Alabama Founding Member Jeff Cook Mixes it UP!!


New Album Brings Fans Musical Variety, Features Guest Appearances From Danielle Peck & Alabama’s Teddy Gentry

NASHVILLE, TN - April 15, 2010 – Though country music powerhouse ALABAMA retired in 2004, lead guitarist and fiddle player Jeff Cook can't bring himself to stop pickin' and doing what he does best. On May 11, 2010, Cook and his Allstar Goodtime Band release Shaken, Not Stirred. The album’s multi-genre material showcases the Country Music Hall of Famer’s love for not only country music, but also other genres that had an impact on his 30+ year career.

“Sure, country music got me to where I am but there are a lot of other formats and musicians out there who had major impacts on me as a music man” says Cook. “You’ll hear some original country songs on this album but also some classic multi-genre hits that I think lots of folks will remember… Jackie Wilson’s ‘Lonely Teardrops,’ Dave Clark Five’s ‘Because’ and the Beatles’ ‘She’s A Woman’ to name a few!”

Cook also brings in some recognizable country voices to compliment the album’s eclectic material. Alabama bass player Teddy Gentry joins Cook for some familiar harmonizing and Nashville recording artist Danielle Peck brings her smoky satin vocals for a rockin’ duet of the Pointer Sisters’ classic hit “Fire.”
