The late, great Snooks Eaglin is in fine form and accompanied by George Porter Jr. in these videos from at the Lone Star Roadhouse in New York. The venue existed from 1989-92 (it was a successor to the Lone Star Cafe, 1976-1989) ); this, combined with the fact that most of the songs here come from Eaglin's Out of Nowhere (1988) and Teasin' You(1992) albums, serve to roughly date the performance.

At the beginning of "Red Beans", Snooks refers the piano player as "keyboard man": Jon Cleary.
