Dan Hicks - vocals, Louis Aissen reeds, Brian Cooke keyboard, Paul Robinson - guitar, Brian Simpson - drums
Throughout his decades-long career, Dan Hicks stood as one of contemporary music's true eccentrics. While steeped in folk, his acoustic sound knew few musical boundaries, drawing on country, call-and-response vocals, jazz phrasing, and no small amount of humor to create a distinctive, albeit sporadic, body of work that earned him a devoted cult following.
About Bayside Jazz, his side project to the Hot Licks, "It's a style with plenty of room, and I've been wanting to do this as a separate endeavor for quite some time. And don't be surprised if you hear some new lyrics here and there in these songs."
