The BRAND NEW Blues & Jazz video thread
I loved Encore_God's old video thread (here), so I decided to start a new one, and hopefully encourage some posting on our lonely forum.

If you've seen any cool blues or jazz videos on youtube or similar sites, post them here.

Discussion is more than welcome and encouraged, but let's not turn this into a place to debate about which artists are "real" blues or the merits of jazz fusion, if we can help it.

I'll get us started. A cool song played by the late Sean Costello:

I dig the solo in this song.

That Old Geezer 10-11-2011 10:02 PM

Good old Miles -

Wes Montgomery -

Joe Pass -

Good Hip Hop Jazz with Madlib -

Jazz with violin - Love Regina Carters tone.

May put more later.

TNfootballfan62 10-11-2011 10:03 PM

Not many guitar players do it for me like Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass. :cheers:

That Old Geezer 10-11-2011 10:07 PM

Agreed :cheers: And to be honest its hard for me to find a jazz guitarist I like, most of them do something that puts me off, but Joe and Wes got something else going the others don't. :p:

Also my favorite blues song, BB King :cool: -

TNfootballfan62 10-11-2011 10:11 PM

A cool live song from Wes:

That Old Geezer 10-11-2011 10:21 PM

Good tune, I'm guessing that's the only song he performed on that show?

TNfootballfan62 10-11-2011 10:22 PM

No idea. It's just one I stumbled upon in my youtube adventures, haha.

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 05:39 PM

Alright, I gotta get in on this.

In keeping with the Wes business: "Blue 'N' Boogie" (It was either that or "Cariba")

Geoff Achison - The Jungle

Taj Mahal - The Cuckoo

The Tedeschi Trucks Band - Midnight In Harlem

Gotta go, but I'll be back.

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 07:07 PM

I was wondering where you ran off to. I'm diggin' the new Tedeschi Trucks Band stuff. The whole album is great.

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 09:14 PM

Ha! Yeah, I've been a little scarce. Real life can get in the way of one's internetingz. It seems I wind up in The Pit more often than not when I peek in here... Also, for what it's worth, I don't feel obligated to chime in on every "recommend me some blues" thread. By now, I know I've spoken my peace enough to not be that scratched record...

The Tedeschi Trucks Band is fantastic though, I've seen them twice now and I'm lovin' it. I met Derek's dad at the last show, he's running the merch booth. But yeah man, they're tight! They all look like they're having such a great time too, especially Oteil. And yes, the album is great.

Here's a few more videos/tunes.

The Steepwater Band - Remember The Taker

Marc Ford & The Neptune Blues Club - Don't Get Me Killed

Muddy Waters w/ Johnny Winter - Can't Be Satisfied

Gregg Allman - Floating Bridge

Duane Allman - Happily Married Man

The Allman Brothers Band - Egypt

I saw the ABB play "Egypt" this past April at the Wanee Festival. I knew what it was within the first half of a second and I just freaked. They don't just play this all the time, so I was in heaven for the next 10 - 15 minutes.

But anyways, how the hell have you been?

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 09:21 PM

I'm doing great. Staying busy. Way too busy, actually. :haha

I haven't gotten to see TTB yet. They haven't come close enough. I'm going to catch Warren Haynes Band next month, though.

Is life treating you well?

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 09:59 PM

Nice, I saw the Warren Haynes Band at Wanee too. It was fantastic.

I've been busy enough. I've been married to my job since January, which is a blessing and a curse... House projects, jamming, drinking, concerts, overtime, catching up from a 20-month lay-off, chasing tail, new car, etc... I can't wait for some vacation time, I'm gonna burn up a week as soon as I get some back. Seriously, it's been getting to be too much.

Shit man, there was even a period of like 2 and a half months where I didn't even touch a guitar, it even felt foreign that first time. But, it's one of those things where you come back and just smoke the plateau that you were stuck on. I feel like my phrasing has improved a lot.

Still searching for that perfect IPA too...

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 10:00 PM

I've been drinking Stone Ruination IPA. It's STRONG.

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 10:03 PM

Yes it is. The aptly named Ruination. :haha: Their Arrogant Bastard Ale is pretty damn good too.

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 10:07 PM

I love all of their beers that I've tried. The 15th anniversary imperial black IPA is very good, too. Very strong, hoppy, but finishes very heavy like a stout.

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 10:13 PM

I like the sound of that. If I see it, I'll be grabbing it. Lagunitas' IPA Maximus is a strong and full flavored IPA. I've been drinking that and Flying Dog's Snake Dog IPA a lot.

With the exception of this week, I've been on a little Oktoberfest kick. 'Tis the season, ya know?

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 10:21 PM

Oh, yeah. I love fall seasonal beers. I miss Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, but Shock Top has an alright Pumpkin Wheat beer that my girlfriend likes, so I've been drinking that with her. The New Belgium Brewing Company has a good fall seasonal called hoptober. Sam Adams Octoberfest is always around...

Jazz Funeral 10-13-2011 10:25 PM

Just had a Hoptober today, actually! I was sad to see it go. I think I'll grab a whole 6'er next time. You know, while the gettin's good.

TNfootballfan62 10-13-2011 10:49 PM

I hear ya.

Oh, and to somewhat get this thread back on topic...

Jazz Funeral 10-28-2011 05:01 PM

The Derek Trucks Band - Mahjoun/Greensleeves

The Warren Haynes Band - Hattiesberg Hustle (I was there, I had to post this)
