I hope some of the fine listeners and followers of Bob Dorr’s great rock and roll history show came here from the plug he allowed me as I guested today. I have some disagreements with IPR viewpoints but none of us are actually bad, just misguided. Our mutual interests should help us learn and get along and make things better, right?
I’d guess a lot of you find a mutual interest in this incredible band and T-Bone Walker. We took our son and his friend, both high school trumpet players to Iowa City to see Dizzy not too long before he perished. He’d seen better days but the band was mesmerizingly talented and together.
Check out this ultimate crossover collaboration with Walker having a blast and the boys in the band grooving along with history:
