Shuffle kerfuffle

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Lately I've been trying to really challenge my feel and timing sensibilities. My current favourite gig is with a blues band, and for me these things are where it's at. The drummer and I already run a pretty tight ship as it is, but the intricacies of perfecting a romping blues set are such an immense source of pleasure, I feel like pushing the envelope a bit.

So, any suggestions for some inspiring records?
You know, the kind that makes everybody want to get another round in. :)

An oldie, but romps like a good 'un. . . . Jeff Golub and Henry Butler

Or go off in a slightly different direction:

Thought i'd chip in myself!

Nothing extraordinarily taxing technically, but to me this just says it all:

Came across this old thread by accident... Always happy to see Rocco’s stuff get a mention, so I thought a thank you was in order - more than a year overdue! 😊 

I found this the other day, which I thought zips along rather nicely. Some tasteful and complementary playing over a lively rhythm section. I love hearing a proper big band play the blues. Luxurious!

Very nice. Great tone out of a 5 string Sadowsky.
