Chuck Leavell Chuck Gets Big with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band Vinyl 2LP

Chuck Leavell, former member of The Allman Brothers Band, and the principal touring keyboardist, and de facto musical director, of The Rolling Stones releases the new album, Chuck Gets Big. "In 2011, I had the pleasure of doing a concert with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band, a 17-piece brass orchestra of some of the finest musicians in Germany. Three talented arrangers created charts for some twelve songs I had chosen from my works with the Allman Brothers Band; Sea Level and the Rolling Stones, as well as my own compositions. Chuck Gets Big is the result of this experience, and is my latest release on BMG records."

Backed by the Frankfurt Radio Big Band, Chuck takes us on a musical journey through his 40+ year career as one of rock's top keyboard players. He covers his lifelong idol Ray Charles with "Losing Hand" and "Georgia on My Mind." Chuck also reaches back into his beginnings with the Allmans playing "Southbound" and "Statesboro Blues" and then moves on to his jazz/rock fusion band Sea Level with "King Grand" and "Living in a Dream." Of course Chuck couldn't leave Mick, Keith, Ron, and Charlie behind and includes Rolling Stones' rockers "Tumbling Dice" and "Honky Tonk Woman." He rounds out the album with a few originals of his own and throws in two rhythm and blues classics "Route 66" and "Compared to What."

There aren't many artists who can perform rock, rhythm, and blues backed by a big band and retain the song's spirit. But true to Chuck's rock legacy he does exactly that here!
