Ten Foot Tall
TFT has just completed a 6 song CD with multiple Grammy nominated engineer and producer David Ivory (Including performances by Pablo Baptista, percussionist w/Alicia Keyes.) Blues Rock review had this to say:
Get Back on the Highway has a homey feel to it. It’s an album that makes one feel a cozy sense of belonging. And even though it’s just 6 songs, it certainly packs a punch as well. There’s no filler here, just solid tracks that fulfill. This is friendly music, and listening to it makes you feel like you’d be right at home hanging out with the members of the band. Through their music they seem down-to-earth, but not in a way that diminishes their legitimate musical clout. All the members are experienced musicians that truly hold their own when it comes to making music. Together, they create a cool but punchy vibe that serves as both intriguing and entertaining.
"On Get Back on the Highway, Ten Foot Tall Band weaves heartfelt songs focusing on the follies so typical to life while still creating a sense of hope and progress (the pertinent example being the name of the title track itself). The record, with its playful groove organ, seasoned guitar licks, and familiar vocals, the fun is sure to last longer."

Start in New York, travel up the mountains and check out the view, go to Chicago, then glide down the Mississippi and flop in new Orleans. Funk in our feet, Blues in our Gut, Jazz in our heart and Love on our mind.
Song-Based improvisational shout at the devil Bluesy Jam Rock Band. Acoustic, Electric, Drive all night mountain Jazz. If Lowell George and Stevie Ray Vaughn sat in with the Allman Brothers with Dr. John on the piano and Susan Tedeschi sitting in it might sound like Ten Foot Tall.
