After relying almost exclusively on a few favourite songs from his youth with his predecessor "Bringing It Back Home", the "Tag in Nashville" was again more about recording his own songs. The guitarist and singer, along with his extraordinary band, didn't take much time for this with cracks like second guitarist Audley Freed (The Black Crowes), keyboarder Ricky Peterson (David Sanborn), Tony Bennett trombonist Barry Green and Sting drummer Wes Little. The recordings really only took place on one single day. The Sound Kitchen Studio, known for its relaxed atmosphere, inspired the musicians to make this album sound as if they had left all the time in the world. Every note is right and additionally each of the nine tracks seems very spontaneous. Stylistically Ford moves as usual from bluesy mainstream rock to cool swinging jazz. That sounds like a wild mixture, but it's not, because extremes aren't the Californian's business, which doesn't mean that his music is smooth.
