Here's some John Lee Hooker.

And John Lee Hooker with ZZ top.

You guys are overwhelming me! I'm a big "old school" jazz buff and could spend hours chatting about it. Simply dropping names here doesn't do the subject justice. I mean, for example, I just read a whole BOOK about Louis Armstrong--in the 1930s ONLY! It sure would be fun to have a gathering of jazz fans to listen and talk about the greatest music ever invented (along with classical).

I don't like programed (dance, or club) music - it all sounds the same to me.

Sort of like every commercial you ever heard on TV.

I hope I didn't offend you by thinking of the CeeLo song. It just reminded me of that.

I prefer the fast version of Gnarls Barkeley's fast version of  " Crazy"

Though both are great.

His Slow version follows

Here's the fast tempo that I don't think he likes but I think is better.

Cee Lo Green and Gnarles Barkley are indeed different musicians.

I was thinking of the "Fuck You" song when I referenced CeeLo in a previous post.

Charlie Parker is great. {I saw the movie}.

Miles Davis, and Chet Baker are also a couple of my favorites.

Yes, that recording of Dizzy playing Night in Tunisia is just the epitome of cool.  Hard to top that!

In the Chaka Khan version of Night in Tunisia, the big saxophone break just before the 4 min. mark is actually Charlie Parker which they sampled in.  Kinda fun and a nice homage.  

Speaking of.........

Anyone see the movie "Bird" directed by Clint Eastwood?  An excellent biographical movie about Charlie Parker.
