Tiffany Transcriptions, Vol. 4

by: Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys

"You're From Texas" is the subtitle of this volume, which more or less tells the story of the content -- all songs from or having to do with Texas, including Cindy Walker's "You're From Texas" and "Blue Bonnet Lane," N. Howard "Jack" Thorp's "Little Joe the Wrangler" (one of the earliest cowboy songs ever put down on sheet music), the anonymous "Beaumont Rag," and the traditional "Red River Valley." The music is country, but the approach is a mix of jazz and dance band, and the beat, along with the richness of the arrangements, is infectious. Anyone with a special appreciation for the jazz or country sides of Western swing will love this volume. ~ Bruce Eder
