Music, music, music

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood – Live from Madison Square Garden

Two cd’s worth of “old fart music”, as in songs of Jimi Hendrix, Derek and the Dominoes, Blind Faith, Robert Johnson, as well as Clapton and Winwood. Clapton’s playing is just plain good; of course EC does the best he can with the vocals, which isn’t shabby.  Winwood’s keyboards and vocal are top notch. A must buy for you older rock and rollers.

Steve Earl – Townes

Steve Earl’s homage to Townes Van Zandt. Wow! A cd of a master playing the music of a master.

Allen Toussaint – The Bright Mississippi

New Orleans jazz played so well; songs of Sidney Bechet, “Jelly Roll” Morton, Joe Oliver, Django Reinhardt, T. Monk and Duke Ellington with a couple of traditional songs as well. Just the thing for quiet hot summer nights!!

    Did some serious listening this weekend. The Clapton/Winwood concert displays both their talents. I especially like their renditions of songs from “Layla and Other Love Songs”, with Winwood doing great playing the Duane Allman harmonies and Bobby Whitlock vocals.

    The Allen Toussaint CD is an audiophiles delight, a great recording of really good acoustic instruments, piano, clarinet, trumpet, etc. As I said, a great CD for a quiet, hot summer’s evening!
