It's That Time Of The Year .... Vacation Time

The wive and I are off to Costa Rica for 4 week road trip doing the sites, searching for the wonderful wildlife they have, enjoying the food and generally relaxing.
Hope we see this really cool frog.
This means no more postings, re-posts or requests for at least 5 weeks. Look after yourselves and  enjoy the music wherever you buy or find it.

Billy Branch: One memorable session that comes to mind was with Hayes Ware. You've heard of Hip Link Chain? For a few years Hayes played bass with Hip but he also played a little guitar. Hayes called me to do this project. The studio was right down the street from Theresa's. This old guy named Grover had a little basement studio. We had no rehearsal and this guy he played very rudimentary guitar but his songs were so original. Every time I play it for anyone, they always want a copy. The actual LP it's called Hayes Ware's Blues He Got A Woman. It is the funkiest sound and man you never heard a tone like I got in that studio. Never. This guy Grover was some kind of recording engineering genius. The tone of the harp is like the best of the tone of Sonny Boy on Chess Records. It's deep. That one was memorable because everything just fit. It was one of those magical moments. There were no rehearsals. Then you listen to it 20 years later and think damn that was some brilliant shit. (found on Youtube)

Doesn't get much funkier and low down than this gem.
