This is some feel good music right here. Don’t know about you, but it’s just what I need right now. Jon Cleary is so damn good, looking forward to seeing him live sometime.
I first learned of Jon Cleary from his playing on the fantastic Taj Mahal record Senor Blues. He brought out a live record with this band here recently, Mo Hippa, it’s a really good time. Jon Cleary also lends his piano mastery to the new John Scofield gospel record Piety Street.
This is a broadcast of his show that was on BBC with some interview questions. The entire show was not broadcast.
You can sample the tune “Fools Game > Just Kissed My Baby” over here. Warning: It could give you a hankering for some pork chops and gravy, but you will feel like a king.
