Vulfpeck with Bernard Purdie: Kid Charlemagne

3. Vulfpeck with Bernard Purdie: Kid Charlemagne

This must be what living the dream looks like. Vulfpeck performed with drum legend Bernard Purdie at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York last year, which included this cover of Steely Dan’s “Kid Charlemagne,” a tune that originally featured Purdie. And it is obvious bassist Joe Dart was loving life…

War: The Cisco Kid

4. War: The Cisco Kid

I’ve been on a real War kick this week, which was kicked off by watching this clip of the band from The Midnight Special in 1973. “The Cisco Kid” is a simple but fun song, and bassist B.B. Dickerson lays into it with tons of pocket…

6. Widespread Panic & Tedeschi Trucks Band: You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I love how the Tedeschi Trucks Band loves to collaborate with other artists and bands. Here they are performing the Stones’ classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” with Widespread Panic in Birmingham, Alabama last year. Bassist Dave Schools lays down the perfect groove behind the tune, with some great musicianship all around…

7. Chicago: 25 or 6 to 4 (Live, 1970)

Meshell Ndegeocello: AOL Sessions

10. Meshell Ndegeocello: AOL Sessions

I remember this incredible AOL Session with Meshell Ndegeocello from 2002. It went missing for some time, but it has now resurfaced. I especially love her performance of “Faithful,” which happens around the 12:34 mark of this video. Thanks to my good friend Ted Gould for sharing this!
