An unaccompanied compendium of Cliff Gallup-style jazz runs, Chet Atkins picking and blistering Jimmy Bryant-esque lead, Brian sounds like he’s playing off the cuff here. But he isn’t.
“I had all those little parts written,” says Setzer. “I recorded them on an old cassette recorder, but just because I can hear them doesn’t mean that I can play them again. So I write them out, sewing it all together like you would string a necklace, then memorise it.
“A song like that is all thought out unlike, say, Blue Moon Of Kentucky where the solo is improvised.”
