The RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES make available the recordings of Otto Bash, a Nashville based drummer and sometime vocalist. Bash was 29 years old, and it was the dawn of the rock ‘n’ roll era, when he briefly by chance stepped into the recording spotlight in 1955. This album offers a fascinating insight into the musically pivotal year, and the album offers a weird and wonderful mix of jazz, pop and rock, veering from cool to hot, square to hip, corny to cutting edge. If you can imagine a blend of Boyd Bennet, Tiny Bradshaw, and the jumping sound the combos of these artists made, then Otto Bash will be your cup of tea.
