I read this at rollingstone.com:
Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks' new album Selected Shorts boasts contributions from Hicks' fellow iconoclasts Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Van Dyke Parks and head Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes. Set for release October 26th, the thirteen-track concoction of jazz, swing and folk features the veteran Hicks backed by a band composed of legendary drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan) and original Hot Licks violinist Sid Page, as well as some female call-and-response provided by the Lickettes.
The follow-up to 2000's Beatin' the Heat -- which featured Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Brian Setzer and Rickie Lee Jones -- Selected Shorts is just the tenth LP of new material in Hicks' thirty-five-year recording career, a deliberate pace he's happy to maintain. "I used to pick up my guitar and write songs every day," he says. "I don't really do that much now."
This gentleman keeps some extremely advanced company. Time for some research.
