The son of legendary guitarist Jimmy Raney,
Doug Raney has understandably been heavily influenced by his father.
He's an impressive soloist, and utilizes almost identical full
tones, crisp chording, and fluid voicings.
He made his first recording with his father and Al Haig in the
mid-'70s, then did duo dates with his dad in the late '70s. Raney
recorded for Steeplechase in the '70s and '80s, and Criss Cross
in the '80s. He recorded with Chet Baker and Bernt Rosengren,
and played in Horace Parlan's band. Raney has a couple of sessions
available on CD.
