Roy Book Binder feat. Knocky Parker 2006 The Tampa Sessions '79

We made these sides back in 1979. It seems like a long time ago. The Knocky Parker sessions bring back great memories. During rehearsal, Knocky was his excitable, flamboyant self. I was worried he was playing too much piano. I later realized he was trying all sorts of stff and experimenting with the tunes. At the recording studio the next day, he knew exactly what he wanted to do. After each take, the engineer would ask me if I wanted to have a listen. I would ask Knocky and he would say, "We'll hear it plenty when the record comes out. What keys the next one in?" Needless to say, we recorded the four tracks in thirty minutes! I only wish I did more recordings with Knocky, who began his career with the Light Crust Dough Boys in 1937.
I hope you all enjoy this look back to a session that brings back fond memories of a moment long gone.
