Description

Blues and soul music fans know that the soundtrack to early rock' n' roll ran on three-minute instrumentals with sax in the lead, and was directly related to 1950s and 1960s New Orleans R&B hits, along with that deep-fried wildness that came from Memphis. With this history lesson in mind, old school rock 'n' soul saxophonist and singer Terry Hanck makes perfect sense."I write songs that you think you've heard for years," says the South Florida-based Hanck, who's got suave movie-star looks and a good time presence that immutably anchors the old-style R&B he adores.

As Living Blues writer Lee Hildebrand testified, "Hanck is one of the most formidable saxophonists in the blues and soul business. He has a virile tone and attack and an uncanny command of upper-register notes." But, whether it is a joyous jump blues romp or a steamy slow dance of a stroll--this is the kind of music that has mattered to the tall tenor man all his life...

Elvin Bishop, an alumnus of seminal American blues-rock group the Paul Butterfield Blues Band came to hear Terry Hanck's band. "He heard the band in 1972," Hanck recalls, "and asked both the harmonica player and I to join, knowing he was only going to pick one guy. So I said no. And the harmonica player said yes." In 1976, Bishop brought Hanck to Miami to play on what became his classic album, Struttin' My Stuff, and which included his chart-topping smash hit "Fooled Around And Fell In Love." Hanck was asked again to join the band, and as Hanck reveals "I said 'no' again, like an idiot. I had a single out with my band and I had a false sense of security. But in 1977 he asked one more time and I said 'yes,' finally. I joined when the band was on top. I went from riding around in a potato-chip truck to limousines."

For over a decade, Bishop provided Hanck a worldwide stage to growl, squonk, soar and soothe on his tenor. In 1987, Hanck bid adieu to his friend, and formed his own group."Terry Hanck is a fine vocalist, an amazing showman and my favorite sax player," asserts Bishop today. That fact was borne out on the 2011 Delta Groove live album, Elvin Bishop's Raising Hell Revue.
