Guy Schwartz & The New Jack Hippies
Bluesguy's Birthday Jam   
Buy It! for $11.99

They had come to pay tribute to a Texas legend on his 50th birthday. It was quite a concert! Gloria Edwards, the soul queen of Texas sang one of Guy's songs. Calvin Owens, who was B.B. King's band leader for 30 years, couldn't wait to blow trumpet on one of Guy's 14 chord blues ballads, and was introduced so spontaneously that the local radio jock couldn't get to the stage in time for a proper introduction. E.P. Vallejo, Kool B, Jimmy Deen.... They were all there - rockers, rappers, bluesmen, folkies and every type of musician, entertainer and songwriter one could imagine. Guy Schwartz had worked with them all, and anyone could tell that he was enjoying the party!

Recorded live at earthwire.net with special guests Calvin Owens, Gloria Edwards, Sandy Hickey, Jimmy Deen, E.P. Vallejo, Kool B, Rick Lee, Kingfish Keith, JABBER, Nelson Mills III, more...

Guy Schwartz & The New Jack Hippies
Live at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar
Buy It! for $9.99

Recorded 9/24/99 in Houston, Texas, USA - According to Guy, this was "the first time we ever had the convergence of all three of the necessary ingredients... We brought a recorder, we played really well, and the live board mix was good enough. There were a few unexpected jams, and some songs that none of us had planned to do. It was a great night!"  (NJH002)

Buy It! for $9.99

Psychedelic instrumental groove sounds!  Roger Tausz has too much spare time on his hands, and he often fills it with the writing and recording of these "bass ditties". Some are destined to become songs, while others remain intact as instrumental gems ranging from ambient to funk to jazz.  Bass players will love this CD for the amazingly layered, multi-tracked basses which make up the majority of the sound. The rest of us just groove to the sounds!

"After the shows, I like to sit back with a guitar in one hand and a beer in the other.

This is one for the ladies to listen to late at night when they're thinking about ME!"  (NJH012)

Guy Schwartz - Lessons of the Past
Buy It! for $9.99

Here's a CD full of Guy Schwartz' best work from 1975-1995, most of which has never before been released on CD. When Schwartz resumed his recording career in 1995, this was the first thing he wanted to do, so that his young daughter's friends would understand that he made music 'for real'. His old 12" vinyl records had not impressed these kids at all, since all of their favorite music came on CDs. (NJH014)
