THE DON DIEGO TRIO GREETINGS FROM AUSTIN Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
February 2017. For the second time in a row, The Don Diego Trio was nominated for the "Rockabilly band" category in the Ameripolitan Awards in Austin, TX. It's the best occasion to book some shows in the Austin area, have a cultural trip and a recording session. And since, during that week, a lot of good artists and friends all over the US were in town, why not to invite them to join the band in a studio? The idea of a recording session was born: a music postcard from Texas, "Greetings from Austin". A 100% Austin sound-a-like record.

"Greetings from Austin" is a postcard. We all know the world-famous graffiti with that written on it. And this record is a souvenir from that country and of that trip. A journey shared with other friends. That's the reason why a lot of them were invited to join the session. It's the super young and talented (and 100% Texans!)Kristyn Harris the first guest. She has become an affirmed star in the western swing genre and she's one of the best voices you can find. The tune she is singing comes from the Bob Wills repertoire, and it's "My window faces the south" what we are talking about. In the same song you will find the participation of the guitar virtuoso Chris Casello. Detroit- born and for a long time living in Nashville, he's playing two killer lap-steel solos, competing with Mario and Diego's playing. And we're proud to say that both Chris and Kristyn won the Ameripolitan 2017 Awards in their respective categories! Let's go ahead with the guests - talking about Californian outlaw singer Mike Maddux. He comes from the "Ponderosa Aces" band and he's a great friend of the Trio. He sings a tune Diego wrote a long time ago in Italian, that's why Lunedì becomes Monday. And the real postcard is sent by one of the most historic Austin singer: Mrs. Teri Joyce. A self-penned song talking about Austin day and night life, about its pubs, venues and, of course, music! Last but not least, the record features Memphis son John Whittemore on the pedal steel and Italian (but long time settled in Austin) pianist Massimo Gerosa. They all work together to realise what the real country sound is, giving the whole session a typical Honky Tonk atmosphere.
