Saturday Matinee – El Twanguero, Hot Club du Nax, John Prine & Grandpa Elliot Small

Saturday, 16 January 2021

Spanish guitarist Diego Garcia, aka El Twanguero, plays his original composition Minor Rag / Spanish Rag. Stay with this one; it starts out slow then jumps to amazing.

Austria’s Hot Club du Nax features talent from Innsbruck, Prague, London and Bologna, and do a damn fine job playing 1930s gypsy swing.

John Prine had the perfect voice for his style of songwriting and was “among the English language’s premier phrase-turners with music relevant to any age.”

Grandpa Eliott Small & his PFC Band pulled off a great version of Buster Brown‘s Fannie Mae (complete with some whoopin’ and eefin’). A New Orleans street performer, Small once said he doesn’t know what beer tastes like, he’s never touched drugs and the only thing he smokes is the exhaust from the cars that pass Royal and Toulouse.

As I was looking for some music videos for this post, I began searching my memory for loud, angry, pissed-off frustration songs to reflect the recent abhorrent events that have fallen upon our Republic, knowing that things are about to get worse.

Then I decided that I didn’t want to go there. Venting is wasted energy, at least for me, so I wandered off in a different direction. Hope you like it.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow.

Guitar Boogie Shuffle, The Virtues (1958) Recorded as Guitar Boogie Shuffle in 1953 by both The Esquire Boys and The Super-Sonics, Frank Virtue (aka Frank Virtuoso) was 35 when he recorded this cover of Arthur Smith & His Crackerjacks 1948 hit Guitar Boogie.

My opinion.

Poncho Sales.

Dog likes Pavarotti.

Don’t try this at home.

Now about this QAnon business…

Saturday Matinee – Too Many Zooz, The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio & Buddy Guy w/ B.B. King

Saturday, 9 January 2021

“Warriors” by Too Many Zooz, shot somewhere under NYC, is oddly interesting. Some call it street music, but the band calls it “brass house.” Kinda rough on my ears, but I get it.

Tight sound with a nice groove. The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio (aka DLO3) covers Curtis Mayfield‘s 1970 soul classic Move On Up.
Delvon Lamarr – Hammond B3 organ
Jabrille “Jimmy James” Williams – guitar
David McGraw – drums

“When I’m pushing up daisies, don’t forget. You’re still my, Buddy”

Two greats, Buddy Guy and (the late) B.B. King. No more needs to be said.

Have a great weekend, search for the truth, ignore the liars, and be back tomorrow for Funday.
