Impressive!

Side note: I love the song, but I would think it'd be nicer to include a Saudi playing somewhere... just my opinion, though. :p

Right around the 3:30 mark there's a guy playing a bit of a solo on an old National reso (I'm pretty sure the sub-title said he was in New Orleans). Standing behind him is someone that looks for all the world like he's playing a piece of automobile tailpipe.

The reason it looks that way is because he is playing a piece of tailpipe. That's my friend Slim and he makes stand-up basses out of automobile gas tanks and often uses tailpipe for the necks. The very one in the video is here in Seattle, though he's not been playing it lately as he found one of those old Kay aluminum stand-up basses.

He also plays a mean, nay, vicious, harmonica. On a rack while still keeping a killer bass line going.

I just saw the trailer dvd for this last week. Like you, I had to hold back the tears... It was just so so amazing!

This group did a live presentation for the Starbucks leadership confrence a few weeks ago. The conference was also joined with one of the largest volunteer efforts to try and reabilitate New Orleans.

Sbux will be selling a the dvd sometime early 09. Cant wait to get my copy! Definately something worth deaching!



Wait till you hear the Marley collabs. Truly breathtaking, something that will make any musician weak in the knees. (There's even an 'uke in there :D)
