulate him. Bob's first public appearance playing fiddle was in 1915 - his father had been booked to play and sent the ten-year old Bob ahead with the instruments. When Wills senior arrived he was too drunk to perform. Bob took over. The audience, in the mood for fun was soon out on the floor. Bob's repertoire was only about six tunes and he played them unti

Bob Wills is the king of Western swing, a country music hall-of-famer and honky-tonk legend whose place in the country pantheon is rivaled only by Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams Sr. Starting in the '30s, Wills pioneered a new country sound that merged his Texas frontier fiddle with big band, Dixieland, and the blues, creating country swing with his band the Texas Playboys (and inspiring a young Merle Haggard and George Jones). Recent Wills compilations are uniformly strong and essential, and n

Cooley was one of the more curious characters in the annals of country music. In the mid-1940s, Cooley was riding high: he was king of the Southern California ballroom circuit; a radio, TV, and movie star; and, according to legend, winner of a battle of the bands with Bob Wills. Following this 1943 victory over Wills's Playboys, Cooley declared himself ''King of Western Swing'' and signed a recording contract with OKeh, the results of which are found here. These 20 songs cover territory from mer
