Product Description

Tom Principato reminisces about Blazing Telecasters and Danny Gatton: Danny Gatton and I did this concert in a series of sporadic appearances around the Washington, DC area which we called Blazing Telecasters. I had already known Danny for about 10 years at that point, and he was well on his way to establishing himself as not only a dominant force on the Washington, D.C. guitar and music scene, but along with Roy Buchanan was earning a reputation as pretty much one of the two best guitarists D.C. had seen then or since. For me, I was just starting out as a solo bandleader. I had been playing around Washington in a number of different sideman situations, and now was very excited about having my own band, and writing my own musical agenda. I was itching to get out and spread my wings, meet some challenges, and try something new. One of the first things that I thought of was to try and coax Danny out of (semi-) retirement to play again, and have an opportunity to play with one of my heroes. Our common ground was the love of classic masters of the guitar like Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Les Paul, and Charlie Christian. All of these influences would come swirling out on stage at any given moment when we would play together...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Great Album, But A Good Listen 20 Jun. 2011
By Misterian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
With a few brief exceptions, "Blazing Telecasters" seems a bit of a misnomer for this album. Tom and Danny share a wide range of musical styles, and much of it is tamer than the title might suggest. Don't get me wrong - this is a terrific CD. There's plenty of smart, tasteful guitar throughout, as you'd expect from two such bonafide musicians. There are some smooth jazz and jump numbers, R&B sounding tracks, blues-ish efforts, country-tinged ballads, and a little rock. Neither of these guitarists have ever settled on a single style, so it's not surprising that this collaboration is a little all over the place too.

3.0 out of 5 stars danny gatton not on a tele 13 Mar. 2006
By M. Conlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
About as good a recording you will get from the house board and the liner notes indicate most fans should forgive this shortfall.

Gatton's playing is great though he doesn't play a telecaster on this particular night? Principatos playing is smooth but often washed in effects. (common 80's blues sound). Enjoyable as a reference for Danny's playing but won't make it into any of my playlists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danny's full of fire. 6 May 2006
By P.J. Le Faucheur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gattons solo on "Honey Hush (Talking Woman Blues)" is totally explosive. The double stops he throws at you are like bullets from a sub-machine gun. The other tracks are also great but the first track is a masterpiece.

The sound quality is very thin and lacking bass but because of Danny's playing i feel moved to give it 5 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Still Blazing! 17 April 2015

How I miss Danny Gatton! I was lucky enough to see his in the early 90's, and this movie made my evening.
