Some Crazy Ass Jazz


While I was recovering from a hole drilled in my head, Willis had another gig with Buck's Vibe at Steamer's in Orange County.  Steamer's usually videos the gigs, and I was lucky enough to get a DVD copy of this night.  The video itself is crappy, but the audio holds up well.  One tune in particular grabbed me, a version of Ramblin' by Ornette Coleman, one of my favorite jazz musicians.

What's rather unique is that this Buck's Vibe version of a New York City tune starts out with a New Orleans beat and then visits Nashville on it's way through a 16 minute tour de force.

You can download or listen to the tune here.

Crazy ass jazz indeed!
