That's my hear - KEYZONE 1350


Brock Tanner

I don't think any city had more musical talent than New Orleans - there's just so many artists to feature here. Another obscure one was Brock Tanner - whose real name may well have been "Brockington" to judge by the writer credit. And this interesting disc may well have been his only 45. Even the label Keyzone is terminally obscure. "Later On In Life" is a typical piece of rhythmic Crescent City jump up music but ListenThat's My Heart is more at home in these pages. Introduced by a strong horn flurry, Tanner's golden brown tones, featuring a good deal of vibrato, come through loud and clear. The plodding beat and a piano that weaves in and out both sound just right to me.
