Charlie’s Boogie features 11 instrumental tracks and one vocal track (The D-18 Song) carefully chosen to represent Duane and Craig’s various influences which range from the gypsy jazz of legendary French guitarist Django Reinhardt (Confessin’) to the ‘Father of Bluegrass’ Bill Monroe (Tennessee Blues) with a dash of traditional music from Newfoundland (Old Boney/ Good Morning You Would Like Some Tea). All these influences are felt in the two original compositions offered by Duane (The Supermoon Rag) and Craig (Cat’s In The Bag). The album title is a tip of the hat to the late Canadian guitar hero Smiley Bates and is a composition of Mr. Bates that both Duane and Craig learned in their pre-teen years as budding guitar pickers.
