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!
