Jerry Swallow - Teleride
Artist: Jerry Swallow
From The Diamonds to Tanya Tucker to "Teleride." Jerry Swallow has paid his dues as
a musician. As a very young man he got his start with the surf group The Diamonds and then had a
five year stint as Tanya Tucker's lead guitar player. There was plenty in between of course, that's
an abbreviated history of a man that has traveled a storied and long road to where he is now. So
where is he now? He currently plays in the group Diamondback and brings you this amazing solo CD
With a world of experience and professional gigs behind him, Jerry Swallow
really cuts loose on this album. Swallow's colorful and varied experiences as a musician quickly
becomes evident in his music. He is able to craft a unique style of surf-instro-rock-country-r &
b that remains consistently strong throughout the entire listen.
Jerry's sound is a clear,
stinging, echoing one that is synonymous with the Telecaster guitar and surf-instro music. That's
not all though, the man is not one dimensional, oh no. The blend of genres that the artist uses is
prolific to say the least. If you like the fat chords, or the loud and biting ones that cut like a
knife, Jerry does it all and more with a certain refinement that can only be found with those
specially gifted musicians.
Who needs coffee in the morning when all you have to do is pop in
Jerry Swallow's "Teleride" ? It's totally energizing and it really rocks. Just wait until you hear
the versions of "Walk Don't Run" and "Apache", wow! I am used to hearing boring note for note cover
renditions of the same songs over and over again. This is a real treat. The basic elements of the
song are intact but Jerry gives it all a different flavor and sound with his fabulous blend of
styles. He attacks the songs with fervor and changes the whole number into a new and refreshing
version that's all his own.
This is a triumphant solo release that deserves world-wide attention
from the surf-instro scene, and I am certain that it will.
