Saturday Matinee – The End, The Brothers Comatose w/ AJ Lee, Justin Johnson, Kingfish Ingram &

In 2020, the world stood still… in the movies too.
The End is an experimental narrative short film, in black & white and color, made only with movies gifs with a perfect loop, more than 500.

The End is also a tribute to the cinema, from silent films to now.

Music by Enrico Morricone. [h/t Mme. Jujujive]

The Brothers Comatose with AJ Lee covers Neil Young – and do it better.

Justin Johnson‘s style mashup works.

23 year old Kingfish Ingram has already recorded and/or performed with Rick Derringer, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, Bob Margolin, Keb Mo, Mr. Sipp and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Amazing.

Whoa. It’s the weekend already. Lotta time flies these days and we’ll see you tomorrow sooner than you think.

Saturday Matinee – The Crow, Samantha Fish & Unknown Hinson

The Crow (2022) is a film  short created by Glenn Marshall Neural Art.

In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane.
“Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.

“Here come the dayum train, Bebeh!” – Unknown Hinson

Guess that’ll do for now.  Have a great weekend despite what they tell you, and tomorrow we’re gonna do stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Compact Living, Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Die Häder Bänd w/ Linda Krieg

The tenants’ reviews are interesting [via].

Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings did a great cover of Gregg Allman’s Midnight Rider (even though it’s a commercial). Sharon Jones succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2016 at the age of 60.

Acclaimed German blues group Die Häder Bänd covers Memphis Minnie. Can’t find the lineup, but that’s Linda Krieg is on vocals and harp.

Don’t know what happened, but I lost a day this week and missed the .Gif Friday Post. Maybe it’s because I got mask-shamed by a dwarf. Again.

Meanwhile have a great weekend and we’ll go on a link binge tomorrow.

New Year’s Dayyum Saturday Matinee – Psy, Glenn Crytzer and his Syncopators, Carl Verheyen & The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in Times Square NYE 2013. Yeah. Psy did that.
Gangnam Style was the first-ever video on the Utoobage to surpass 1 billion views.

New Year’s Blues
Glenn Crytzer and his Syncopators do the Jazz Age thang with

Some killer riffs in Carl Verheyen‘s New Year’s Day.

Here’s something a bit more traditional, and if your brain done got all swolled  up from last night’s festivities, maybe just an .mp3 will do:

Auld Lang Syne, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards 2010

Wishing all of you a healthy and prosperous New Year.
As for 2021, let’s just not do that again.

Saturday Matinee Christmas – Jason D. Williams, The Petersens, and Leon Redbone w/ Ken Peplowski & Dr. John

Jason D. Williams is a madman on the ivories, and the video was posted on the Utoobage just a few days ago.

The PetersensSleigh Ride [2:31] is a fun take on one of my favorites.

“Listen to how perfect this is…
The Doctor, Leon, and the heir to Benny Goodman…”

Leon Redbone, Dr. John and Ken Peplowski make a great trio, and Leon spelled backwards is, well, you know.

Have a great pre-holiday weekend, be back here tomorrow for some last minute shopping.

Saturday Matinee – Andrey Bakhurin, Haruka Kikuchi /w Stephen Walker & Michael Nesmith

Just rediscovered this 2008 Russian compilation of animations done with Post-It Notes (by Andrey Bakhurin).

“Welcome to ‘Trombone Talk’ and today’s guest is Stephen Walker (I call him Steve). He is one of my old friend since I’ve been here, we used to hang around at the YUKI Izakaya on Frenchmen Street (they closed down in October 2016), and yes, great Trombone player.”

Haruka Kikuchi has earned the title of Queen of the Tailgate Trombone.

One of the prettiest songs ever written.
R.I.P. Michael Nesmith.

Hope y’all have a great weekend and we’ll be here all day tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Cyriak & the Four Seasons, Trombone Shorty, TUOOGB & Ted Yoder

In 2007 Cyriak captured the essence of FV & the FS.

An amazing 13 year old Trombone Shorty played with Wynton Marsalis in 2000 and almost blew a cheek. Great stuff.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain does a lot of amusing covers, but this one is worth the listen: Jelly Roll Morton‘s recording of King Oliver‘s Dr. Jazz Stomp (1926).

This ethereal version of Tears For Fears‘ 1985 hit by Ted Yoder on hammer dulcimer makes me want to bang pots and pans, but I like it.

That’s a wrap. Be back tomorrow and we’ll mess around some more.

Saturday Matinee – Avner the Eccentric, Khruangbin & Raskahuele Estridente

That’s some class clowning. While street performing in Paris,  Avner Eisenberg (aka Avner the Eccentric) was once arrested for buffoonery in public.

Space surf funk jazz mixed with world music = Khruangbin.
The name is Thai for “aeroplane,” and they make their recordings in a barn in  Burton, Texas (pop. 300). There’s more about them here than on their cool website.

Formed in 2004, L.A.’s Raskahuele Estridente is sort of a latino version of Fishbone, and I like their style.  Their song topics include socio-political / immigration issues mixed in with fun stuff.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, fight for the leftovers, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – The Two Man Gentlemen Band, Old Dominion & Lil’ Ed and The Blues Imperials

Andy Bean & Fuller Condon, aka The Two Man Gentlemen Band, have a fancy beer with some Slim & Slam style speed jazz.

Old Dominion are out of Nashville with roots in  Virginia, hence the  name.
[h/t Octo].

Lil’ Ed and The Blues Imperials are killer.
Lil’ Ed Wiiliams (vocals, slide guitar), Ed’s half-brother James “Pookie” Young (bass), guitarist Mike Garrett (guitar) and drummer Kelly Littleton (drums) have been jamming for over 30 years. Lil’ Ed & Pookie learned from their uncle,  J. B. Hutto.

Thanksgiving comes just a little earlier every year and now it’s just days away. Have a great weekend, we’ll figure out the menu tomorrow.
