back around SHEFFIELD– The Donna Jean Godchaux Band record release party for “Back Around” with Jeff Mattson is March 11th at 7 p.m. at the Ritz Theatre in Sheffield Alabama.

The band’s new album was released into the world February 18th and is available for purchase online.

During my interview with Jimmy Nutt of The NuttHouse Recording Studio, Nutt explained how, “Donna, from the very beginning, said I want this to be the best thing I’ve done, I want to take my time. I don’t want any deadlines. I want to get it right. I want my vocals to be right.”

“So from the beginning we knew it was going to take as long as it took period,” said Nutt.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was this album. Nutt explained,”We took our time. Actually, we spent anywhere between one and a half to two years working on it.”

“If you included the internal tracks, by the time it was done. I would say that it was a four year process,” said Nutt.
Just think, if people spent this long making movies and music, some great pieces of art would come of it. As it has here.

“Most of the songs had extended jam sessions, that we ended up editing down. And that was kind of our goal from the beginning,” said Nutt.

When I asked Nutt to describe “Back Around” in one word, he was excited to say,”Eclectic is the word that comes to mind. Because there is a wide range of musical styles on the album. We got some, kind of, straight up R&B tracks, some Grateful Dead jam-band-sounding-stuff; more song writer songs.”

Why is the music so eclectic? Nutt explains how broad the musical tracks became over the four year process. “There were two different drummers; the original tracks we cut had one drummer. And when we started the record, there was a different drummer. Also, a couple of different keyboard players,” attached themselves to the record along the way. “So, there’s different dynamics on both of those sessions,” said Nutt.

The concert is sponsored by The NuttHouse, CRC Realty Inc., Ray Miller GMC, Big River Broadcasting, Budweiser and HGR.
The Ritz theatre will be full of The More the Merrier Players: Charles Rose & The Muscle Shoals Horns, Will Mcfarlane, Clint Bailey, Marie Lewey, Cindy Walker and Mefford & Mann.
