One For The Dance Halls

By Jesse Dayton

Dayton applies his resonant baritone as he and a snap-tight backing band essay mid-tempo shuffles (Pretty Girls Make the World Go ‘Round), a return foray to country duet territory with singing partner Brennan Leigh (Back to Back), some high-test honky tonk (Falling Apart, one of two songs from the pen of fine Texan singer-songwriter Damon Bramblett) and de rigueur weepers (The Bad Ol’ Days). The album’s highlight, though, is Dayton’s cool, countrified re-invention of the delicious, self-conscious wallow of Nick Lowe’s Lately I’ve Let Things Slide.

Ernest Tubb & The Texas Troubadors, Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys, Willie Nelson & The Family Band, George Strait and the Ace In The Hole Band, have all played regular shows at the legendary dance hall, the Broken Spoke in Austin , TX, which is what Jesse Dayton has been doing for years. Leading his band every Thursday night and keeping the dance floor full. Such was the inspiration for Jesse’s latest release, “One For The Dance Halls.”

“One For The Dance Halls” was also inspired by a core group of Austin dancers, who Jesse aptly named the “Solid Chrome Dancers.” He had never made a straight ahead top-to-bottom country record that consisted only of shuffles, straight 8’s, ballads and waltzes. He says, “I knew if I could come up with some new material that they loved, I’d be on my way to making a legendary country record that might stand the test of time.”

Having shared the studio with Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Willie Nelson and Johnny Bush, Jesse needed no more inspiration than the incredible tunes these dance hall giants had brought before him. After recording a complete record for Rob Zombie’s “Halloween 2,” as genre-bending Captain Clegg & The Night Creatures, Jesse was ready to uncover the roots of country dance tunes and bring them to light with “One For The Dance Halls.”
