No need for a review, I reviewed Grace Potter last month, and there is precious little I could say that has not been said before about The Allman Brothers. I will share this video of Grace and Benny Yurco on stage with Les Brers playing The Weight. Trully moving…even if the smartphone video howls and is generally a C- effort (but it’s still the best of the stuff I find on Youtube).
Yeah…this about sums it up.
Here’s a well produced cut from String Cheese Incident of Joyful Sound. I have no idea where or when this was recorded, but I’m betting by the general quality it was from sothe 2005-2010 period. Band Site Wikipedia Site Archive.org Live Concert Archive
It’s been a while since we had a jazz video. For some reason I had this little bit running around my mind this morning. Enjoy… Keith Jarrett performing “Autumn Leaves”.
Levon Helm, playing “Tennessee Jed” off his “Electric Dirt” album live on the David Letterman Show in 2009. Tremendous version, great sound, well worth the listen… For those who don’t know, Levon doesn’t travel much anymore. You should check out the Wikipedia page to read up on what’s going on, esp. the Midnight Ramble, then check out his own site. He currently plays with a who’s who list of top musicians, many of whom you’ll recognize from past Friday Music Videos…
Here’s one off the new album from Blue Touch, out of the UK – a band that’s lived the blues and it shows. Here is the music video from their latest album, “Outstanding” (which would be my rating) entitled “One More Kiss”. For my Atex friends, the bass player is none other than our own Merv Griffin! Dig Deeper: Be sure to check out their site for more tunes, to buy albums/mp3s and more…
Caught up with these guys from a tweet by Shel Holtz. Gritty New Orleans funk you can really sink your teeth into. Find more videos like this on Deep Banana Blackout Dig Deeper: Deep Banana Blackout site Deep Banana Blackout on Archive.org (live show recordings) Wikipedia Page
Excellent video of “Don’t Panic” from Chris Amodeo off his debut album, Homo Luminous… Dig Deeper: Chris’ website http://homo-luminous.com/ (This alone is worth a visit – a very wonderful and different design…) On Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Chris-Amodeo-Homo-Luminous/133986026631106
They’re playing a rare happy hour gig at Ralph’s Chadwick Square Grill in Worcester today from 5-8. Be there, and mention this blog post and your first beer is on me. Limited to the first 5 takers.
For me, the definitive version of a song covered more times than a Senator’s gluteous maximus. Janis at her best…evoking at once both hope and a unique sense of loss that the other artists fail to catch.
