This is a very easy tune to play.&quot; It may be a simple tune, but I doubt it&#39;s easy to rip it up like he does in this performance.</p><p><a href="http://www.wwoz.org/blog/253691" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.wwoz.org/blog/253691#comments WWOZ Latest Thu, 24 Jul 2014 20:02:00 +0000 David Stafford 253691 at http://www.wwoz.org Roy Ayers, "Everybody Loves the Sunshine", 1992 http://www.wwoz.org/blog/253436 <p>Check out jazz-funk pioneer Roy Ayers playing &quot;Everybody Loves the Sunshine&quot; live in 1992 from the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton, a town in Somerset, England.

Born in 1911, he lived through the last century of development and change that most of us read about in books. His memory was sharp and he could remember things like they happened yesterday. I loved talking to him about growing up in the city, being a fourth generation New Orleanian myself.</p><p><a href="http://www.wwoz.org/blog/252861" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.wwoz.org/blog/252861#comments Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:46:00 +0000 SALLY YOUNG 252861 at http://www.wwoz.org Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue, "To Make Amends" http://www.wwoz.org/blog/252761 <p>Just released: the first music video by Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue for &quot;To Make Amends&quot; a song from their most recent album <i>Last To Leave</i>.
