New PT Gazell CD, "Swingin' Easy... Hittin' Hard"

PT Gazell has created a stunning new disc, Swingin Easy...Hittin Hard (Miss Max Records), that mixes elements of Jazz, Western Swing and Standard American Popular Music into a captivating collection of pure joy.

From the first note, PT announces his intention to keep your toes tapping, your head boppin and your smile firmly in place. He achieves these lofty goals on the most common of instruments, the diatonic harmonica. He explores places with this deceptively difficult little instrument in ways that delight and amaze. PT approaches this classic material and makes it sound brand new all the while respecting just what make these songs timeless. The tight little trio that accompany him, The Side Effects, create just the right groove and support for this masterwork of American Music.
