I love "Take Five!" But then, I love a lot of Dave Brubeck's stuff!

As for blues, you've got to check out Janis Joplin's Turtle Blues.

I see hingehead has already mentioned B.B. King -- here he is doing Three O'Clock Blues.

He also does a great cover of a song called "Never Trust A Woman." heh!
(Unfortunately, I couldn't find him doing that one on youtube -- but he does it very well!)

My favorite Squirrel Nut Zippers track is "I Raise Hell." Smile

(But, of course, can't find that one on youtube either! Confused )

Someone on Facebook turned me on to this guy. I'd not heard him before and enjoyed it so much I thought I'd share it with other jazz enthusiasts. Made me want to hear a lot more of his music.

@Butrflynet,
He has a great voice. Can't say I have ever heard of him either. Thanks for the introduction.

@panzade,
Quite pleasantly surprising. Especially the atypical instrumentation.

@Butrflynet,
Early Autumn

Really important recording for Stan Getz. Listen to his great solo, which established him as a leading tenor sax man
