Two of the players in Band Of Joy are faves of mine - Buddy Miller and Darrell Scott.
A guy who is in a similar vein has been getting a lot of airplay at my hose recently. He called his music hobobilly.I speak of Ronnie Lane. On order I have Ronnie Lanes HOW COMEHow Come.
Yeah it's off topic, but there was something primal and spontaneous about his music and players like him and not so far from the part of the Jazz ethic that says it is better to play it from the seat of the pants than have every measure plotted out and planned minutely ahead of time. Especially when there is some talent involved in the playing.
