Folk styles tend to be conservative and one doesn't have to move the earth in order to express oneself within a tradition. A little personal innovation goes a long way in this music and one needn't go overboard in the direction of technical virtuosity, self-consciously weird harmonic effects, or jazz-inspired no-holds-barred improvisations on the theme... - Art Rosenbaum, Old-Time Mountain Banjo

Coolio!
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

Yeah, he blew the audience away.  Very talented fellow, plays fiddle as well (he's classically trained but makes his living playing uke(!) ) and is very funny to boot.

Hi all,
I posted this one over on facebook, but I think it's important to see and hear this one and to realize that anyone could do what Dave McKenna routinely did:  improvise like a great horn player while simultaneously comping chords in the middle register and walking an improvised bass line like a great bass player (NOT a repeating boogie figure), switch tempos seamlessly, go into Stride, et al.  I think he's the hardest swinging pianist ever, what an engine, and when I hear him I always feel as though the guitar is a kind of nice little toy.  Anyway--


All best,
Johnm

This is bluesy, both in title and music, but it's a lot more besides. Hoagy Carmichael doing Hong Kong Blues with a spiffy little band, from the film To Have And Have Not.

I love how the 'oriental' tenor banjo, mandolin, fiddle and percussion parts meld with the jazz / ragtime / minor blues idioms,  it covers a lot of ground. Somebody's tapping on a bottle at some point I just noticed.

I've been obsessed with the song for the last week figuring it out for guitar, including some of the oriental licks and all the changes. It's actually an incredible piece when you start to dig into it and a real challenge to learn and big fun to play when you have it down.

Only discovered this lot recently and I love it. It's very difficult to mix genres and actually make it work. I think they succeed very well.

For those forum members who enjoy gypsy jazz, I'd like to intoduce to you a young Finnish talent called Olli Soikkeli.
