Jon Lord - Celebrating his incredible legacy.
During 2011/12, Jon Lord finally had the opportunity to record his much loved 'Concerto for Group and Orchestra' which took place over several sessions with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra both in Liverpool and at Abbey Road studios in London. This behind the scenes documentary piece gives us an up close and personal view of the man himself, and his brilliant musical legacy.

My friend Guitar Shorty has died. He was an amazing blues guitar player and singer. Jimi Hendrix told Shorty this: ‘Shorty, you’re the greatest guitar player I’ve ever seen. I used to go AWOL from the Army just to hear you play.’" Guitar Shorty sat in with my band at The Joint and also did several shows with me at Kulak's Woodshed. He walked off the stage out onto the street, still playing his guitar. Someone said "It was like watching Jimmy Hendrix play in your living room". We will be posting these shows soon and we will let you know on this page. Goodbye to my friend Guitar Shorty. -Jack
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Bonnie in the 90’s. What a sweet sweet lady!
Bonnie Raitt: “I can’t pick a favourite,” “It would be like picking your favourite kid. John Lee and Muddy, those two were as happy a version of a bluesman as you’ll ever meet. Muddy was just fantastic and dignified, very smart, a great sense of humour, really good to his band. Beloved for a reason, y’know? You can just see from the footage of him on stage what a great guy he was. I remember a lot of laughing. He drank champagne and he loved being on the road. We toured for many years, until he passed away.
“John Lee was so intimidating on stage but such a sweetheart off stage. They were both so delighted to be revered by a younger generation. Y’know, we had Motown, Stax, Atlantic and all the great soul music coming out of America, but in terms of really appreciating Chicago blues, Detroit blues, Texas blues, it was Eric Clapton, the Stones, people like that. Once people got that blues bug, it was just a fantastic opportunity to give somebody like Muddy and John Lee all the recognition they had been long deserving.

I had the honor & pleasure to record 3 songs with this blues man in the 80’s. He would lay down his phenomenal guitar tracks & just when you thought we we done, he would pull out his fiddle!
Remembering Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown born #onthisday !
Given the "Gatemouth" nickname by a high school instructor who accused Brown of having a "voice like a gate," Brown used it throughout his well-known career. In 1947, Brown's impromptu fill-in for an ailing T-Bone Walker at Houston entrepreneur Don Robey's Bronze Peacock nightclub convinced Robey to assume control of Brown's career. After two singles for Aladdin stiffed, Robey created his Peacock label in 1949.
Brown's style proved influential to a legion of Houston musicians; Albert Collins, Johnny Copeland, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Cal Green, and many more. Gate stayed with Peacock through 1960. The R&B charts didn't reflect Brown's importance (he hit only once nationwide with 1949's two-sided smash "Mary Is Fine"/"My Time Is Expensive"). But his instrumentals ("Boogie Uproar," "Gate Walks to Board," 1954's "Okie Dokie Stomp"), "She Walked Right In," "Rock My Blues Away", and "Dirty Work at the Crossroads" are a major part of the Texas postwar blues legacy.
The '60s weren't all that kind to Brown. But the decade was chiefly memorable for his 1966 work as house band leader for The Beat, a groundbreaking syndicated R&B television program out of Dallas. When Brown began to rebuild his career in the '70s, he was determined to do things his way. Country, jazz, even calypso now played a prominent role in his concerts; he became as likely to launch into an old-time fiddle hoedown as a swinging guitar blues.
He was featured on the TV show Hee Haw with pal Roy Clark after they cut a 1979 duet album for MCA, Makin' Music. During his career, Brown recorded 30 records. He won a Grammy Award for Traditional Blues in 1983 for his album, Alright Again.

Remembering the blues legend Muddy Waters (April 4, 1913 – April 30, 1983)
"Muddy Waters was a man, a full-grown man, a hoochie-coochie man, but the blues he sang and played were as basic and real as the sound he made when he hummed and beat on the ground with his stick as a child. His original band, the first truly electric band, had deep Delta roots and two brilliant musicians in harp player Little Walter Jacobs and guitarist Jimmy Rogers. But they never played blues quite as elemental or as deep as the blues Muddy Waters made alone, with just his voice and the keening metal sound of his slide guitar.
MUDDY WATERS WAS A POWER IN THE world of rock, as the list of his disciples and devotees attests, but he was much more than that. He was a great American singer. Muddy’s timing, his phrasing, his razorsharp intonation and command of the subtlest shadings of pitch, and his vocabulary of vocal effects – –from the purest falsetto to the grittiest roar –– put him in a class by himself." - Rolling Stone

Herb Alpert has 87 candles on his birthday cake today. He is best known for his music from Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.
Alpert's musical accomplishments include five No. 1 albums and 28 albums total on the Billboard Album chart, nine Grammy Awards, fourteen platinum albums, and fifteen gold albums. As of 1996, he had sold 72 million albums worldwide. Alpert is the only recording artist to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist ("This Guy's in Love with You", 1968) and an instrumentalist ("Rise", 1979). In 1966, Herb Alpert sold over 13 million records. That was more than The Beatles sold that year.
He is also a recording industry executive, the "A" of A&M Records, a record company he and business partner, Jerry Moss, founded in the early 60's. Remember what we said before, he sold over 72 million albums worldwide, and he owned the record company….
Kinda makes "A Taste of Honey" sound more like "Cha Ching"!!!!
Is there a certain song that Herb played that brings back some good memories to you?
Happy Birthday Herb!! Thanks for the music you made and the music you made possible for us to hear!

Machine Head is the greatest rock album of all time. It’s phenomenal from start to finish! There are NO FILLER TRACKS. And Made in Japan is the greatest live album of all time. No other band can make that claim.

THE Original 'Rock and Roll Bad Boy", "The Killer" is 86 today.
One of the founding fathers of Rock and Roll, Jerry Lee Lewis, is celebrating his 86th birthday today.
It is a well know fact that Jerry likes to party. At his 41st birthday party, in 1976, while drunk, he tried to shoot a soda bottle with his .357 Magnum. He missed but did manage to hit his bass player, Norman Owens, twice in the chest. Owens made a full recovery.
We are thinking todays celebration will be just a little less….
Happy Birthday Mr. Lewis!!! Thank you for the music!
