    Larkin Poe, Kindred Spirits.

    Very nice set of covers, a very wide range indeed. From Robert Johnson to Neil Young to Derek and the Dominoes. I'm particularly fond of their take on the Moody Blues' Nights in White Satin. Lots of tasty guitar/dobro leads throughout. I'm pretty sure all of these songs long predate either sisters' birth. Good taste.

    Brilliant musicians. I have been listening to them on Youtube for the last half hour and they blew me away. Particularly like the Mad as a Hatter track but I can't find it released on an album.Thanks so much

    It is indeed difficult to find their music in CD or downloadable form, other than in iTunes which I can still access in Canada; they release a lot of things as EPs and repeat stuff. They don't even have a Bandcamp page, which would be the logical thing. Live performance seems to be their thing.

    There's a post expressing frustration at this, including a zippyshare link to get a "made" album. I wouldn't use it myself, malware warnings not to mention the stealing issue.

    And now for something completely different - Cindy Blackman Santana and "Give the Drummer Some".

    Blackman Santana is an excellent jazz drummer, widely acknowledged as one of the very best. She's married to Carlos Santana. The album showcases her drumming, not to mention the guitar of Carlos along with the guitar of John McLaughlin.

    Carlos and McLaughlin are both in rock guitar mode, in McLaughlin's case reminiscent of his early Mahavishnu Orchestra phase; he subsequently went back to mainly jazzish and eastern styles. Although they don't play together here, the guitar sound harks back to their joint album "Love Devotion Surrender", done under the influence of Sri Chinmoy in the early 70s. Also featured is metal guitarist Vernon Reid, who duets on one track with Carlos.

    But the star feature here is Blackman Santana's drumming and her accomplished straightforward vocals. Rhythmic and melodic and jazzish.

    Carlos must be in his 70s now and sheĺs what 30 something!

    Sadly, not for me. No Qobuz in Canada quite yet.

    Actually, she's a well-preserved 61. Carlos is 73. Perfectly respectable.

    She's pretty well-known in her own right, having worked with people like Pharaoah Sanders, Cassandra Wilson and Lenny Kravitz for years, aside from leading her own band.

    One of these older pearls seldom listened.
