If anybody cares, there is a new video of me up on youtube playing some honking slow blues with my native band.

I hope you enjoy.

Nice blowing, Man! You must still be pinching yourself to have found an old Dukoff that worked to begin with and then having Brian Powell make it great.
I like the way you woke the elderly with the high note. Good effect.

i was about to mention that gary ;)
Very, very nice playing by you, man. Impressive. I particularly liked the bit where the lady with the zimmer frame threw her bra at the stage (just messing).

Seriously: great stuff. :)
dude, that was GREAT!!! I really enjoyed it.
Beautiful, man. That's how it's done. Too bad the lights are up so high, playing like that deserves a more appropriate setting, like sitting in a smoky room with a shot of rotgut and stale beer.
isn't it fun

to just honk and wail them good old blues. It's expression!
Very nice!

I never know what to play over that "Stormy Monday" substitution. Do you listen to Maxwell Davis much?

I love these guitar players who get so deep into T-bone Walker that you think they're never going to get out! If he doesn't have it already, you should get him that Duke Robillard/Ronnie Earl cd (The Duke meets the Earl): pure heaven for the Tbone enthusiast.

I LOVE Maxwell Davis! To misquote somebody, I've copied more of his stuff than I've forgotten! :) Thank you guys for the comments - it was a fun festival to play and I'm glad you guys dig it.

Bob, Brian did incredible work. Whenever I tell somebody what I play, they sort of get confused about how such a piece could work with this type of music. But it has that huge low end and it is effortless in the altissimo. I was really happy how the whole show turned out!
