The Live Music Archive is a great place to stream live music. I’ve got a few shows up there (and hope to add more in the future). Every now and again I’ll suggest a tune for you to check out in these “From the Archive” posts.
Today’s is a solo version of “Drop These Blues” from summer ’09. I was trying out some finishing touches on the song to hone in on how I would sing and play it on the “Great Unknown” CD, but also didn’t hold back from feeling out some improvised vocals toward the end. On the CD, Kenton rips a beautiful piano solo in that section, but when I play it solo, sometimes I’ll do a little extra singing there. This was one of those nights I was feeling it.
It’s at http://www.archive.org/details/gwa2009-07-25 – Just click on track 7- “07.Drop These Blues_vbr” – in the player on the right-hand side of the screen… hope you enjoy!
PS – At the end of the track you can hear someone say “You like that? Isn’t that good?” – I suspect they are talking about the hot seafood appetizer, but perhaps they were talking about the song! If you recognize that voice as your own, please clarify for me – it’s been nagging me for 1 year, 3 months, 13 days, and a few hours. Thanks!
