Blues Traveler: Sweet Pain (Live)

Here’s a clip of Blues Traveler performing at a Bridge School benefit concert in October 1997. This acoustic version of “Sweet Pain” is just pure magic, thanks in part to Bobby Sheehan’s terrific work on the acoustic bass guitar.

I really dig Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles, and I also dig NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series. So here’s a double dose of awesome. Even better, the first thing you hear is Sharay Reed, who is putting on a clinic in this clip.

Jimmy Herring Band: Matt’s Funk

I rediscovered this video by Jimmy Herring Band over the weekend and watched it many times. The entire band just brings it on “Matt’s Funk.” Neal Fountain was part of Jimmy’s touring band at that time, and he lays down a tasty line.
