Great stuff, brings back memories.  We used to dance (in the late 70's) to a mix known as "Kevin's Party Tapes" which had a bunch of this old soul stuff.  This group of Austin friends was still dancing to these tapes in 2014... I was there to witness and to also pull a leg muscle trying to get fancy.  Kevin had transferred the whupped cassettes to CD - they sounded terrible, but didn't matter.

Daniel Gonora - blind street singer, Zimbabwe

Sorry the first link I can only find on Facebook - the kid's drumming is fantastic, with such a POS drumset.


The video is the same pair, drummer is more sedate.

Again not YouTube, but still...where better to post it?

Just had this podcast pointed out to me, listening now. Our own John Miller with band Freshet, live, from 2005.

This weekend a friend and I watched "Improvisation," a film that Norman Granz produced in the 1950s (with Charlie Parker, Lester Young, and Coleman Hawkins sadly lip-synching their performances because the studio wasn't sound-proofed sufficiently to record them live), plus some clips from the 60s and 70s tacked on.

This is the one that really caught my ear: Joe Pass.

I have been a fan of Joe Pass for some time now. I actually have been listening to him longer than I have been listening to country blues. I only have one album of his but I really enjoy it. Great clip!

Hi all,
Here is Norman Edmonds playing "Kingdom (not Kingdom's) Come" from the old Galax Fiddler's Convention LP on Folkways.  I always loved this tune and performance.
All best,
Johnm

This one got everyone dancing at the Top Rank Ballrooms in the UK when I was a moddy boy in the sixties. In Reading we routinely had to dodge the skinheads and run for the scooters afterwards because the skins loved da reggae almost as much as they hated mods. Mostly peace on the dancefloor, total chaos outside. Souping-up Vespas and Lambrettas was a survival reflex.



This is background music at my house . Rudeboy music is hard to NOT to dance to.

Here's an hour-long film documenting Levester "Big Lucky" Carter's visit to a small space in Hungary--at least I think it's Hungary, please set me straight if it's not--where he mixes it up with two elder local musicians grinding away on a fiddle and playing a cello-sized stringed instrument with a stick (not a bow).

Proof that you don't need to be from the same culture, or in the same key for that matter, to make fun music.



Things really get cooking about 30 minutes in, but if you have time, watch it all.
