    Bobby Rush, I Can't Find My Keys.

    The Nashville Scene calls this song "a classic bit of funk neurosis."

    Just heard this on the "Blues Night" edition of Nightside on local public radio. Featuring Wynton Marsalis, Eric Clapton, & Taj Mahal... live... and they've got some seriously sweet Dixieland sh*t happenin'.... :cool:

    Hate "traditional" Christmas tunes, been waitin' for someone to play this, & The World Café just closed with it... used to sing a version of it myself. :cool:



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And the Nightside host (local) surprised me just now... I swear, I thought it was a Djanjo/Benny team-up or something! Now this take on a tired holiday tune I can dig....

    This is some jumpin' sweetness!

    I’ve had to downsize my considerable entertainment media collection to fit in a small studio apartment, and it’s making me very unhappy. One of the vinyl albums I decided to part with is “Street Life”, the very popular 1970’s jazz album from The Crusaders. But that’s okay, because I can buy the digital version on iTunes or at another site. Last night, I opened up the Amazon Prime Music app and listened to the wonderful title track with Randy Crawford’s delicious vocals. Be warned: This is the extended album length version, which clocks in at a little over 11 minutes. But it’s worth it. Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy.
