Have you ever had one of those moments in life where you feel dumb/silly/immature because you were the LAST person on earth to hear a great musician - but it's mixed with the thrill of finding a new artist to enjoy? That was me last night. I'm almost 40, I love jazz, I love the blues, but I've never been the guy who studies up who is who, but when I'm in the car, I'm usually tuned into the local jazz station. Last night, they did a showcase on Michael Bloomfield.
Anyway - today's tunes have been rather bluesy and I couldn't be happier to have caught that special on the radio last night. So if you like the blues... and maybe you've never heard of Michael Bloomfield or Al Kooper... well, you're in for a treat (I think).
