T-Model Ford Set To Release "The Ladies Man" In January

Alive Naturalsound Records is pleased to announce the release of T-Model Ford's "The Ladies Man" on January 12th, 2010.

T-Model's 80-something years old... his Mississippi Driver's License says he's 84, his US Passport says he's 87, and he says he's 88... so you decide. He started playing guitar based on Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, but T's only got one style: his own. T's illiterate, so no use in talking to him about tuning. They call it "open T" because it's his own unique sound.

"The Ladies Man" is T-Model Ford's seventh album, counting his live recordings, and what makes it unique is that it's entirely acoustic. Recorded at Planet Sound Studios in Wichita, Kansas, the album is the product of a live, one-take afternoon session with no overdubs and minimal mixing. T wanted to play acoustic guitar and have 100% control over the record and everyone involved in the project agreed he should do it the way he wanted. The result is pure T Model, with some newer young musician-friends playing along with him.

T-Model says he doesn't have a care in the world, and you should believe him. He's acting like he is willing to die on the road, playing music and doing what he loves. So be it if it happens. We all gotta go sometime...
