Terry Hanck - Kickin' in the Country
Time & Location
About The Event
For over 50 years, Terry Hanck has been treating us to his vibrant saxophone tones, played over a shifting musical landscape covering blues, R&B, and soul genres with equal dexterity. Nominated for eight Blues Music Awards in the Blues Instrumentalist – Horn category, he received the award on three occasions.
Blues and soul music fans know that the soundtrack to early rock' n' roll ran on three-minute instrumentals with sax in the lead, and was directly related to 1950s and 1960s New Orleans R&B hits, along with that deep-fried wildness that came from Memphis. With this history lesson in mind, old school rock 'n' soul saxophonist and singer Terry Hanck makes perfect sense. Clearly, Hanck has worshipped at the right Southern altars-- those of such iconic R&B brothers as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, B. B. King, Lee Allen and King Curtis. "I write songs that you think you've heard for years," says the South Florida-based Hanck, who's got suave movie-star looks and a good time presence that immutably anchors the old-style R&B he adores.
