As "New York's King Of Western Swing" NOLAN BRUCE ALLENhas developed an affinity for the Texas style of swing. And what an affinity it is! He performs just like he was from the Lone Star State and even does bookings through www.lonestarband.com. 40% of net earnings from this album are slated for the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, which alone is enough for me to recommend it.The fact that it's 22 tracks of good music is just a lagniappe (see, I've already started talking like a cajun).
Veteran musician Nolan Bruce Allen is New York's King Of Western Swing Music. His current album - "Salutes The Bob Era Volume I," a fund-raiser for the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children - is dedicated to Texas band leader Bob Wills and the western swing genre that flourished in the Lone Star State. The 22 song, 70-minute CD has the down home feel of an old fashioned tube radio broadcast. Warm renditions include such tunes as "Faded Love," "Spanish Two-Step," "Little Liza Jane" and the instrumental "Texas Playboy Chimes." Available at Borders, Amazon.com and www.lonestarband.com.

"A generation before the outlaws, Western Music was all about popularity, not marginalization. NOLAN BRUCE ALLEN pays tribute to this whole time when western music fused Country, Jazz & Pop into western Swing. SALUTES THE BOB WILLS ERA IS 22 tracks from New York's King Of Western Swing on this 1st of a 3-volume set. It features such stellar players as Tommy Allsup (Buddy Holley). When a female voice is needed, it's Chris O'Connell (Asleep At The Wheel). Also from Asleep At The Wheel, Tim Alexander plays piano. Steel guitar is an important instrument in this genre and Allen uses a legend: Tom Morrell, whose Western swing resume goes back to the 50's.The rhythm section is Western Swing greats Mark Abbott (upright bass) & Greg Hardy (drums).

"You can be both retro and ambitious. Nolan Bruce Allen is making a 3-installment salute to Bob Wills that will outdistance Merle Haggard's "Tribute To The Best Damn Fiddle Player In The World" by 44 songs! The current batch uses cows, beer, moons and memories as a metaphor for the dance of love, and it's all delivered in a clear, crispy-clean voice that's a dead ringer for Gene Autry. It includes a thrilling horn solo on "Little Liza Jane", it has a sweet heart and listening will make you treat your lady nicely."

HELLO NBA. Hope you weather the winter well. I have been thoroughly enjoying many songs from your 3 long-play CD's. It certainly has a lot of heart and soul. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
"Nolan Bruce Allen or "NBA" as many refer to him, knows western swing like the back of his hand. His new album of great songs is jam-packed with a generous 22 cuts with not a clunker in the bunch. NBA leads one hell of a band on this album that includes the great Tommy Allsup on rhythm guitar and Tom Morrell on steel guitar. The band includes lead guitars, fiddles, mandolin, piano, saxophones, clarinet, upright bass and drums which make for a truly big-band western swing sound. Songs are presented in a fresh, invigorating way yet are steadfastly true to their roots. Anyone with a love of this genre cannot go wrong with this album by NBA, New York's King of Western Swing music!"

Among the 22 cuts are 2 superb instrumentals, plus an amazing hot fiddle solo on "Home In San Antone." Our favorite cut is the title tune "Blues For Dixie". "Heart To Heart Talk" is a fine duet with Chris O'Connell (formerly with Asleep At The Wheel). Good swing music for your collection!"

"I love this CD"
Editor & Publisher of Country Standard Time
"The music is fresh, has a beat, is danceable & often tells a story. It could be called Big Band C&W, but it's much more than that. On this CD, Nolan Bruce Allen (NBA) delivers over 70 minutes of authentic sounds. New York's King of Western Swing, NBA brings a bunch of talented stars from the genre to a project that eventually will span 3 volumes. Apart from great tunes, the CD offers more...40% of net earnings will benefit The National Center For Missing & Exploited Children. The tunes cover a variety of moods and subjects but all come across with a clean, authentic sound and feel. A fine duet is on cut 8. The 22 songs are really like getting 2 CD's for the money. I found this disc to be highly listenable. Recommended!"

"Very enjoyable, wonderful CD...Nolan Bruce Allen's voice lends itself to this music. Recorded by NBA in Dallas, Texas using western swing's "A" Team, possibly the best western swing musicians in the world: Tom Morrell, Randy Elmore, Rich O'Brien, Mark Abbott, Greg Hardy, Chris O'Connell, Tim Alexander, Tommy Allsup, Bob Myers and Chris McGuire! I will play each and every one of the 22 cuts on my worldwide internet radio show".

"Nolan, I especially like the way you did "Rosetta" on your CD which is more like the slower version my father did when he recorded it back in 1938."
Rosetta Wills, Turkey, TX
"This music is awesome and authentic. With a voice sometimes reminiscent of Ray Price and often evoking aural images of Tommy Duncan, NBA and producer Tom Morrell lead the all-star cast of pickers effortlessly through such immortal classics as "Yearning", "Right or Wrong", "Home is San Antone", "Blues for Dixie", "Faded Love", and 17 more. Former Asleep At The Wheel great Chris O'Connell turns in masterful singing on her "Heart to Heart Talk" duet with NBA. Western swing fans will be thoroughly pleased."

"Nolan Bruce Allen Salutes the Bob Wills Era is a great album."
Keith Scott, WVLS Radio
"This 70-minute CD finds veteran singer/guitarist Nolan Bruce Allen paying tribute to western swing's golden years. Allen doesn't pretend to re-invent the western swing wheel; whether embracing Wills' "Faded Love" or Earl "Fatha" Hines "Rosetta", he is faithful to the western swing sound of the 30's and 40's. The results are predictable and the surprises are pleasing and enjoyable! Allen (who recorded this album in Dallas) sings with a folksy, unpretentious, down-home sort of charm, which is exactly what a vocalist needs in order to perform this type of music convincingly. Seasoned collectors will find that Allen has provided a solid and rewarding tribute to western swings' golden era."
Alex Henderson, All Music Guide
"Wonderful music...I shared it with my mother and now we are both big fans of yours!"
Shelly Nelson, Atlanta GA
"Nolan Bruce Allen, New York's King Of Western Swing, makes mighty good western swing music. Rich O'Brien, who played guitars and wrote the liner notes, described the session as "one of my all-time favorite recording experiences". I first heard about it from DJ Joe Baker, who's playing it on his New Mexico radio show to enthusiastic audience response. Among the 22 cuts are 2 superb instrumentals plus an amazing hot fiddle solo on "Home in San Antone". 40% of net earnings from this project will go to the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, so you can support a worthy cause and add some good western swing music to your collection. Nolan has surrounded himself with some of today's best western swing musicians on the CD"

"Nolan Bruce Allen's (NBA) Salutes The Bob Wills Era Volume I is a wonderful album! Good songs, good voice, good musicians. The sound and voice is so "TEXAS" that its hard to imagine he's from New York state. NBA is a true member of Texas Swing and we enjoyed every song on the CD. On "Texas Radio" we only air music from Texas Artists/Groups. But we will play his music and give it lots of spins because it is so authentic!"
Eddy and Ria VeldKamp, Your Dutch Amigos
"Texas Radio" - The Netherlands
"Nolan Bruce Allen's (NBA) CD release is a 70-minute long salute to the Bob Wills Era. This is the first of a planned 3-volume set. NBA acknowledges that Bob Wills was his "biggest musical influence", and found that both shared many similar personal life experiences. Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys were one of the most popularly known Western Bands beginning in the 1930's and eventually made it to the Silver Screen movies during the 1940's. Music historian Ranger Doug (Riders In The Sky) described them as having a "snappy western image." Wills fused the Big Band sound (up to 21-piece bands), Jazz, Dixieland and Country to create the Western Swing Sound. Wills was inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1968 and died in 1975. NBA's salute was nominated for "Western Swing Album Of The Year" by the Academy Of Western Artists. There are 22 songs on this Volume I (double CD value). Many were written or co-written by Wills. The two great instrumentals include "Texas Playboy Chimes" featuring the incomparable Tom Morrell on steel guitar. Do your toes wanna tap while listening? Yep. Do you wanna dance while listening? Yep! This "sweet and saucy" historic treat from NBA, in the Gene Autry/Roy Rogers singing-cowboy tradition includes the classic "South Of The Border" and many other of Wills chart-topping hits. The good guys definitely finished first here!"
"Great Three cds of real Western Swing. Nolan Bruce Allen is carrying on the tradition."Salutes To The bob Wills Era" is the Nolan Bruce Allen tribute to the King of Western Swing Bob Wills a true pleasure listen each song of this triology. For me the best tribute to Bob Wills of this decade."
