Product Notes

Three black bungalows: Joe Lewis, vocals, guitar, and percussion John Chiodini, guitar, bass, mandolin, arrangements With cameo appearances by: Alexis Kelley, background vocals Nicole Mitchell, flute Paul Tavenner, percussion Ed Vodicka, accordion Jimmie Wood, harmonica The Back Story: One afternoon Lauri Chiodini, one of my art students, came into my office and saw a guitar leaning up against the wall. "You play guitar?" she said excitedly. "My dad plays guitar, the two of you should get together and jam sometime..." I nodded yes and then reviewed one of her assignments. The next day Lauri popped in and said, "How about dinner Thursday night?" "Ah.... ... o ...kay." She promptly gave me her family's address. "How's 5:30?" Okay, imagine this scenario, your daughter comes home from school and says the chair of the art department plays guitar and the two of you should get together and jam. Oh, did I mention, she never heard me play? Thursday night came, I drove over to their house, rang the bell, the door opens and lining the walls are gold and platinum albums, cassette tapes, and CDs. I immediately think, this guy is really for real and I'm just a guy that plays his own songs. Lauri introduces me to John and mother Ginger. We have a wonderful Italian dinner that I find difficult to eat because of my nerves. I learn he was Natalie Cole's big band guitarist ... Now it's impossible to even think about dessert. John asks to see my instruments. I brought a Martin 016 New Yorker and Gibson ES 250 (that belonged to Elmer Snowden). He pulls out one of his Gibsons and begins to play. His music is fantastic. He was into kind of a Samba hot Jazz thing at that time. I try to follow and stumble along, dropping in a couple of notes here and there. After a few minutes - that seemed like an hour or two - he looks at me and says, "Let's hear one of your tunes." I don't remember which tune I played - he had no problem following me. He asked me to play a second number. Afterwards we both just sat there for a few minutes and then John said, "You should record that stuff." Two weeks later we were in E3 Studios, recording. That was in late 1998. Fifteen years later we finally finished the project. A special thanks to Lauri Chiodini for introducing me to her Dad. And John, thank you for having the faith and vision in my music to hang in there and complete the project with me.
