In eclectic Tav Falco fashion, Shadow Dancer traverses exotic tango, scorching rock `n' roll (in a few languages), bluesy balladry and torchy cabaret styles with the Panther Burns' most accomplished accompaniment to date. In addition to his own passionate material, suave stylist Tav brilliantly resuscitates gems from a grand host of talent, from Dean Martin to Dion, Bobby 'Blue' Bland to Jimmy Witherspoon, Gene Pitney to the Honeycombs. Fellow Memphis-bred heroes Alex Chilton, a founding member of Panther Burns, and the legendary Jim Dickinson (Dixie Flyers, Jesters) guest alongside the current Panther Burns lineup which features fiery drummer Jim Sclavunos (Cramps, Lydia Lunch) and impeccable keyboardist/album producer Perry Michael Allen, a veteran of the Hi and Stax studios and stints with Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Albert King and Eddie Floyd. It's been a fistful of fervent albums since those ol' Skilsaw-to-the-Silvertone CounterFest days, but unorthodox preservationist Tav and his wild-eyed Panther Burns are still, as he so eloquently puts it, 'acting as agents provocateurs in the pageantry of the information wars.'
