Rhine Town Dixie Preachers release new album ‘bout Time! with Rob Agerbeek and featuring Adrienne West and Gaynel Hodge (former ‘Platters)

The RTDP has recorded a new 14 track album ‘bout Time! at the well-known Farmsound Studio (where the “Best of British Jazz” albums were produced). Our guests include Rob Agerbeek, one of Europe’s finest jazz pianists and the top American singers Adrienne West and Gaynel Hodge (co-founder and vocalist of the ‘Platters’). The repertoire covers the period from Chicago style classic jazz to the Roaring Twenties/Golden Age of Jazz, the swing period, the jazz music that accompanied the rise of the musicals and movies, the American Songbook Repertoire and a touch of blues. The text and photos of the 8-page CD booklet are shown below.
The CD has featured already in many regional radio programmes with critical acclaim. A number of other popular radio stations are also planning feature programmes.

Quotes from press reviews and other sources tell the story: ..a CD with International allure.. what a wonderful CD, ..pianist Rob Agerbeek shows his versatility and talent in soloing and ensemble playing in a wide range of styles: blues, swing and boogie woogie, ..a magnificent interpretation of “What A Wonderful World” by Adrienne West, .. Gaynel Hodge’s voice is perfectly suited for “Everyday I Have The Blues” and ..our compliments to the front line and rhythm group.

The 14 sound samples of the CD are shown below and the track “Undecided” is accessible in full on YouTube
