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, 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. “I’m a ladies man. The ladies follow me everywhere. Some folks don’t like white folks. I like the white folks, they helped make me famous and I’ve made money. The white folks appreciate the blues, they appreciate T-Model. I love white folks.” – T-Model Ford
