Sweet Singing Swing With The Bill Gannon 3


You Stepped Out Of A Dream

Sweet Singing Swing With The Bill Gannon 3
Carlton Record Corporation LP 12/144

From the back cover: Bill Gannon - Thin, trim and crew-cut. Proud owner of a sleek Jaguar XK150; proud owner of an endless string of original arrangements. Plays a mean piano. Ability to sing tenor or melody with equal alacrity. Thought about a different kind of trio, and quite naturally thought of...

Larry Hovis - A college grad, this lad holds a PHD in rhythm. Let his "sticks" meet the "skins," or let his lyric tenor voice fill the room, and you know this is a musician all the way! Only one thing could top Gannon and Hovis together... and that was Gannon, Hovis and... (Vocals by Larry Hovis by permission of Capitol Records).

Gerry Lloyd - Serious and subdued in his private life, but capable of making a string bass sing with joy. Add his resonant bass voice and you've added complement to an entirely new trio – and in turn – an entirely new sound!

Houston born and Houston bred are the three men of the Bill Gannon Trio. In the chic bistros and smart supper clubs in and around this booming Port city, night owls have been chanting their praises. Disk jockey throughout the Lone-Star state agree that here are real "comers."
