Can't get enough of this. It's beautiful:

For those enjoying gipsy jazz and musette waltzes, the classic Matelo Ferret album Tsiganskaya can now be heard in YouTube:

Hi all,
I thought some of you might get a kick out of this playing by Teddy Bunn.



All best,

Since Ryland P. Cooder's name has come up recently, and it's Saturday night, I thought I'd share this, which, having seen it for the first time 5 minutes ago (so I've had a lot of time to think about it) I regard as close to perfection for a live performance involving electric guitar and conjunto accordion.

I really like the timing here, the changes are perfect no matter how crazy things get. It's nice to watch musical telepathy in action, and nobody messes up their solo either. It's also a primer on how to fingerpick a strat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I dunno why it doesn't embed, just click on the link.

Thanks, Rivers.

Also: An interview with Ry by Barry Mazor on YT from October 2014:



P.S. I finished Barry's book about Ralph Peer about 6 weeks ago. Definitely worth reading, IMHO.

Wow. That Teddy Bunn recording is great. I'd heard and enjoyed his playing in the context of the Spirits of Rhythm, but his solo playing is fantastic.

I'm glad you enjoyed Teddy's playing on that cut, Lastfirstface, and I couldn't agree more about his solo playing.  One thing really impressive to me about the cut is that it is 3:11 long, and he is not coming anywhere near to running out of ideas by the end--he sounds like he could keep playing until sometime next week and still be hitting fresh ideas.
All best,
Johnm

And now for something completely different...
 I don't even know what you call this genre, nothing I've ever been too keen on before I'm sure; but I could listen to these guys all day while I'm working and I ain't in a country blues mood.
Really like this EP and even bought it after finding it here.....( yes it is still possible to actually pay artists for their work if you like! who knew?)

In answer to those who asked about hearing Karen Dalton,
I knew her slightly in the late sixties, early seventies. She was the ex wife of a close friend, and also a terrific songwriter named Richard Tucker.
As with many musicians she was better live than on vinyl imho. Katie Cruel is a really great cut though. An Interesting, complicated and very alluring woman.

JohnM, I'm also a big Jessie Winchester fan. Excellent songwriter and singer. I saw him live once at a place called the Speakeasy on McDougal St., and in between sets he found a quiet place to sit and read a book! I looked at that and thought, wow I wish I had had the presence of mind to have done that rather than swilling away between sets at the Kettle of Fish! Although that also had its rewards.

I'm so sorry to hear that Ornette has died.  He was one of my biggest musical heros, a wonderful composer and player and a big spirit.  To invent a new way of hearing and playing music--that's a really big thing to do, and he did it.  The coherence and sense of his approach is reflected in the playing of so many present-day musicians who speak comfortably in his musical language.  What a sound he had!  I've heard him play solos that sounded as though he was expressing everything in life.  I will miss just knowing he was out there somewhere, hearing what he heard and expressing it as he felt it.  Thank you for letting us know, Phil, though it is sure sad news.
