“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.
Yeah. That’s the great Taj Mahal with the great Ry Cooder covering the great Blind Willie McTell‘s great 1928 recording of Statesboro Blues in Nashville Tennessee, September, 2014.
The Allman Brothers covered the same great song.
Speaking of jamming, the great Buddy Guy still does it better than most.
Have a great weekend, my friends, see you back here tomorrow.
Papa John Creach (1917-1994) performed with Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Stuff Smith, Charlie Christian, Big Joe Turner, T-Bone Walker, Nat King Cole and Roy Milton. Later he toured with Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane / Jefferson Starship.
Buddy Guy always looks like he’s having fun. This concert is from 1994 [via Mme. Jujujive].
Now THIS is killer.
Gatemouth Brown and Roy Clark picking jump blues speedgrass to Duke Ellington‘s “Take The A Train” in 1979.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend, folks. Go fire up the grille and burn something tasty.
I love this interview.

Yeah, The Blues Brothers gave it a good cover in 1979, but this one is better. Junior Wells with Buddy Guy at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival is nothing less than killer.
Here’s Junior Wells’ original version from 1960.
Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.
Steve N’ Seagulls is a band from Finland that records bluegrass covers of various heavy metal groups (including AC/DC) and they’re entirely awesome.
Little Feat was (and is) an underrated band that didn’t get as much attention as they deserved, despite Jimmy Page’s endorsement. Here they are with Emmy Lou Harris and Bonnie Raitt on backup vocals playing their 1973 hit “Dixie Chicken.” Great swamp rock. (Check out the lead-in to their 1979 album “Down On The Farm” for a grin.)
The embedded title says it all, but the vid starts late and cuts off too soon. Jimi Hendrix studied the masters, including Buddy Guy.
paid tribute to complimented both Hendrix and Cream at the Byron Bay Blues Fest in April 2014.
Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget Yo Mama Day.
Lake Superior pwns the ice [via].
13 February 2016
“Lake Superior put on a dramatic show with her recent ice in Duluth, Minnesota.
The seemingly endless ice sheets broke into large plates and stacked on shore, sounding much like breaking glass. The ice thickness ranged from about 1/4″ to about 3″ thick.”
Room Full Of Blues (AKA The Institute of Awesome). They’ve been around for decades and don’t get half the respect they deserve. I heard them live in the ’80s and my ears are still ringing.
How ’bout some Magic Slim? Nice bad boy groove, that.
Buddy Guy coached a young prodigy on stage, and displayed no condescension whatsoever. What a class act.
Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here to tomorrow, because I said so.

„Digi Fonful” ieste un instrument muzical inventat de Ştefan Popescu, fost concurent la „Românii au talent .În ciuda numelui, instrumentul nu are nicio componentă digitală. Digi Fonful, care seamănă cu un fluier, este făcut să cânte cu ajutorul unui deget introdus într-un capăt al intrumentului şi al aerului suflat printr-un orificiu.În clipul de mai sus îl puteţi vedea pe cel mai mare „virtuoz” al Digi Fonfului, Ştefan Popescu, în acţiune.

Buddy Guy from February 2015, pushing 80 years at the time of that interview. He always looked like he had fun playing, as he did in this 1989 vid with Stevie Ray Vaughan:
That wraps it up for this edition of the Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, and we’ll have more fun tomorrow.
The very underrated G.E. Smith‘s Top Ten Seconds on SNL.
We may have posted this one before, but so what. It’s awesome. Buddy Guy‘s “Damn Right I Got The Blues.
So let’s wrap up this bad baboso with Danny Rockabilly and His Clan. [Music is cool, vid might not be safe for kids.]
Have a great weekend, folks, and remember those who sacrificed their lives on this Memorial Day weekend.
Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys‘ “Pumped Up Kicks” made me laugh. Clever stuff that.
How ’bout some Muddy Waters? Here’s a jam from 1978. (Note that James Cotton is not the first harp blower on the vid.)
Killer blues tribute with a great lineup. 45 minutes of pure awesome.
Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
Wingsuit fail vid from Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
[SFK. Yeah, as horrible and disturbing as it is, it’s SFK.]

Karen Marie‘s take on Little Willie John‘s “Fever” (done in 12 styles with Postmodern Jukebox). It kept my attention, even though the video erroneously credits Peggy Lee for the song. LWJ recorded it in 1956; two years later Peggy Lee covered it.
Here’s the great Buddy Guy and his take on the song. And with that we’re out. Have a great weekend, folks. See you soon.
