Another disc I have been really enjoying is Eric Clapton’s The Breeze which is the Tribute CD Clapton did for JJ Cale. Many guests on this CD including Willy Nelson, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, John Mayer and Mark Knopfler. Jim Keltner does the drumming with Nathan East on the bass. Great grooves, great flow and you will realize what a prolific writer JJ Cale was. Check it out!

Really enjoying the Stones CD Blue and Lonesome. Very organic and these guys can play the blues. Anyone who knows me knows I am a big Charlie fan and Stones fan. On this Cd Charlie does not disappoint. Swingin grooves and great drum sounds. This record was recorded live with no overdubs (the Gone Tribe approach). Charlie makes his kit talk.

I picked up the new Paul Simon CD Stranger to Stranger – Cool Cool Cool. Once again Paul Simon takes us on a cultural and rhythmical exploration. All good and I am still wrapping my head around it. I do like albums that challenge you. D
