BUJU… out of federal prison!

This is the only image of the song I could find…playing the studio version. I know she has lots of fans here. Such an amazing song.

T-Bone Walker’s, Stormy Monday. How many covers of that song are there? A good one here…but it’s one of those songs that’s almost always good. Trippy guitar work…with the feeling.

Disc 1 of this great set.

A tremendous scholar who understands all music, including very early music, is played for entertainment, inspiration, comfort, and this must be reflected in performance. His recordings and live performances are thus wonderfully evocative.
