Frank Foster was playing a street concert from the Jazzmobile in Harlem. He called for a blues in B-flat. A young tenor player began to play "out" from the first chorus, playing sounds that had no relationship to the harmonic progression or rhythmic setting. Foster stopped him. "What are you doing?" "Just playing what I feel. "Well, feel something in B-flat, mother****er"

Hi all,
Here's a clip featuring Jimmy Capps and the perfectly amazing Curly Chalker on pedal steel from the Wilburn Brothers Show, where they were in the house band.



All best,
Johnm

Thanks for posting that, John.  Those Nashville guys are so good.  They remind me of utility infielders in baseball, not getting all the glory, but playing solid every game.

Jimmy Capps is an Eastern North Carolina musical legend who grew up in the small town of Benson, N.C. Here is a well made film about Jimmy Capps featuring lots of interview with the man and also local country music heroes Clyde Mattocks and Charlie Albertson. I was able to attend the concert several years ago in Benson where the town honored him and proclaimed an official "Jimmy Capps Day." Some of the music footage on this film was from that concert.

Thanks for posting that, Lightning.  What a pleasure listening to those old friends reminiscing.  It brings back memories of those little radio stations that seemed to be in every town, and trips to the Opry back in the old Ryman days.
