Silent Partners


Silent Partners - If It’s All Night, It’s All Right - 1989 - Antones

A short lived makeshift band co-founded in 1987 Sacramento CA, by Russell Jackson, the great bassist from Memphis, TN, and drummer Tony Coleman from Kissemee in Florida. The late, great guitarist and keyboardist, Mel Brown was also a member of the band. "If It’s All Night, It’s All Right" was the only official studio album release from this band of sidemen, but it's a terrific album of blues, soul blues, R&B, and electric blues rock. Musicians include Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff on harmonica and saxophone, and Angela Strehli on background vocals.

Hi, guinea pig. It's a great album. As far as I know the band only made the one album. However, Mel Brown's work is worth looking up. He was a very underrated musician. TTU soon, & thanks
