Saturday Matinee – Clanadonia, Mickey Hart / Planet Drum & Joe Bonamassa with Tina Guo

Saturday, 16 September 2017

How ’bout something primal? Nothing better than Scottish tribal drums and bagpipes. Clanadonia is what it is, and it’s loud. “The Last of the Glaswegians” is going to be stuck in my head for days.

Mickey Hart & Planet Drum perform “Fire On The Mountain” (24 July 1999, Rome, New York).

Amazing speed cellist Tina Guo jams it with Joe Bonamassa on “Woke Up Dreaming” at Carnegie Hall (June 2017?). Takes them a bit to get in synch, then it soars. Guo’s take on Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” is fun, too.

Have a great weekend folks.

Saturday Matinee – Portlandia Gutter Punks, Music From Hell & Joe Bonamassa Rips It

Saturday, 29 July 2017

Heh. I’ve seen posers like this in Santa Monica and elsewhere in Southern California.

Dang [via].

Reminds me of Tom Waits’ “Conundrum” that he described as the sound of “a jail door closing behind you” and says it looks “kind of like a Chinese torture device.”

So many uncredited influences crammed into one awesome jam.

Have a great weekend, folks, and I promise we’ll never post the real names of your dogs and cats without permission.

Saturday Matinee – Charlie Musselwhite with Ben Harper, Walter Trout with Joe Bonamassa, & Anders Osborne

Saturday, 4 March 2017

Great jam from 2013 with Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite.

Walter Trout kicks Joe Bonamassa loose at the Winter Park “Blues From The Top” music festival in 2007.

Anders Osborne slides into Swamp/Soca/Reggae mashup with a nice groove.

Great stuff to rock you for a while. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow whether you like it or not.

Saturday Matinee: Dancebot, Johnny Cash, Howlin’ Wolf & Joe Bonamassa

Saturday, 11 June 2016

Very cool bot moves. Amazing that the people can replicate their own moves, too.

Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley were competitors of sorts during their Sun Studio recording days. Here’s Presley doing Cash.
[Vid found in here.]

That’s Howlin’ Wolf in 1966. The song was a reworking of “Hey Lawdy Mama,” written and performed by Buddy Moss in 1934. Wolf’s version was covered by The Fabulous Thunderbirds and re-titled “Runnin’ Shoes.”

How Many More Years” as covered by Joe Bonamassa in a tribute concert in 2015. Pretty impressive lineup, too:

Bonamassa’s touring band, dubbed the “Muddy Wolf Band” [and] includes Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Ron Dziubla (saxophone), Nick Lane (trombone), Mike Henderson (harmonica), and Kirk Fletcher (guitar) [via].

Have a great weekend folks. We’ll have some more fun tomorrow.

 

Saturday Matinee – Spoondog, New Orleans Zombie Report, “The Creation” & Joe Bonamassa

Saturday, 2 February 2013

Spoondog is a dog with a spoon [via].

Since tomorrow is the SuperBowl, here’s how one New Orleans reporter trolled an inebriated videobomber.

“The Creation.” Awesome hand drawn animation by Thomas Meyer-Hermann & Film Bilder. ” (Comment on the Utoobage sums it up: “It’s cyriak but drawn.”)

Joe Bonamassa‘s  “Just Got Paid” at the 2009 North Sea Jazz Festival. So much groove crammed into one jam, and it’d take me too long to post all of the obvious influences. “Wheedlie-wheedlie-spoo” guitar solos turn me off because they sound silly and self-indulgent, but this ‘un is a good ‘un.

Have a great weekend folks, and I hope your team wins.
