Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

Guitars & All That Jazz was a radio station that webcast via Live365 for 11 years, ending in June 2011. The playlist consisted of guitar instrumentals, jazz, big band, early rock 'n' roll, lounge music and classic easy listening.

I hope to share some of this music with you via this blog. Most of it will be taken from the original vinyl (LPs and 45s) , cassettes and the occasional commercially unavailable CD.

Here's hoping you'll find something to enjoy. Please note files are available only for a limited time.

I urge you to purchase the digital version of the albums featured, either on CD or via download, wherever possible.

Art Blakey, Dr. John & David (Fathead) Newman - Bluesiana Triangle

The primarily New Age label Windham Hill brought together Dr. John, David (Fathead) Newman and Art Blakey in 1990 for a blues-based session that was dubbed Bluesiana Triangle. Bluesiana II appeared the following year (Blakey died before that session took place) and that was the extent of the collaboration.

On the debut disc, there's plenty of Dr. John's boogie-woogie piano and raspy vocals, some soulful sax and flute from Newman and the whole thing being driven by Blakey's drums. The opening track is a fine instrumental jam on Newman's Heads Up. Get it below. The MP3 is from a cassette version of the album.

Heads Up

Neither Bluesiana CD remains in print, although used copies are plentiful (and reasonably priced) in the Amazon Marketplace. The albums aren't available as legal downloads.

Via YouTube, here's another sampling of Bluesiana Triangle.
