Today’s YouTube is Jesse Taylor

Posted on: Thursday, Dec 28, 2006

Man could this cat play. This is a fabulous clip of the late Jesse “Guitar” Taylor from Lubbock, TX. Tell you what – he’s also got a fabulous band with him – that night in the Cricketers in London must have been a blast. The groove on this song should be bottled and sold.
Thanks to Grahame for finding this – it’s a peach.

Thanks for putting this up Ken – he was a quite superb player! A good cd with Jesse on top form is fellow Lubbock rocker Joe Ely’s “Live at Antone’s” release from 2000 on the Rounder label – check it out! Another YouTube clip from the same gig as the posted one also features Texas legends Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore – not strictly blues, but top stuff!
