Now that I’ve figured how to embed videos into a WordPress blog that’s not on their server, I will be posting videos of some of my favourite music.
Today’s video is of Champion Jack Dupree with King Curtis at the Montreaux Jazz festival in 1971 and it is without a doubt in my mind the greatest live blues I’ve ever come into contact with. I remember when I first heard Blues at Montreux back in 1980 I was so totally blown away. I felt that I had found some music that actually seemed to epitomise the best of what blues has to offer. Enjoy.
