NEW!! Here's a cut that was omitted from Hey Mister Get the Ball because of time limitations of the original LP format. It was long lost until I recently found a copy of Doxy. It features Andy Statman (mandolin), Jon Sholle (guitar), Marty Confurious (bass) and Bishop O'Brien (drums). What a fine bunch of swinging musicians. [download]

Here are sound bites from other folks' albums on which I play, out-of-print stuff, along with some live cuts from my concerts. I will occasionally be expanding this section so please check back.

An excerpt from the "Bunch of Keys" medley on Eileen Ivers' Crossing the Bridge CD (on Sony Classical). She plays Irish fiddle tunes fast!! [download]

I recently found my recording of "Doxy" that was omitted from my "Hey Mister Get the Ball" album. This version features Andy Statman, Jon Sholle, Marty Confurious, Bishop O'Brien and some overdubbed dobro stuff. [download]

This is a full 7 minute cut from The Art of Trio CD. The tune is "You Don't Know What Love Is", a jazz ballad with resonator guitar, piano and bass. [download]

Here's some of my violin playing on Old Madeira Waltz from the Tall Boots CD, a collection of rare pieces from The Sons of the Pioneers. Mike Dowling plays guitar, Paul Elliott on harmony violin and there's a bit of my overdubbed dobro. (For ordering info. go to http://www.suzespencermarshall.com/ )         [download]

From the same cd, I play a square neck National on Honolulu Bound         [download]
The final excerpt from Tall Boots features some western harmony. on If You Would Only Be Mine.         [download]

And now, something a bit different - four cuts from the accompanying recording to Paul Howard's fine instruction book Swing Guitar (Alfred Publishing). These are improvised solos to typical chord progressions that Paul demonstrates on rhythm guitar. My assignment - improvise to the chord progressions.
