My annual Christmas Card. This is from a group from about 50 miles down the road from me.

This was sent to me by a French friend who is an honorary Tennessean. The singer is Johnny Halliday (stage name) that recently passed away. Like Elvis he had a great, strong voice. He wrote this song about my home state of Tennessee. I agree there is just "something about Tennessee". RIP, Johnny Halliday.

Thanks for this post, Don. Like most Americans, I suspect, I never heard of this guy until he passed. Great voice . . . pretty clear that he was adored by his fans. And how cool to hear a Frenchman singing a tender song about Tennessee.

The other big takeaway from this clip is that they grow some really long-legged women over there!

In keeping with legendary French artists, hereís one of the greatest living gypsy jazz players. His fretwork is absolutely dizzying.



And here is the Frenchman who inspired him and countless others in what I believe is the only known live video. Django is on the short lists of most playersí greatest-guitarist-ever . . . and his playing is all the more phenomenal when you realize the two smaller fingers on his fretting hand were paralyzed when he was badly burned a fire.

Ian, a great post. The two paralyzed fingers explain why he was picking in a flat top style. There's no way he could do it in the classical style. It seems he compensated for that by picking one string at a time. Whatever style it was, he was great.

AusCan, your Christmas song reminded me of our family Christmas dinner two years ago. It was at my son's home. He came to me, and said, "Dad would you make the gravy. All the old cooks have passed on now". Then it dawned on me . . . . . . .

Paul Kelly is a "sleeper" in the music industry. Lots of talent. Maybe not an Aussie Leonard Cohen, but he has talent in spades.
Have we ever had any Carly Simon? Great American singer.

Brings back lots of good memories. Carly's mom was a neighbor of my parents on Martha's Vineyard.

Good one, Ted. I've got the Carly channel saved on my ROKU.

Ian, will you be "back to Tennessee" for Christmas?


Here's a Bluegrass number from Doyle Lawson and his band.

Keeping to the Tennessee theme, here are two great pickers. I did love it when Chet Adkins and Jerry Reed would team up.

30 years ago....

What do you get when you combine:

Roy Orbison
Bruce Springsteen
Elvis Costello
Jackson Browne
Bonnie Raitt
K. D. Lang
The TCB Band and other guests


Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night

The special consisted of a performance of many of Orbison's hits at the then Ambassador Hotel's Coconut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles.

The five guitar jam in this song is amazing.



If you don't think Roy and Bruce are having a good time, make an appointment with your optometrist.



The concert, TV special, and album revitalized Roy Orbison's career. Sadly, he would die 14 months later, working himself to death.

Another fine singer/songwriter, Don. Nice to see him performing again after a 15-year hiatus. Iíll throw out one of my faves and hope itís not one I posted before. These guys were amazing players (for a bunch of brawling drunks). It may be an urban legend, but I heard that The Who didnít want to follow them on stage.

As a fan of standard country Western, I am surprised to have missed this fellow, now that I am on to him, wanted to share. Thanks,

Good one, Al. I've seen Billy Joe live a couple of times. My sister-in-law is a big fan. There's nothing like the pure sound of acoustic music by the "Singers and Song Writers". There are several songs on this one.

Here is a seriously nice track from my favourite R&B/acid jazz/soul band Incognito. From the "Transatlantic RPM" CD, and called 1975, a surprisingly catchy tuneful, slightly nostalgic, with Incognito rhythm. Maybe they owe something to EW&F. The band is UK based,led by Mauritian born Jean Paul Maunick, track features Joy Rose lead vocal.

Greetings,
Sorry if I've posted this before. Not necessarily the tune, although it is catchy, but the "instrument".
