blues with buddy [march 19, 2005]

Buddy Guy, at The Tabernacle. Playing the blues. Being as salacious, leeringly playful, suggestive and impeccably brilliant "all across the board" -- his playing, his singing, the jokes, the tour about the place during an extremely extended middle-section laden with solos, the works. A great showman, a wonderful bluesman. The control he exercised on the volume and tone as he caressed each note in his delicately fine solos was enough for me to agree with Clapton's estimation of BG as one of the greatest living blues guitarists today. The little hommage to Cream and Hendrix was just icing on the cake. Time and money well spent.
