  1. Cross Mama has no time for Rahsaan’s showboating. I, on the other hand, never tire of his antics. Nice video.

    This is great Ash! I remember when I realized that all the great rock guitarists literally sat at the feet of the great blues guitar players that came before them. Bruce looks like he’s having a blast. Clapton, Paige, Richards- they all paid tribute. I have a great album, which I think is Scandinavian in origin (the liner notes are incomprehensible), that has collected the original blues versions of all the famous Led Zeppelin songs that they”adapted’ for the rock audience, such as Killing Floor, Your Time is Gonna Come, etc. It’s pretty cool.

    Great song – but the audience was kinda odd looking. Esp. “cross mamma”.

    Enjoyed this music. Anyone notice “cross mamma” 1:17-1:20 seconds in? Funny to see!

    1) I’ve been looking forward to this all day. Great stuff

    2) I could be completely off base, but I sense a gauntlet has been thrown down – what are the chances of seeing a reed player from a certain band we all know throw down by playing a bari sax and contra-bass clarinet at the same time? 😉 😉 😉

    As always, thanks.

    thanks the opportunity to enjoy Rashaan Roland Kirk .. I’d tell the genie of the lamp that one of my 3 wishes would be to be there when he performed his live version of “If I Loved You” as captured on his “Bright Moments” album disk 2.
